I am looking to replace an unused dresser in my room with an equipment rack for my hifi gear.
Due to the specific issues concerning the dimensions of my room, this rack can only be 30 inches wide, I’ve found a few that fit my needs but they are aggressively expensive and non modular.
I was thinking is it possible to find a 30 deep open frame rack and repurpose it for hifi.
If I get the right size wood shelves and fasten 1U brackets to it do you think the server rack will hold it securely?
I’m not sure what you mean by modular…but take a look at StarTech.com’s options. width is generally a set specific, but there are several models with adjustable depth. and if you get an open frame rack, you can put in a number of different types of shelving options.
I sell these things as part of my living, so I’m pretty familiar with them. feel free to ask questions or provide more details / clarity as to what you need and what limitations you face / have.

My concern are the shelves. I know they can support the weight of the equipment I want but am worried about vibration. Fashioning a wooden shelf from L brackets with seems like a good option
