Features

Recessed Component Box: The Sanus SA809 large recessed component box was specially designed for use with the Sanus SA206 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.

Just the two on the bottom I believe. [ Stephen  Aug 30, 2018 ]
Not sure what a power brick i s. I have my internet wifi box from centurytel a small cordless phone base and phone in mine mounted high in my hallway.. I like the boxes and encourage use of then in new or old construction. Fishing the wire may stink but the boxes are nice. [ david  Dec 06, 2017 ]

Yes. I put a Sony power brick in it. [ Andrea  Dec 03, 2017 ]

plastic [ david  Dec 06, 2017 ]
David, this box is made of very sturdy plastic. [ George  Apr 28, 2017 ]
plastic, be sure to cut the box with enough room , JUST so it fits into the hole... It has wings that deploy as you tighten them to hold it in place. dont screw up or youll end up drilling and placing wall anchors as I did.. [ david  Apr 28, 2017 ]
It is plastic. [ Michael  Apr 28, 2017 ]
It's made of plastic. [ James  Apr 28, 2017 ]
I installed vertical because of studs, so make sure you at least have room for that width. [ Robert  Apr 29, 2016 ]
I believe so , the remodel style clamp type brackets will hold it and as in my case by placing the flush end against a stud and using screws I believe it will be just fine [ BRENT  Apr 22, 2016 ]
Your best bet is going to be to give us a call. You can reach our Customer Support team at 1-800-955-9091. They'll be able to look up your order and help you find any information you may need from it. [ Jeff  Aug 25, 2015 ]  Staff
