So I've been browsing TV consoles for weeks and found a perfect one. Not sure what your budget is but I'm looking at BDI Corridor media center priced at $2,199 at a local furniture store. Checks all the boxes of housing a 210c speaker and down the road I can place an ultra short throw projector on top of it. Here's a video about it
For that much money on a console, be sure and check out the Standout Designs offerings. A few years back I sprung for one. I consider it one of the best purchases I have ever made, for both furniture and home theater. The thing is on wheels, it's impecably crafted, it's beautiful, will last a lifetime, and the thing makes life SO much better when swapping components or changing wiring! Could never go without again.
I got the 72" Horizon model, and had it stretched to 74" so it would fit the MTM-210c. Here are the specs on what I got: Horizon EX 72" upsized to 74" (2" added to middle), Rose on Cherry, shelf + drawer edition, maximum center shelf drop (11.875" available height)
If you email Allan at Standout Designs he'll take care of you. Standout Designs is a family owned company with amazing customer service, and all made in USA. Kind of reminds me of Power Sound Audio, instead they do amazing high end media consoles.
Just like Tom and PSA, can't recommend enough Allan and Standout Designs.
Edit: And as Alan P notes, wood slats in front of center channel?! Just no.
I did get these acoustic fabric grill kits for the console. Looks amazing, so clean, but don't have current pics of it. Pics I put here were before putting in those kits.
