Shelf Layout: The BDI 8537 has three side-by-side compartments for components. The outer compartments are 18-1/2" wide, 16-1/2" high, and roughly 16" deep. There are 6 available height positions in each outer compartment, so you can adjust the shelf height to fit your components. There is also a shelf in the bottom portion of the middle compartment. The center shelf is 24-3/4" wide, 6-15/16" high, and 16-3/8" deep.
Convertible Center Drawer: A drawer is provided in the upper part of the center compartment. The drawer is 22-1/2" wide, 6-1/2" high, and 15-1/2" deep. You can remove the drawer if you wish to place a center channel speaker in the drawer space. The supplied speaker drawer panel (with a cloth grille) replaces the front of the drawer to enclose the compartment. With the drawer removed, the space remaining for a center channel is 24-1/2" wide, 7" high, and 16-3/8" deep.
Drawer Weight Capacity: The bottom shelves have a weight capacity of 75 pounds each. The adjustable shelves have a weight capacity of 50 pounds.
Sliding Back Panels: The unit has two back panels that can slide left or right, giving you easy access to the connections of your components.
Ventilation: The 8537 A/V cabinet has ventilation slots in each shelf, on the bottom panel, and on the back panels. These "flow-through" vents promote air flow, keeping the components cool, and prolonging component life.
Hidden Casters: The three metal legs have hidden casters and adjustable feet. The feet can be adjusted up or down from inside the cabinet using a hex wrench. With the feet in the up position, the cabinet rests on the casters, allowing you to easily roll it forward or backward. This makes the cabinet easy to move away from the wall to add or remove components. When the cabinet is in place, you can adjust the feet down to lift the cabinet off the casters to keep the cabinet from rolling.
Some Assembly Required: The 8537 comes as a partially-assembled cabinet. The only assembly required includes attaching the metal legs, installing the shelves and back panels, and attaching the hardware.
Optional Flat Panel Mounting System: You can add the optional BDI 8540 flat panel mounting system (item # 6318540) to the 8537 cabinet. With the 8540 bracket installed, you can mount most flat panel TVs up to 50".
