Our take on the Sanus CFR1615

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

The Sanus CFR1615 stackable skeleton rack lets you customize storage for your component system. You can assemble the modular pieces in one of five different height combinations, depending on what you need. The braces are self-aligning so you can easily fit the rack together without special tools. Slots in the braces let you wall-mount the rack for a more permanent storage solution. The rack ships flat with removable shelves, blanking panels and hardware needed for assembly. (If you're planning to wall-mount this rack, check out Sanus' swivel support mount.)

Features

Steel Construction: The Sanus Component Series CFR1615 Skeleton Rack features welded, heavy-gauge steel construction.

Stackable Rack: The Sanus Component Series CFR1615's modular, stackable structure can be coupled into five different height combinations - 40U, 35U, 30U, 20U and 15U. 

Capacity: The Sanus CFR1615 can accommodate up to fifteen rack spaces (1.75" tall) or seven shelf components (3.5" tall). It can support up to 600 lbs of AV gear on the floor, or up to 200 lbs when mounted on the wall.

Quick Assembly: The rack is self-aligning and requires only four bolts for quick, easy assembly in approximately 15 minutes.

Leveling Feet: The CFR1615 comes with 4 feet that are threaded so you can level the component rack. An optional CA6CK caster kit, available from the manufacturer, includes 4 casters to enable you to roll the rack from place to place.

Wall-Mounting: This versatile rack can be mounted directly to wall studs for a more permanent organization solution in any room.

Optional Swing-Out Bracket: The Sanus CFA16SM-B1 (sold separately) is an optional swing out mount for Sanus Component 1600 Series Racks. This optional swivel accessory enables access to the back of these wall-mounted modular rack systems, so you can easily get to your components rear-panel connections. It allows your Sanus Component 1600 Series Rack to swivel effortlessly with a touch of the release tab, and locks securely when returned to home position against wall. The Sanus CFA16SM-B1 opens up to 90-degrees

Required Tools: The following tools are required when wall-mounting the rack system.

  • Stud finder
  • Level
  • Awl
  • Hammer
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Ratchet with 1/2" sockets (or 1/2" box wrench)
  • Drill with 7/32" bit for wood stud installations (3/8" bit for masonry)
  • Tape measure (ruler)

Built like a tank

Written By Windjammer, Seattle on Saturday, August 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I just wall mounted the rack with the optional swing out brackets. I have 160 lbs. of equipment and there is NO SAGGING at all. Not sure why the other reviewer said it did. Must not have installed it properly. Very pleased.
Pros:
Well built and easy to assemble.
Cons:
Needed and extra shelf and had to buy screws for it, hard to believe they couldn't include screws for a shelf that cost 70 bucks. Sanus, don't cheap out for 4 screws!

NICE RACK!!!

Written By Shazawn, Oak Harbor, WA on Wednesday, August 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I stacked the CFR1620 on this with the included hardware. Very solid combination. I got a ton of gear into this configuration. I did a more detailed review of the CFR racks on the 1620 as these both have the same characteristics, besides the fact that one is a lil shorter than the other ;)~
Pros:
CFR units are VERY sollid. As compact as my small closet needed. Crutchfield... Awesome as always. My go-to guys for AV and Car Audio. They may not carry EVERYTHING, butt I think they are trying :)~
Cons:
None really. Except, it gets pretty costly as you add all the rack accessories you WANT. I just started with accessories I felt I couldn't do without. I may add some of the bling accessories later.

Good quality finish, but flimsy if hanging

Written By Dave S, Malvern, PA on Thursday, January 31, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The assembly is simple. The quality of the product definitely met expectations. If I did not wall mount this I would give it 4 stars. When wall mounting with the wall swing out accessory the weight of 1 receiver caused the front of the unit to twist and become out of level. I ended up using angle iron to secure both top and bottom to reduce torsion. Sanus needs to provide better torsion support. Would not recommend for wall mounting.
