unsure if this storage unit i am currently using for my 5200 center channel, 861v8, server, etc. can handle the added weight of a 7200hc.

i added the cross braces at the sides and middle as well as side panels and the perforated metal backing options.

what do you think?


eames storage unit


thx

With the support in the middle I think you should be fine.


If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day. But if you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat. And if you talk about fish to a starving man then you are a consultant.

If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a fool about it.

thank you for the reply.

my worry is that each brace uses a single screw, but i guess since there are 6 of them per shelf it will suffice.


(after OCD'ing on audiophile racks i just can't get into their aesthetics, and i searched high and low.)

The DSP7200HC weighs 65kgs 144lbs so you could load it up to see how secure it is, use books maybe?

my other worry is that books don't generate bass quite like the 7200, so over time....

i think i'm answering my own question a bit here wink

Just check the screws regularly smile
