    Are you getting yours fully assembled/painted or in kit form? I left Kray completely alone for a about a month..don't wanna bother the man too much I'd say...can't rush perfection either. ;)
    see i didnt even know about that. now that i do, i have another question. Can he assemble certain parts that require gluing? if so does it cost extra? and how much?

    Depending on how your going to construct/built it might be possible but, I'm not sure how. The cab is 2 major pieces when done, the CP and the stand/legs. Also how does gluing help, there are many other time sensitive tasks involved with construction.

    Ask Kray, the designer/masterbuilder would know best. : D

    OK. Last update for a while.

    I installed the amp, power supply, and speakers. Have a look:

    Man! that cabinet is sweet!
    i can't wait till i get myn! i think i'll do the same Black setup you got going but paint the cabinet Red like the Vewlix cabinets i seen in japan, i dont really like the 2 buttons on the side of the joystick tho, i think im going to have Kray put them on the side of the control panel like the other cabinet he has, Im also wondering if the postioning of the joystick and the layout of the buttons are the same as the TE madcatz, anyone know?

    Hi Guys,

    I have just purchased a Kray V4 cab on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260936299911#ht_755wt_1396) and need some help. It needs a TV screen fitted but how is this done? How do i secure a screen into the cab?

    Also does the control panel only secure in with the 2 hinges?

    Many thanks

    Man you got a great deal! The recommended screen is the LG 32LD350...but pretty much any 32" LCD will do. The .pdf instruction manual for the Kraylix will tell you how to mount the screen...tell the seller to email it to you.

    Congrats on your cab BOOM! Any 32" HDTV will work. Mine [Sony] has a shallow bezel, so I had to prop it up to get it at the right height for the frame. Adjusting [screwing in] the right angle brackets will hold the TV easily in place. The control panel is held down by 2 heavy duty hinges. Think: flight case. They are very strong. But be careful, hold or have someone else hold the CP, while unhooking. It can flop down under its own weight.

    Hi Everyone,

    Sorry to just dive in with a question but I'm really interested in a "Kraylix" (most likely hitched to a PS3) but am not sure how terrified to be of the wiring challenge. I'm strong with certain kinds of electronics such as home theaters but I'm not sure how much tougher this will be. I've tried to sift through the 18 pages here but can't seem to find some "square 1" guidance on what materials and steps I need to do the wiring I described. If it matters, this will be a 2-player setup.

    Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks so much!!!

    if you have skills with home theatre wiring...you shouldn't have any problem with the Kraylix build. Your essential building an entertainment system in one box. There are several ways to wire every component that may be included. Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    Thanks for the quick reply. The connections between the buttons/joystick and PS3 are the biggest mystery to me. Is there some sort of ready-made harness to tie those buttons, etc. to the PS3 controller port? (I'm guessing not!). If I have to run wires off all those controllers, how exactly do I tie them in to the game console? Do I have to actually open up the PS3 to do something to the boards? Sorry to start at such a basic level, but that's where I am!... Any help appreciated...

    Hello Kray. I was wondering about possible custom work. My place is fairly small, and I can't fit another cab in here (at least not with a straight face). I love your KLX Stand, and could really use a variant of it in my condo. Would it be possible to get a KLX Stand with the following modifications:
    • as wide as v4 2 player cab
    • modular control panels (1 with a v4 2 player layout; 1 with no lever/button holes; identical form factors)
    This would be my ultimate game station. Not only could the 360, PS3, and PC hide inside the stand.... But all three could use the same control panel if wired as PS2 controllers. When I need to work, the game station would transform into a desk via the blank CP.
    Thanks for having a badass hobby!

    To be honest that sounds like a great idea Kray should definitely try something like this!

    Here is an update to my cab. I posted this cab awhile back with the TE's. I had pre ordered 2 PS360 PCB's from Focus Attack about 10 months ago, but just got sick and tired of waiting, so I just gutted my TE's and installed into the CP. I'm willing to sell the shells for the TE's if anyone is interested. I have 12 Seimitsu smoke snap in buttons too if anyone is interested. I'll probably end up wanting to get rid of these Seimitsu screw in buttons and joystick I have on the CP also. I realized that there is nothing like the feel of Sanwa, IMO. Hit me up.

    These are Round 2 TE's with a black acrylic plexi from Art's Hobbies. I disposed of the original art/plexi. No buttons, and no joystick, but did leave the mounting plate. Everything was well takin care of too. What do you guys think would be a fair asking price for these gutted TE shells? They were not heavily used either, so they still look new and fresh. The holes on the bottom plate are were drilled to widen them out for mounting though. ALSO LOOKING TO GET RID OF THE V3 TE CONTROL PANEL IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED. I have no need for it anymore.

    Curious can you fit a computer tower and a 360 at the same time in one of these?
  • El VietnamTomEl VietnamTom Street FIghter Junkie Joined: Posts: 18
    Yeah, I was able to fit my tower along with my 360. The tower was kind of a pain in the ass to get in though.

    how tall was the tower?
  • El VietnamTomEl VietnamTom Street FIghter Junkie Joined: Posts: 18
    It was a standard size tower I used for a build last year. I was actually thinking about getting one of those slim/compact designs from dell just to save space. That new Alienware x51 looks nice. It's the same size of the ps3/360, and pretty damn powerful too for its size. I just don't know if I want to shell out more cash anytime soon though. Check it out.

    Hey guys,

    I am looking to get a v4 2 player cabinet but I am torn between painting it myself or having Kray paint it for me. To anyone who has received one and painted it themselves, what kind of paint did you use and what was the process like (ie. did you have to sand, prime, then paint or just paint no sanding involved, etc.)? Thanks in advance for your responses.
  • rcaidorcaido Dynamic Bayside Duo Joined: Posts: 8,438
    If you can afford it & want a professional looking cabinet then definitely go with Kray painting it for you...He does an amazing job!

    If you planning to do this yourself, there is quite a lot of stuff to do...I did it myself & was lots of trial & error...Also weather was a big factor for me...Despite not having the best looking cab, im still quite happy of the results. You will need to do lots n lots of sanding...But if you look thru this thread lots of amazing cabs which a majority did themselves...

    Kray said my slims are ready to go tomorrow. Cant wait for it!

    thanks for the quick reply. what kind of paint did you use? was it just regular spray paint or something special/unique? thanks again for the help. I would love to go with having Kray paint it for me but the cost for that is a bit out of my range. i have done some wood/paint work myself but never worked with MDF. I figured the money that I would spend on getting it painted I can use to purchase my buttons, joysticks, ps360 pcb, and paint/supplies. I just wish there was a thread/partial guide to painting the cabinet on your own.

    Would anyone happen to know where I can get the marquee and control panel art that Dirty-D used. He had emailed it to another user or 2 who was sharing it but that was awhile back and as we all know megaupload is no longer up. It's the art in post #508 on page 11 or you can just follow this link.

    I tried to catch up with him a while ago. His classical design is AMAZING! I was never able reach him. His website email he must not check and I haven't seen him here in some time. Let me know if you make contact with him. I'd also like to use this template. I have another custom one designed by d3v.

    Just got done messing around with what I want to do as far as Cabinet art is concerned. I have 2 final versions to choose from so tell me what you think of them. The marquee and movelist are final, it's the control panel I am undecided on. Thanks for the feedback.
