Product Features
  • General Information
    • This enclosure was designed for controllers and projects that are too confined or just too large for the CG-1500 enclosure. This enclosure has:
      • Increased Depth - Allows up to 4 vertical power supplies to be mounted into a single enclosure
      • Increased Height - Allow for more space at the base of the controller for newer, larger controllers
    • Designed for outdoor use with full UV protection incorporated into the plastic
    • Extremely durable due to the use of a polycarbonate material. This enclosure is 140% stronger than the material used in the CG-1500 enclosure
    • The UL listed plastic resin also incorporates the highest rated UL94, 5VA fire resistant material
  • Features
    • Flat top (compared to the ribbed top on the CG-1500) allows for application of labels.
    • Easier storage - Since the enclosure is flat on the top and bottom, stacking enclosures during storage is easier than the CG-1500
    • Available in open and closed bottoms:
      • Open (this listing page) - Allows the use of a bottom end closure that is removable, making repairs or other changes to the controller easier. Also allows for pre-cut holes for clamps, CAT5 cables and power wires - see our list of custom mounting solutions here.
      • Closed (this listing page) - This solution is similar to the CG-1500 which has not pre-drilled holes. Designed for DIY applications.

3 of 5 Like the size... But, April 26, 2019
Reviewer: Ed Faranda from Lakewood, CA United States  
I like the size of the enclosure, but it is very brittle and breaks easily.  I just had it a few days and the hinges on the door broke, now I only have the bottom hinge and it is cracked and about to come off.  Probably won't buy it again and will replace it next year with two CG-1500's.  I wanted the extra size to put in two power supplies.
---- HOLIDAYCORO RESPONSE ----
We are sorry about the issue experienced with this enclosure lid cracking.  We identified this issue and have made a revision to the design of the lid and as of 2019, all lids feature this new lid to prevent this from happening again in the future.  We have a replacement lid going out to you at no cost.

5 of 5 Needed even more February 4, 2019
Reviewer: Ron Boyd from Knoxville, TN United States  
This holiday lighting community has needed an enclosure with more room. This is the answer. David created something that has been needed for awhile with this box. This can even be used with a double decker configuration with PS on bottom and controllers on top. There's a ton more space over the one used for so many years. Yes, it's a bit more expensive, but it's well worth the money.

5 of 5 Impressive Enclosure System December 31, 2018
Reviewer: Ken Iverson from Seattle, WA United States  
As I'm working on adding more RGB to my display, it appears I'm going to need to add more and more controllers.  This enclosure system will allow me to place two controllers and power supplies into one box.  Great!  I I just love the adapter plate that allows for CAT5 dongles which allow me to plug into the exterior.  Brillant!
