Hiding all those wires in open entertainment center

I recently purchased a new entertainment center. I previously had an enclosed shelving unit where hiding all the wires was cumbersome but easily achieved. The new one is open shelving making it a more complicated task (see pics).

Does anyone know of an external enclosure where all the wires can be hidden and placed directly behind the base of ent center on the floor?

I have searched the internet but couldn't find anything that would accommodate all the space/wires I need. The only option I can think of now is to make something out of wood, paint it black and organize/cover all the wires. Ideally something to separate the electrical wires from the a/v wires if possible.

Any help is appreciated.

1" Flex tubing would do wonders to help! The tube is slit lengthwise, so you just tuck the wires in the tube.

What I did with my open back HT stand was go to a fabric store and pick up some black crushed velvet then found some small clips at the dollar store. I cut the velvet into two strips a little wider than the shelves were tall and clipped them to the back of my set up. It worked well and I liked the look until I got my new Denon AV amp and the temps went up as a result of not having an open back for air flow. I simply removed the fabric from the upper shelf. This got me more air flow for my amp and the lower piece of velvet still hides the wires. I also did the sanding puck trick that raised my amp up an additional inch and that helped too.
