I'm building my in-wall rack into unfinished space, so I'm not constrained on depth. I was just curious if anyone had suggestions on pro/cons of making it deeper than needed for the standard component size + wiring? It will have a door on the back, so not sure if that changes the thinking on this.

For example, I was thinking about using the bottom level of my rack with a pull-out tray to store blu-rays.

Thanks!

26". While 20" sounds good for most things, you will likely have a deep component now or in the future that will start having issues with cables getting squished.

It can't be too deep, if the sides are open or removable, and you have the space. In my ~38" deep server rack, I added a third set of vertical rack rails (obtained from another rack, screwed into place) near the rear, to add odd components facing rear.

Unfortunately the cabinet is too big for my mechanical room, and I'm replacing it with a 24" deep MA RCS.
