    Question Recommendations for cable transportation?

    Hi all - I'm starting to get to a point between the power, audio, and DMX cables that warrants a better solution than random plastic totes. Any particularly-good storage/organizer solutions you've found for your cables?

    Currently....still totes here.

    When I had more packspace, I used workboxes like this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-...FYNUAQodpkID1Q

    Something like this is the next progression: https://www.skbcases.com/music/produ...fset=&c=124&s=

    I would look for (Or build one yourself.) something like this.

    I should mention space is a premium - so that big rack of spindles isn't going to be an option - I'm really trying to avoid buying another vehicle just for DJing, but I'm filling up our Honda Pilot to breaking point. I was looking for something more with separators so that I wouldn't have to do as much digging. Maybe I'll stick with plastic totes for general storage and look at getting something like this to store what I primarily use for my gigs. https://www.amazon.com/Cable-File-Ba.../dp/B00BJ8Q49S

    I don't have an answer for you, but if your pilot is setup for towing, you could just get a cargo trailer.

    Very true... I keep forgetting about that as an alternative... knowing my driving skills it's a dangerous prospect though xD.. and man for some reason knowing having that gear sitting back there for some reason would make me so nervous!

    This is what I did and works great. 2 gigs and all my cables are organized. All the bags go in a tote.
