How big is the Pioneer 45TX? I looked at their website and couldn't find what I needed.

Come'on, pull out the tape measure already and measure the dumb thing for me...
Sorry, I'm still at work. How about going to the store with your measuring tape? :)
Ok SRR, I needed to get off my butt and go get a snack anyway!

about 17" deep, 16 1/2" wide, and 7 1/2" tall. I measured the height counting the feet, since I figured you needed to know how much room you needed anyway. Pioneer recommends 8" of clearance above the top to allow for ventilation. Don't try to cram it into a small space, it needs room to breathe. I don't have a heat problem, but I have an open rack.
Thanks bburgoyne26.

Dang it, gonna need a new rack shelf for it. My current 4u shelves are at 15 1/2" deep. Hmmmm, wonder if I can dig up a 5u shelf that is that deep. Well like I said, thanks.
I am also in the process of puchasing 45tx. I am from a small place and I can not see it physically unless I drive 75 miles.

Could someone reconfirm the dimensions thru actual measurement or manual. I am seeing conflicting dimensions. One thread indicated 18 5/16 deep whereas bburgoyne is saying 17" deep. This is enough difference for me to reconsider my choice.

Thanks bburgoyne. I just want to be sure. Unfortunately no pdf on line for tx45.
Well, the actual depth of the metal box is 16 1/2 inches. The knobs in front may add a half inch. Don't forget you need some space in back for the cables. Some of my cables are pretty stiff and have the metal plugs that stick out quite a bit also. I need 3 or 4 inches from the wall just so as not to cram everything too tight and cause problems. Remember, I have an open shelf type rack. If you are getting a cabinet with a back and a front door, you need to allow some extra room. A closed cabinet without some ventilation would not be a good idea either.
