  1. Thanks Sheriton, I'll bear that in mind. Other than esthetics there is no reason for the rack to face front so I could just as well turn it around and have the antenna's face the stage. I realize I'm making a lot of fuzz about an inch of space here, but I'm on a mission of creating a PA setup that will fit in the back of my SUV along with my kb gear. Compact is king here. The set is intended for small rooms and even smaller stages, so I don't anticipate major issues with reception or interference but we will see. Anyway, I appreciate the support. I've been using wireless equipment forever in ignorant bliss, never having any issues (except for the one time when I started using the XD-V75 and found out the hard way that channel management becomes a thing when using a mixer and a mic both operating on 2.4 Ghz.). Under the circumstances it may be a while before I truly get to experiment with a full setup, but I'll mark the warning and pray I'll remember when the time comes.
  2. The verdict from Line 6 Support: Now as for the antenna issue, I will simply drill some holes in a blanking plate and mount that on the BACK of my rack. Seems to me that should resolve the issue. More good news, I used the picture below to ask the guy from Graig's List to go through his junk drawer and sure enough he found it. Also the sun is shining and there is a touch of spring in the air.
  3. The antenna argument from Thomann makes no sense anyway. When installed in the back, the rabbit ears would be neatly in line, whereas when installed in front they would be paired on top of each other (unless you choose to alternate the short and long rack ears, but that only works until you introduce a third tier).
  4. First attempt: Thomann. Reply: when installing the receiver of the XD-V 75 in a 19" rack, the antennas must be replaced to the frontside of the rack, to have best connection to the receiver. When two receivers are installed on one unit, you don´t have space to replace the antennas. This is also the reason why there is no solution available, to mount two receivers in one singe unit. *grumble*
  5. Thanks guys. I bought both my units off of "Graig's List" and they came without any connector rail, but now I know what to look for.
  6. Hi, new member here. Just realized as I was signing up that I own quite a bit of Line6-gear so I suppose it's about time. However, the reason for joining is this silly question. I just received a 2nd XD-V75 unit. Yay! Somehow I did not expect that mounting it next to my first unit would be an issue....but it is. Is there really no way to mount 2 XD's side by side or do I have to buy a bigger rack to facilitate the extra unit? Fun fact, I had a prior shock when I bought an extra 'short ear' to mount my XD in a 9.5" flight case. Spoiler alert: Didn't fit.
