Add the finishing touch to your modern interior with this sleek black wall-mounted console, perfect for complementing any contemporary decor. With plenty of storage space for DVDs and consoles, this entertainment system is ideal for a large family....more
Less is more when it comes to a solid entertainment center. This unit allows all the components to fit perfectly, and DVD/Games to fit on the bottom shelf. It is a huge improvement over the traditional TV stands that take up a lot of floor space. When everything is off the floor, it really draws attention to you multimedia center. Though there are cutouts for cable management, if you really want to get the best out of this product, run all the cables you can within the wall. Be sure to measure first, as 58 inches wide takes up a lot of space. I have a 55 inch slim TV. When using the recommended mounting heights, it's a little above the optimal center-of-screen eye level. But that is fine for me.
1. VERY IMPORTANT: Picture has TV on top of console. On front page of directions has warning stating this console is designed for wall mounted TVs only. When installing the metal rail to hang the unit on, I noticed it's not very strong, I would not recommend setting my TV on top of this while its hanging on the wall.
2. Directions state to predrill 7/32 holes in studs to mount metal rail. This is too small for lag bolts. I used 1/4 and predrilled 3 inches into stud just fine.
3. Given the dimensions, if you put your home receiver
If you place your receiver in one of the spaces, there is little to no room for ventilation. Since I cut out the drywall in the back to run wires, I put a case fan to move the air out the front. As hot as a receiver gets, I'm sure it will decrease the life of it without consideration for cooling in this console.
All in all a great addition to my media center. Takes some time and 2 people to put it together and mount it correctly.

I did a lot of research in trying to find a cabinet that would 'float' on the wall and this one fit the bill. It arrived about 4 days after ordering, LOVE how Overstock ships so quickly and for free! It was easy to assemble, all the parts were included. It took me about an hour and a half to go from opening the box to finish hanging it on the wall.
One thing that is sort of unclear from the pictures of the unit is that the top shelf is exposed to the back wall. So at the level I have it hanging you can see the mounting bracket and the wall, along with some cords on the top shelf. I came up with what I thought was a crafty solution: I saved some of the Styrofoam from the packaging, specifically, the long, wide-ish thin pieces and cut them to fit in the back of the shelves, with holes cut out for the cords. I then used some craft spray paint (Krylon H2O latex aerosol in black), on the foam and I swear you can't even tell it's Styrofoam. If you do this, be sure to not use regular spray paint as normal spray paint melts Styrofoam.
For the price, this unit exceeded my expectations. With my Styrofoam panels in the back, this unit gives me that clean and uncluttered look I've been wanting for several years now.
I think I would be pleased with this product except some idiot designed the shipping box for this piece with the top of the cabinet
facing down on the bottom! So of course the one spot on the box that got punctured damaged the top of the cabinet. We found this after unpacking and I wasn't about to try and fit all the pieces back in the compact box and figure out how to ship the stupid thing back.. (It is sent unassembled) So now its taking up space in a landfill.
I am truly impressed with the quality of this wall mounted AV console. The assembly instructions were very accurate and easy to follow. It was packed extremely well and there was no damage at all to any of the pieces. I personally installed it on a wall in my exercise room and mounted a flat screen TV on the wall above it. It looks great! On the shelves I have installed a surround sound receiver, a blu-ray disk player, all my cd's and dvd's, and a bunch of exercise related books and magazines. Now that I know how nice the unit is, I would not be hesitant at all in installing it in any other room of my home. If a person likes somewhat of a contemporary look in their furniture, this piece should definetly be considered.

I have my 55in TV hung on the wall using a wall mount that uses two adjacent studs. I want to buy this item and wall mount this AV console below my TV BUT I need to be centered to my TV.
Question is: Can you tell me more about the system used to mount this console to the studs. Are there specific points along the 58" length that need to be hung on the studs? Ideally I would want to use the same 2 studs I used to hang my TV and center this console on those two studs.
Perhaps you can share the install instructions electronically?liketennis on Jul 18, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This comes with a metal wall mounting rail. This is very long and has a whole bunch of holes so you will be able to mount this where ever your studs are.

Is it necessary to have the dividers on the second shelf? It looks like a good spot for a sound bar but we would need to eliminate the dividers to accommodate the length.cadraroo on Jul 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
