Great Forum,

In a dillemma. I am stuck with an entertainment center and the opening is W:37 1/2" (95.3cm) H:27 1/2" (70.0cm).
Will a Toshiba Regza 37" lcd that measures 36" wide by 26" high have enough ventillation? The viewing distance is 8-10 feet, so I think a 32" will be too small. Its a christmas present, so I really appreciate any thoughts. My 2nd option is a Sony 32s3000, or a 32" toshiba.

Thanks!

Is that compressed wood, you might have to get a sander and make it fit..That's pretty tight fit.. Did you measure from the end to end not the panel depth.. You might be luckly.. Do you have pictures of what you have there?

thanks for the response,

The 37.5 inches is from one end to a trim piece. There is actually 39 inches from side to side, and 19 inches of depth. It is just a typical sauder entertainment center (My girlfriends) I attached a diagram with the specs of the entertainment center. The tv is the regza 37hl67
I am hoping any heat can escape over the top, sides, and through the bottom where the stand is.

Thanks for the help!

that setup looks nice. Cool new set also.

She has had the entertainment center for a few months with a 20" tube tv. ( she can't read the digital cable guide from the couch) So we are stuck with that. I bought the tv from costco, so I can always return it and get a 32". I'll try it out first and see after christmas.

You should able to fit that into the center you have, since it's a Sauders you can make it fit as it's compress wood and all. I would say I would never buy another Sauders again though..

1) The TV will fit just fine - obviously that is pretty much a non-issue as you have taken all of the measurements.

2) As for ventilation, that should not be a problem either as there will be plenty of room for air to flow on both sides as well as botto to top. If you are into diy, you might consider some added ventilation holes or slots in both the bottom and top of the rear panel.
