My house needs a centralized location for data connections including cat 5e/6, HDMI, three channel RCA, unbalanced speaker wire (connector type uncertain), and F-type coaxial. I'm building a simple 4U rack and installing in a centralized location in the basement. All lines will come to one of two patch panels: the first for ethernet, the second for everything else.
As an extra challenge, I'd like to come up with a basic design for this than I can also use for stackable/portable modular synth cases.
Old 1U 24 port cat5e patch panel
salvaged from my work (will update brand later)
New 1u 24 port keystone patch panel
1/2in 2ft x 4ft plywood
so the front can swing open for easy changes - this is a big maybe; also, not sure what kind: piano vs door?
1 pair 4u rack rails, 11 gauge steel, 10-32 holes (off the shelf)
