Thoughtful audio/video design

The tower cabinet holds up to five components inside, and you can adjust the height of the shelves to fit most components. Wire channels let you neatly route your system's cables.

Ventilation ports keep your gear running cool, even with the cabinet's door closed. The removable back panel also has a dedicated vent where you can install an internal fan for additional cooling. Hidden wheels let you easily move the cabinet away from the wall for cleaning or hooking up a new component.

Overview: The MIRAGE AV TOWER (8222) is an attractive addition when used with the MIRAGE TV Cabinet (8227) or on its own. A reversible IR-friendly grey tinted glass door conceals five adjustable shelf compartments, allowing the cabinet to be customized to fit components of almost any size. Ventilation slots in the base, shelves and removable back panel allow cooler air to enter from the bottom while hot air flows out of the rear of the cabinet. There is a dedicated vent in the back panel where you can install an internal fan (up to 3.15" square) for additional heat exhaustion. Concealed wheels allow the tower to be rolled for easy access to the back of components, and integrated cable management keeps everything in order.

Tempered Glass Shelves and Door: The MIRAGE AV Tower's glass shelves and doors are virtually shatterproof, allowing you to use them for them even your bulkiest of components. The glass door is also IR-friendly so you can use your components' remotes to operate your equipment even with the door closed.

Adjustable Shelves: The MIRAGE 8222 features 4 adjustable shelves and one fixed bottom and top shelf. The adjustable shelves allow you configure your system to accommodate larger components. Each adjustable shelf can support up to 50 lbs, while the fixed bottom shelf will support up to 75 lbs. The cabinet's top shelf will support up to 50 lbs. The interior cabinet's dimensions measure 20.5" wide x 35" tall x 19.75" deep.

Ventilation: The stand's lower cabinet feature's floor-through ventilation to promote air flow and to keep your equipment running cool, prolonging your components' life.

Wire Management: The stand features an integrated wire management system to keep your system's wires and cords neat, organized and out of sight.

Hidden Wheels: Hidden wheels make adding a component or changing a connection easy. Even when the stand is fully loaded, you can move your system away from the wall fro easy access to cables and connections.

Levelers: There are adjustable levelers on the bottom of the cabinet, which may be adjusted to allow the stand to rest flat on your home's floor.
