You have no idea what I have to fit it:

AL-IIIs, wrapped in foam, bubble wrap & plastic, then a moving blanket (these things weight over 120 lbs each in modified form)
Sunfire TG-IV & 400x7
2 cd players
crossover
DAC
2 equalizers
85 lb/12" sub (huge)
clothes, etc.
soldering station & associated soldering stuff
150' of speaker cables
LOTS of interconnects
antique 100 lb anchor
leave room for 4 tube amps from the build
tools in case of truck issues (!)

Good judgment comes from experience,but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!
