Room for 4-5 components

The sturdy cabinet top can support a TV up to 55” and weighing up to 100 lbs. The cabinet's open compartment is ideal for a center channel speaker, sound bar, or component.

Both lower compartments have an adjustable shelf, letting them each store two components. Glass panel doors hide your components, while allowing IR signals from your remote to pass through.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am very happy with my purchase. Cabinet arrived in perfect condition. This is a high quality, heavy duty piece of furniture. Interior has a lot of space for components. Many cabinets on the market are not deep enough; no problems here. Remotes do work with doors closed. Set my cabinet on sliders for ease of movement. Item arrived on a pallet. Be aware that delivery company no longer delivers to your doorway. They delivered at the street/end of my driveway, but did supply a pallet jack.

Pros: Cabinet quality. Storage space. Style/design. Condition at delivery. Crutchfield service.

Cons: Delivery at street/end of driveway.

Beautiful and quality media cabinet. Very happy with our purchase!

Pros: Very well made. Perfect for our quality components because of ventilation and access to the back via sliding doors.

Cons: None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

GREAT, great product! Don't consider anything else. I first shopped around at the local furniture stores for something stylish (nod to my wife) but everything there was just ugly or stylish and junky. This has it all - great looks, ventilation grids on the bottom shelves, cable port in the divider, and sliding panels in the back for easy component access. And it's SOLID. My turntable sits on top, and it's not budging. :) Best of all, I paid the same price for this as what the other places were charging for junk. You can't go wrong with this.

This a beautiful piece of furniture. It is well made and very functional. Love the wire management abilities. The support from Crutchfield was fantastic! The unit arrive with shipping damage to the top surface. I called and received prompt help. In a few days I have a new top. Unfortunately it arrived damage also so Crutchfield sent another. Great customer service!! Thank You Donna!!

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I have been looking for a tv cabinet 45" to 50" wide and at least 30" tall for over a year. Many of the smaller cabinets on the market look cheap and are not deep enough for my components. The interior/exterior dimensions, ventilation and sliding rear doors sold me on this unit and it looks solid. Wish manufacturers would put casters on their cabinets. I purchased a tv and tv stand from Crutchfield previously and was pleased with my purchase. [ Susan  Dec 14, 2018 ]
It comes mostly assembled, has the features I need, is reasonably priced, and looks good. [ Craig T.  Sep 12, 2018 ]
a friend of mine bought crutchfield over a decade ago and loved you guys [ henry  May 11, 2018 ]
To house my home theatre electronics, but most importantly to house the center channel speaker directly under my TV. [ WESLEY L  Jan 08, 2018 ]
I want to tidy up all my stereo and TV in one attractive package and clean up the power cord [ PAUL A  Jan 01, 2018 ]

2 questions already asked

Yeah totally. No need to open the door [ Quocchuong John  Sep 09, 2018 ]
Mine works fine I think it's designed for that and yes it works well with the doors closedEnter an answer to this question. [ henry  Aug 18, 2018 ]
My sons wireless xbox controls work through the doors. But my stuff that I use a remote for I have on top. [ Patrick  Aug 18, 2018 ]
Totally [ Quocchuong John  Aug 18, 2018 ]
Some remotes have a stronger signal, so it's hard to say, but my experience with this cabinet is that it does. It would help if you keep the unit as close to the glass as possible and direct the remote to the unit instead of the TV. I think you will fine. [ Niles  Aug 18, 2018 ]
Yes it will. If the remote transmits the signal by IR, the beam still passes through the glass. RF signals have no trouble passing through wood or glass. This is a really good cabinet. It conceals the wires and is easy to wire from the back as there are sliding / removable doors. [ WESLEY L  Aug 18, 2018 ]
yes the remote will work. The doors are glass. [ Paul  Aug 18, 2018 ]
The center channel opening (just below the top shelf) measures 43" (w) x 6.8125" (h) x 19.3125" (d). Hope that helps! [ Larry  Apr 09, 2018 ]  Staff
