The original AmpShell™ gets an update, Gen2! Now with an updated mounting system, USB outlets, and available in new colors. Like the original though, this has the standard UV & weather resistant housing that allows you to install your Sonos Amp or other devices outside where its convenient to your system design. 

Designed specifically to work with Sonos Amp, it also works with many other popular products as well! Using the new improved ultra-flexible 57 Slot mounting system, just strap your devices to the backplate with the included Velcro, connect it to the built-in outlets, and your ready to go.

The AmpShell is designed to be surface mounted in a shady spot behind your landscaping or on any structure, featuring a thermostat controlled fan for active airflow on those hot days. Simply mount with the included hardware and connect to your nearby protected outlet. We have even included a ground lug for direct connection to earth.

Available in Tan, Grey, Black, or Green

      * This unit does not cool or heat your device, it only provides airflow. We recommend not operating your device when the ambient air temp is within +/-5° of the safe max operating temp of your device. Also note that black enclosure will heat up faster and retain heat longer in direct sun applications.

      ** Maximum Inner Dimensions do not account for space taken up by built-in outlets, fans, wiring, and nessacary room for proper airflow. See usable space document for more details about device fit.

      This is in no way a comprehensive list, it is only for the most common products used to date. Please refer to our documentation for usable dimensions to determine if your item will fit. We will update this page as additional compatibility is determined.

      All Terrapin brand products are made to order, first come first serve, and currently have a lead time of approximately 7-14 days from the time you order till the item ships.

      This lead time may vary, but it is the most accurate answer we can give you until your order is finished. We do not offer expedited service at this time.

      Pre-Order availability means we are currently out of stock of 1 or more parts needed to build this product and are awaiting a resupply. Expect a 15-30 day lead time in this case.

      Delays due to supply shortages, due to the ongoing world-wide supply chain issues, could extend order lead times without notice. This is beyond our control.

      Your payment method will be charged immediately upon checkout regardless of status of product.

      Finish Disclaimer - The finish on some of our Shells are prone to showing handling marks, some colors make this more obvious than others. Please understand that A) The black finish will show fingerprints and imperfections way more than any other color, this is not considered a defect or damage. B) Our enclosures do NOT actively COOL your devices, they ventilate. Let's all remember science class... Black absorbs and retains heat more than any other color, so if your application is in direct sun we do not recommend Black.
