MG16/6FX rackmount

Unread post by tpatterson »

I'm looking for rackmount ears for my Yamaha MG16/6FX console. I purchased it used, and it did not have the ears with it. Will the RK1 or RK5014 kits work for this console? Or if not, is there a place I can order the original or universal ears that fit? I've googled until my fingers turn blue but can't seem to find anything that confirms these available kits will or won't work. Thank you all in advance for your help!

Hi tpatterson - and welcome to the Forums . . . .

According to the Manual, Page 27, the rack ears are supplied, but are delivered in a "Parked" state and just need removing

and re-attaching in the correct position - to give you the "Ears" . . .

Are you sure they are not there?

Very remiss (and pointless) for the seller NOT to have replaced them prior to selling. :?

Unfortunately, the Manual does NOT mention the Part Nos. of the Ears - but I'm sure Yamaha MUST know it?
