DIY entertainment center
After building some DIY subs, I got the bug to do another project. Since my Monoprice Monolith 7 amp (~100 lbs) was sitting on the ground blocking a storage room since my old entertainment center couldn't support the weight, I designed a new entertainment center. Yes, I could have ordered a retail solution yet that would have cost me at least 2x as much and still not addressed all of my wish list items. Besides, where is the fun in that??
I have a mammoth center channel that I wanted to have set around 21 inches from the ground and the side sections to be 24 inches tall so that my receiver and monolith 7 both had a shelf with plenty of ventilation. Also wanted the depth of the shelves to be 20" to ensure plenty of room to have the components and all cables plugged in without smashing anything.
So the solution I designed in sketchup is based on 1" 8020 extruded aluminum and tempered glass. I ensured everything could support the weight and not have any flex. I then ordered the components online and had them delivered within a week to assemble. You can see the design and final result in the attached pictures.
Let me know what you think!
