What’s the Difference Between Component Wall Shelf and Regular Wall Shelf from Ikea?

Key Differences – Component Wall Shelf vs Regular Wall Shelf 

Component wall shelves are equipped with vertical wall mounting bracket which also serves as a wire management channel whereas regular shelves don’t have that feature.

Wires can pass through the wire management channel vertically up through a Component Wall Shelf, whereas regular wall shelves are not designed to have cables pass through the shelf. *This is really important if you need to run power cord or cable up from an outlet below the shelf.

Regular wall shelves don’t provide enough depth (front to back) for most AV components whereas Component Wall Shelves are designed to fit most AV components.
