Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Solid manufacturing that fits the Sanus rack purrfectly. Holds its rated weight fine, butt, anymore than that causes some flex. For example: do not try to put a 78 lb mono-block amp on this shelf... Get the next size up ;)~
Well built. Nice finish. The moe shelves the better!
A lil pricey for a piece of bent steel.

What is the weight limit? [ Amy  Jul 15, 2014 ]

  • Hi Amy, I have a 30 lb. receiver on my shelf and the shelf is solid, sturdy and so far has not bent. These shelves are very durable and good quality. My advice to you is if you have a large/heavy component, buy the two-component shelf and leave everything else to the one-component shelf. I would and am buying two more of these shelves. [ LAURENCE   Jul 16, 2014 ]
  • There are three weight capacities. Single unit shelf mounting height 30lbs Double unit shelf mounting height 50lbs Triple unit shelf mounting height 80lbs These specs can be found in the Sanus manufacturers description of the cabinets they come in. [ Bobby   Jul 15, 2014 ]
  • I just purchased the self and rack system back in May and can't be happier. Each self can hold roughly 30lbs. I believe the whole unit (5 shelves in my case) can hold 250lbs. It is really easy to assemble, has high quality parts and really looks like a pro set up. I hope this helps! [ Shawn   Jul 15, 2014 ]
