What do you look for in a Home theater cabinet? There are many considerations but not all are obvious. Often, at a great inconvenience, these shortcomings are not discovered until after the purchase.
One of the most important considerations is proper ventilation. This is one area where many cabinets failed miserably. They’ll appear to have airflow vents, but in practice these are insufficient, especially when the doors are closed. The amplifier/receiver or cablebox will overheat and shut itself off. Overheating can also shorten the lifespan of most electronics. In some cabinets, a thermostatically control fan is required.
Adequate Shelf Space
Another consideration is the shelving’s depth, height, and rear access. Be sure the cabinet has sufficient depth for your receiver and enough space to easily connect the cables in the back. Many of today’s quality receivers and components are quite deep and heavy. To wire these components together, you will require access to the component’s rear. Also check for adequate airflow space around the components.
Organizing the Wiring
Without good wire management, just connecting the receiver, speakers, DVD/Blu-Ray player, cablebox, and game console will create a spaghetti-mess of wires in the back, making it difficult to service. Look for ways the cabinet can reduce this clutter.
Most traditional furniture brands, which are sold in furniture stores, do not fully understand these issues. It’s because they’re not in the electronics business.
