A Hidden A/V Cutout Disguised as Wall Speakers

A Hidden A/V Cutout Disguised as Wall Speakers

Hiding the home theater equipment is probably one of the trickiest thing in our modern day living room, but here's an idea you probably haven't considered - cutting a hole in your wall and masking it as a built-in wall speaker.

Given you have enough room behind the wall-mounted TV to do it, you can follow in Dotte's footsteps and cut a hole in the wall dedicated just for your A/V equipment. If you're gonna go through with it, we'd suggest double-checking to make sure there's enough room above the receive so nothing gets damaged from excessive heat. Even with the airy black speaker cover, you still need some room for air to circulate.

Here's some of his gear pictured (but hidden for the most part):

  • Pioneer S-V42
  • Sony Bravia KDL-40EX500
  • Sony Playstation 3 160GB
  • Yamaha RX-V767

What do you think of this look? Is it a clever way to hide your A/V stuff or an awkward hole in the wall?
