I've recently taken delivery of a PB10-ISD and am looking to sit a BFD somewhere in my hi-fi stand (a 4-shelf Sound Organisation model). I see from the pics of it that it has 'ears' for rack-mounting which I'm obviously unable to use. I have two questions: i) My hi-fi rack has 45.5cm between it's support pillars on either side, but the official specs show width of the unit as 48.5cm which I assume includes the ears. How big is the main body of the unit behind the ears? ii) Can the ears be taken off? Assuming the width of the body is ok my rack can easily fit the unit as the pillars are set towards the middle of the stand, but it'd look nicer without them. Many thanks in advance!!
