mounted in-wall

The Sanus SA809 hides your smaller A/V gear in your wall behind a mounted TV and holds the Sanus SA206 EcoSystem Mini surge protector (sold separately).

Hide smaller A/V gear in-wall, behind your mounted TV

Your TV setup might include small A/V components, like network streaming devices and IR repeaters. But where do you put them if you want to mount that TV on your wall? The Sanus SA808 is a small cabinet that can be installed inside your drywall and hides your components behind your mounted TV, keeping the system clean and neat. It fits behind the wall plate of most large TV wall-mounts.

The SA809 can hold up to 30 pounds, and includes elastic hook-and-loop straps to keep them secure. The straps also help keep your cables neat and organized.  There are openings on the bottom for your electrical or cable outlets, and a supplied mounting bracket will hold a Sanus SA206 EcoSystem™ Mini surge protector (sold separately).

Note: For AC and cable outlets, installation by a licensed electrician is recommended.

Good idea, still needs a little work

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought with SA206 power ecosystem mini. I like that the box is preset to accept the power unit. Plenty of space to mount several components. Make the wiring nice and neat. Rim is a little large to work with Sanus wall mount that I have.

Pros: Keeps everything nice and neat.

Cons: Had to cut part of the rim to use my wall mount.

Product Research


Recessed Component Box: The Sanus SA809 large recessed component box was specially designed for use with the SA206 SANUS EcoSystem Mini (sold separately) for an additional power source. Its space-saving design keeps components and cables neat, making it perfect for use with wall-mounted TVs. Includes three AC outlet spaces to allow power to be integrated and cables to be concealed as well as an elastic strap for holding and organizing up to six small components. A removable component panel allows component organizing before and after installation.

ECO-Mini Bracket Compatible: The SA809 recessed component box features a "knock-out" opening and comes with a mounting to bracket to install the Sanus ECO-Mini bracket (051SA206, sold separately).

AC Outlet Box Compatible: The SA809 also includes three other "knock-out" openings which allow the installation of up to three UL listed 120 VAC electrical outlet boxes (sold separately).

Security Straps: The two included elastic straps are used to attach and secure components inside the housing.

Applications: The SA809 can be installed behind most large wall plates of wall-mounts or underneath or above most small wall plates. To access the SA809 after installation, disconnect all cables and wires from the TV, then either slide or remove the arm or TV mount from the wall plate.

Mounting: The recessed component box must be mounted between studs that are at least 16" apart; drywall covering the wall must not exceed 5/8". After installation there will not be enough space between the SA809 and the studs for electrical wires/cables, plumbing, ductwork, or insulation.

  • Stud-finder
  • Level
  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil
  • Drywall Saw
  • Phillips-head screwdriver


  • Exterior: 16.625" (w) x 11.4375" (h) x 4.0625" (d)
