Our take on the BDI Corridor 8179

by Ralph Graves

Stylish home for a large home theater system

BDI Corridor 8179 quad width cabinet

The double-wide center compartment has plenty of room for components and a center channel speaker.

The BDI Corridor 8179 was designed to hold your large flat-panel TV and all its attendant home theater components — and to do it with style. This retro-modern cabinet features louvered doors made of solid walnut, and a durable, micro-etched glass cabinet top. The Corridor 8179 can supports a flat-panel TV with a screen size of up to 85" and weighing up to 175 lbs.

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.

Well made and functional

Written By Rick, Spokane, WA on Wednesday, May 28, 2014
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.
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.
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.

Sleek and practical

Written By AGirgis, Houston, TX on Saturday, January 25, 2014
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.

BDI Corridor AV console

Written By Vince S, Bay Area, CA on Thursday, December 19, 2013
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.

Is the center shelf adjustable? If not, how many inches are above and below that shelf? Thanks very much. [ Harry  May 03, 2014 ]
