All Xtension Products Are Proudly Manufactured in the USA!
The DIY cabinets are the same as our other 32” cabinets but the included controller is not pre-wired and no buttons, joysticks or any other peripherals are included. Essentially it is an “empty” cabinet that you can customize to your liking! The holes for the buttons will still be pre-drilled and the controller will include the protective plexiglass with the pre-applied and undermounted artwork of your choosing, but nothing else.
Our 32″ Cabinet is one of the most versatile arcade gaming systems on the market. This arcade cabinet allows you to play your favorite games both old and new, from a single arcade machine. This arcade cabinet is a perfect gaming solution for everyone from serious gamers to casual fans thanks to its affordability and durability. Turn your game room into everyone’s favorite place in your home to have fun and relax!
Us Vs. Our Competitors:
Here at Rec Room Masters, we believe in offering the highest quality parts. You will not have to take apart your cabinet to replace all of the components with better ones as is the case with many of our competitors. We see this time and time again, due to the fact that many of our competitors include cheap knock-off parts that offer poor performance.
Our cabinets also offer many features that the competition simply does not have. Our easy to remove Xtension controllers can be used as stand-alone controllers should you wish to take them to another room or another location all together! You can also easily swap between our 2 player and 4 player Xtension controllers using the same cabinet! You can remove the top half of the cabinet, turning the bottom half into a pedestal. These features essentially give you a multi-function cabinet design with the option to use it as a full-size cabinet, a pedestal, a stand-alone controller or as both a 2 player and a 4 player cabinet! Furthermore, because our cabinets are assembled in two halves, they are extremely easy to move and to fit into tight spaces.

Cabinet fits most 32" standard VESA mount flat screen monitors/TVs. We recommend purchasing a display where the ports are located on the side or bottom as opposed to the back of the display for easier installation.
We include four 30mm M4 screws/washers. If your monitor/TV requires different length screws, you will have to source them from your local hardware store.
If your ports are on the back, you will need longer screws and nylon spacers to create a gap for your cables between the back of your display and the mount. You will also need a 90 degree HDMI or DisplayPort adapter. You can find these products here:

Logitech Multimedia 2.1 Speakers Z213
This is a good choice for simple set up as all necessary parts are included (plus you also get a subwoofer). You can use any similar computer speakers, it doesn't necessarily have to be this exact model.
You can simply place these in the marquee area and leave them loose or you can secure them with velcro or some other method if you like.
BOSS Audio Systems BRS40 50 Watt, 4 Inch Speakers
These speakers are an exact fit for the holes in the speaker panel. They will screw into the pre-drilled pilot holes on the back of the speaker panel (this should also apply to any other 4" speakers).
BOSS Audio Systems BRS52 60 Watt, 5.25 Inch Speakers
These speakers will also fit although they overlap the speaker holes a bit. They will not align with the pre-drilled pilot holes for the screws so you will have to drill your own holes for the four corner mounting screws.
NOTE: you will need a small amp such as this one and speaker wire to go along with the speakers above.
