I'm seeking ideas or designs for a small "Cabinet" to house Mac Mini & External Drives (For Backups) that I can keep right in my 1 room studio. I was considering running cables into an adjacent room but decided against this because I would need Firewire extenders (going beyond 15'), extended display monitor cables, extended USB, etc.

I think a cabinet is more practical and could be fairly small.

The drives and Mac Mini are not very loud and I would probably need minimal decoupling and absorbtion.

Has anyone done this and if so, can you share your experience and advice?

Thanks.

Somewhere on the forum Glenn posted a design for a silencer box for his computer. You could probably modify that for your hard disks. Not sure where that is, though: you'd have to search for it...

Thank you Stuart. I'll do a search for that.

Update: Did a search under username: gullfo for terms "silencer" & "computer" and found nothing related to a silencer box for a computer. I'll keep looking.
