12.3 Mechanical Details
The following provides information for mixer installation. The Qu mixer can be operated on a flat surface
or fitted into a flightcase. The Qu-16 can be mounted in a 19” equipment rack or plinth.
Ventilation - Make sure that air flow around the
ventilation slots at the rear and underside of the mixer
is not obstructed. Keep these areas clear when flight
casing, installing or operating the mixer.
Note – Blocking or obstructing the ventilation slots
may cause damage to the mixer through overheating.
Qu-16 Rack Mount Option
A kit of parts is available from Allen &
Heath to mount the Qu-16 in a
standard 19” equipment case.
Rack kit part number QU-16-RK19
Minimum rack space required is 11U.
Note - Allow space for the connectors
and cables at the rear.
The rack ears can be fitted without
the need to remove the plastic side
trims. Simply secure them to the base
of the mixer with the 6x M4x8 screws
supplied (part number AB0332) using
a T20 Torx screwdriver.
Secure the mixer in the 19” rack with
8x M6 screws with plastic cup
washers to protect the mixer surface.
