Store up to 12 components

The cabinet features three compartments for your components, each with an adjustable shelf. The left and right side compartments are each wide enough for a standard-sized component. The middle compartment is 38" wide, and each shelf can comfortably fit two components side by side.

Concealed ventilation slots keep your gear running cool, even with the doors closed. Hidden wheels built into the steel frame let you easily move the cabinet away from the wall for cleaning your system or hooking up a new component.

This is the best piece of audio furniture I have ever purchased. It is beautiful and functional. You can adjust the shelves and fit an extremely large center speaker in the center portion. And it is very easy to put together. Worth the money.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been looking for a media center for quite a while for man cave 2.0 and stumbled upon BDI. After putting my eyes on the actual product in-store I decided on the white oak finish. Order arrived within seven days, well packaged, with no damage. The finish exceeded my expectations. While I'm not a fan of pressboard, the type used is thick and well made. Love the cable managment, routing options and hardwood friendly wheels. Tons to vents to keep things cool!

Pros: Wheels, cable management, build quality... A piece that will turn heads!

Cons: A little pricey, but you get a well designed piece that will last a long time.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Couldn't be happier with purchase of BDI Corridor 8179. It fits perfectly in my house with it's functional design as well as aesthetic appeal. I love the retro modern design. It was easy to put together with everything you need in the box.

Pros: Easy to put together Looks Functional design

Cons:

Corridor details

Written by: Bob from Upstate, NY on December 8, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just providing more accurate details on this product. The Corridor stands 28.25" inches tall, not the 17.25" listed in the details tab here. Also, I've learned that there is no inventory kept on this item. They're built to order, so plan well in advance.

Pros: Appears to be a well thought out design from an audio gear practicality viewpoint.

Cons: I find it strange that this unit has been on the market for over a year and the only images available from BDI are 3D illustrations. For a product that is largely sold via online retailers, actual product photos would certainly help buyers make more informed decisions.

Well made and functional

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This audio/video cabinet arrived undamaged in 13 days from order. The fit and chocolate walnut finish of this unit are exceptional as is the attention to detail. The old adage about "you get what you pay for" applies to this cabinet.

Pros: This unit hides all my components, but the louvered doors allow remote control access with the doors closed. The rubber wheels allow the unit to be easily moved away from the wall for rear access.

Cons: The hinge diagram in the BDI documentation does not match the ones on my unit. I was still able to perform adjustments after some trial and error.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Arrived in one box almost fully assembled, very sleek and practical. Large compartments to accommodate all of our AV components, including a large Center speaker in the middle compartment, very well made of high quality materials, lots of ventilation and easy access back, wheels are available for easy moving. Worth the price.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Stunning, sleek with fine lines. Hides all the clutter of wires and cables. Extremely well vented cabinet. Easy access back panels. Beautiful walnut slatted front, soft-close hinged doors, and adjustable shelves. This was a pricey item but the quality craftsmanship throughout tells me I got what I paid for.

My center channel speaker is 22x13x9 and fits just fine. Doors shut completely and the sound isn't impaired at all. [ troy  Apr 02, 2016 ]
Yes! I tried the center speaker both inside and outside the cabinet and with the doors open and closed. I could discern no difference in sound quality in either case. I use it exclusively with the doors closed. [ Richard  Apr 01, 2016 ]
Yes. That is where our center lives now. (Of course it depends on the size of your center, so take measurements first. As far as the sound goes, it isn't noticeable to anyone in my home. For us the aesthetics easily outweigh any impairment to sound that might be taking place.) [ John  Apr 01, 2016 ]
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy  May 05, 2014 ]  Staff
