You just spent a lot of money on your new home theater system, but now you’re looking at a lot of “black boxes” and wondering where to put them all.

Maybe you have young kids obsessed with pushing buttons. (What kids aren’t, after all?) Then you’ll want your components neatly tucked out of sight in a closet, or at least behind a cabinet with a safe Lexan door.

Maybe you want to show off the components as part of the high-tech style of your new home theatre, essentially making your components and the rack part of your home’s furniture. That’s okay, too.

Here are some questions to consider when you decide on a rack system for your home theater and audio components:

  • Where will your rack be housed? In the family room with your HDTV and surround sound speakers, or tucked away separately? Will it be seen?
  • What kind of rack will meet your needs: one with slide out shelves? Rotating? Stand-alone? Wall-mounted?
  • How many components do you have right now? What home theater components might you add in the future?(Blu-Ray, game systems, AppleTV, etc.?) Be sure to select a rack that will meet your needs today but provide room to grow. Because home theater enthusiasts always need another component!
  • How much space will the components require to allow for proper ventilation?
