Vintage King API 500-6B Rack Ears Kit - For Older Models

Heavy-duty rack ears made with 13 gauge steel in durable black satin powder coat finish for older models without DB25 connectors
MFR# API-1

Product Description

You asked, we listened. Now, you can finally rack your API Lunchbox® — and do it in rugged, USA-made Vintage King style. Our exclusive Lunchbox® Rack Ears come in two versions, one for older XLR-only models and one for newer XLR/DB25 models. Whichever you need, every set of Lunchbox® Rack Ears is built tough to protect your investment. We make each one from heavy-duty 13-gauge steel, treat it with a durable black satin powder-coat finish, and add a bold screen-printed VK logo designating quality. It's the ultimate API Lunchbox® accessory, only at Vintage King.

How To Choose The Right Version
There are two versions of the API Lunchbox® — and we've made a set of Lunchbox® Rack Ears to fit each one.

This model fits the older version, which features XLR-only connections and measures 12 3/8" x 7 3/8" x 5 1/4" in length.

 

Note: Rack will require 3u of rackspace in your 19-inch rack.

Well made and sturdy. Installation is fiddly but you only have to do it once so not so bad. Bought a second set, very happy.

Great product, works as expected!

My old 6 bay api lunchbox needed a place in my rack and Vintage King had the solution with this rack ears kit. It works nicely, is robust and solid, my only issue is that the kit assumes you still have the screws for the original handle, I did not have the handle which I lost a long time ago and needed to find a new set of screws. Not a big deal but it took me a couple of attempts to find the right size of screws. Other than that fits perfect and mounts elegantly in my rack

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.

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.
