Product Description

Rack your lunchbox with API's American-made rack ears. Lunchbox Rack Ears are available for both the current production model lunchboxes, as well as the previous model. Made from aluminum and finished with a durable black coat, they're designed specifically to fit into your rack for a square, clean aesthetic look. Current models, which were produced after 2010, feature both XLR and DB25 connections and "HC" in the serial number on the back panel and measure 13.9" X 5.25" X 7.25”. Previous model lunchboxes will not list “HC” in the serial number and measure 12.4" X 5.25" X 7.25”. These rack ears will work for 2010 and later model 500-6B racks with serial numbers containing HC, as well as 500-8B racks.

Please note: Rack will require 3U of rack space in your 19-inch rack.

Fit like a glove

By Paul P on February 5, 2021

First of all, this fit my 500-8B lunchbox perfectly. Previously it was sitting on top of my 10-slot 500vpr and its nice to have it a bit more secure in the rack (I don't take it out of the studio). Installation was about 30 minutes including removing and replacing all 8 500-series modules, adding the ears, and mounting it back in the rack.

The instruction sheet I received looked like it was copied on a 1980's ditto/mimeograph machine, Faxed on thermal paper, left out in the sun to fade for about a year, and then copied again. In other words, practically illegible. Luckily I didn't really need it so 5 stars anyway.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
