Room for 4-5 components

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.

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
