Hi all, Im looking for a perforated metal screen to replace the plywood back of my stereo cabinet to give it some ventilation. I was interested in something similar to what Salamander uses on their doors. Does anyone have an idea of wherre I could buy this? Thanks

Not sure but why put a back on it at all?

The back is likely important for structural stability. You could probably just jigsaw a few large holes in strategic spots and still have integrity.

Drill some holes or make a cut out in the back and add a computer fan.

You could order from McMaster-Carr. I removed the backs to my furniture and thumb tacked a similar color pc of burlap as cover with ventilation.
