The frame can be divided using spacers for vertical frames in any desired way. Three 2U modules or a 4U- and a 2U module can be installed one above each other using spacers. The frame is compatible with all ToolMod modules. The installation of up to 33 2U modules is possible.

ToolMod 6U-high frame
Front View of the ToolMod 6U-high frame
The 6U high ToolMod frame is best suited for very extensive ToolMod Pro Audio systems. It offers enough space for all kinds of modules and for all applications. 2U and 4U modules can be installed above each other using spacers. Three 2U modules can be installed in any of the 11 compartments using spacers for vertical frames that are available for any number of compartments. The modules are installed vertically. This results in a clear layout when the 6U-high frame is used for a combination of mic-pre's and eq's or eq's and dynamics. The 6U-high frame is less expensive than the combination of a 4U-high frame and a 2U-high frame.

Module Compartments
Rear View The 6U high frame has 11 module compartments. The maximum capacity of the 6U high frame is 33 2U modules. All necessary connectors are installed. Each of the compartments can be divided to hold any mix of 2U and 4U mono or stereo modules using spacers. The picture shows a spacer for 3 compartments. Spacers are available for to 11 compartments.

knurled Screws for 4U-high ToolMod Frames

The modules are fixed with knurled screws that are used as handle when removing or installing modules. Knurled screws and blind panels are available as Accessories.

Module Versions
The 6U high ToolMod frames are designed for modules with vertical faceplates. The only difference between horizontal and vertical modules is the orientation of the lettering and the control knobs. Modules with horizontal faceplates can be installed and are fully functional. The lettering is simply rotated in this case. Please have a look at the pictures of the horizontal and vertical versions of the TM204 4-Band Stereo Mastering EQ in the right column.

Rear View

There is no difference between the 6U high, the 4U-high, and the 2U high frame as far as the connectors are concerned. The four audio connectors for each of the 33 module compartments are installed on the rear panel of the 6U high frame. Since each of the 11 module slots can also be used for up tp three 2U modules, one above each other; there are 33 connector sets in total. The female XLR connectors are usually used as audio inputs, while the male XLR connectors are used for outputs. The use of the two additional TRS connectors depends on the module. With 2U stereo modules, the input and output of the right stereo channel are available on the TRS connectors. The connector assignment of a particular module can be found on the module web pages. Here is the assignment of the Connectors of the Stereo Mastering Equalizer TM205 as an example.

The female and the male 5-pin XLR connector for the power supply are internally connected in parallel. These connectors are identical in all ToolMod frames and the other Tool units by adt-audio. The power supply system uses the 'daisy chain' principle; power is connected from frame to frame. Information in detail on the power supply units can be found on the ToolPwr Power Supply Units web pages.
