Thick metal, sturdy panel
KRNFL69WR, 22.08.2019
This panel is made of pretty much thick metal - it's enough, so it won't flex, or move.

Bought it for a bit different purpose than mounting in a rack - I've made a "patch panel" for a pedalboard from it. Paired it with neutrik lockable connectors. This also helped to get rid of some cable clutter across pedalboard, connecting your in and out, fx loop send and return, and sometimes trigger signals to act as a footswitch for the amp. Put a PowerCON connector there too, so setting up would take less time.

Does the job
21.02.2015
It's a good panel, it fits perfectly to the rack and takes the connectors very well too. A couple of niggles though ( and they are just niggles), there is a very slight flex in the panel when connecting stuff, mostly the middle sockets and it is very slight but there all the same, so not too sure how that will hold up over time. The other is depending on your ocd levels, it doesn't bother me but l did notice it , is that the two fixing holes for the screws are fractionally and l do mean factionally out so the sockets are pulling clockwise by a hair when fixed. Personally for the price l think this is a great panel and if the flexing doesn't become an issue six months down the line l'll happily come back and upgrade to five stars.

Not robust...
E H., 23.11.2015
It arrived already bent & twisted in the box, i was surprised that I could straighten it back into a useable shape by hand (yes, the metal is that flimsy!)... I'm not going to bother wiring it up as it won't survive long on the road in my job. May be ok for gentle home studio use I guess. First really bad item I've bought in years but since it's a cheapie, I'll just bin it... I've got steel versions of these elsewhere in the past that feel like they are 10x times stronger. Biggest annoyance is that I've wasted a week waiting for this. Avoid!

Used it on a couple of racks with positive results. Does what its suppose to do, metal seems of good quality and the paint is still spott on. Also, cheaper than the equivalent from other known brands.

Great construction
James Clayton, 04.01.2018
Brilliant build quality, just a little annoying it doesn't come with any screws as they don't come with any of the adapter fittings either. Make sure to get these as well!

Thon Rack Panel 1U 8XLR
James007, 11.06.2013
Simple well made rack panel. It's pretty sturdy and well finished. The pre drilled holes were accurately done so fitting was easy. These can be really handy as a break out on a rack case for monitor sends instead of having to get under the mixer and read the sockets. I use mine for the Speaker master out sockets as getting to the underside of my mixer in the rack is quite tough - so this makes it a lot quicker. It'll work with any standard socket - XLR, Jack, Speakon etc.

Good, sturdy panel
MyNicknameMustBeAtLeastFiveCharactersLong, 31.08.2021
Thon is good company, producing nicely priced gear of good quality.
This panel makes no exception from this rule.

I removed one star, because the screw holes are drilled slightly off the axis. That makes all sockets slightly "skewed" (not perpendicular to the panel). And that hurts visually.
They go more / / / / than



.
(that was graphical representation of my above sentence)

Other than that - very good, robust product.

Practical but a little negative on the estetics
Fats, 28.03.2014
Rack panel does what you expect but in my case putting the Neutric XLR males and females in, noticed that the squares form of the XLR's can not be set completely vertical.as the pre-drilled holes in the panel for the screws are a little out of position

Good quality but the M3 holes are slightly off angle
thelxman, 13.11.2014
Good quality metal with edge folds for rigidity. Assembled some custom rack panels with these and Neutrik connectors but found that the M3 holes in this panel were slightly rotated from the angle required to get the connector square to the edge - the same on 3 of these panels. Also the D25 is slightly low to the bottom fold to get a nut spinner in there for tightening the nut, which risks deforming the hex slot in an M3 hex countersunk bolt.

Rack panel
And.M., 04.01.2018
Sturdy, cheap (only in price) and does what it's supposed to do. And the mounting holes are precise, unlike some other brands. Using this to connect the back of my live rack to venues' setups, and it works like a charm. Be careful what screws you use to mount the connectors, some tend to strip the hole. All in all, very recommended.

rack panel
Shaun H., 20.04.2014
This rack panel is being used for the distribution of my amplifer rack, the rack will be hard wired to this pannel, XLR female and speakon sockets will be used for this, the xlr sockets will be hard wired to the amps and the the output of the amps will be hard wired to the speakon sockets which from there will go to the cabinets/speakers,

the panel is the right price and very good quality,

1U rack panel
Ian2268, 30.10.2014
Great quality
As it has the return along the length of it, it is significantly more rigid than the type which are just flat metal. The flat type always flex an awful lot when you use them
