DNX408 Receiver Fitment

Filed under: News,Tricks and Tips — Tags: , — Stuart @ 8:52 am

150wideTTTThe DNX408 receiver box is tight on space so getting your receiver and wires in there without issues can be tricky.  Taking the approach of simply bundling the wires in without care for how it looks can be counter productive as you run the risk of a stray wire getting trapped or simply not being able to fit everything in!

Some receivers won’t fit no matter how much you try – but thankfully most modern receivers will go in.  Test fit the receiver for the best orientation and don’t forget to test-fit the lid of the receiver box.

A tip some of our team drivers use is to bundle the wires and heat-shrink them so they stay together.  You can get heat shrink tubing in various sizes but if you don’t have something big enough to stretch over your bundle of wires you can carefully stretch it using some long nosed pliars – it will still shrink down properly.

Lay the receiver and wires in the box and fill any spaces around the receiver with foam – this will help isolate the receiver from vibrations and potentially soak up any water that manages to enter the box.
