FYI ... I ordered my cases on Friday and they are en route. Although you can put a code in for the $20 off, you will still be charged $20 each for shipping. DJ Supply claims the cases to be oversized for shipping purposes.

But be sure to put the code in, otherwise you'll pay full price and still get tagged for shipping.
Tony : It's not too bad. A carpet knife, your foam inserts removed from the shipping boxes, some 3M spray glue, a tape measurer, one bottle of a quality Merlot, and one hours worth of time (45 minutes for the first one, 15 minutes for the second).
I got free shipping and they were'nt oversized. Go figger?!!!
You can shorten that 15 minutes if you just cut the moveable divider supplied with the case that is covered on both sides with foam and use it as a spacer vertically between the 2 columns. Fits like a glove and doesnt move about. AND ....there is room for the remote!!!!
Life is GOOD!!!
thanks Cap!!
here is a link to the thread of my pics from when I did my SKB's

I think the main difference when I made mine was when I saw Caps, he left space at the end for the remote, it looked like the towers inside were just a bit off center and I thought that maybe when carrying by the handle, the case would not be balanced. So I tried to center mine but that didn't leave room for the remote.

Cap can jump in here and tell me that his is balanced. Smile I should have asked before I did mine.

Chuck : I don't know if they are perfectly balanced or not. There's no noticable issues when carrying by the handle so I guess I lucked out.
nope, plus you can put all kinds of other stuff in there. Im working on what to put in and how but there is enough friction and contact that the vertical radiators of the L1s dont move. There is some motion of course but no "sliding" to and fro and everything is padded that they contact.
Colleagues : I have four L1s and two are stored in my trailer as ceremonial and/or cocktail hour systems.

The 3rd and 4th system radiators, housed in the SKB cases, are stored upright in the trailer.

Ttwo weekends ago (see Vista photos with wireless remoting), in removing the radiators from the SKB case which was stored upright, the shipping foam had become compacted allowing the radiators almost 2" of possible internal shifting.

I'm thinking the shipping foam is okay for horizontal SKB use, but not for long term vertical storage in a trailered configuration.

Next step is to find a non-abrasive sturdier material to use as radiator indents.

In Mr. sjonesjrmd's design, inserting some form of padding protection on the far right and left ends is crucial for vertical storage or the radiator ends will ding or bend.
I too have just received mine. I'm going with the method above for now. With so much padding already in the case I don't see much movement happening at all. The thin plywood inside the foam insert cuts easily with a razor knife. Put some duct tape over the rough straight edge and it fits perfectly.
