Hi! Following are several of the more common arcade video game cabinet sizes, weigths, and applications. These are often the cabinets that we refurbish or build new when building a custom finished multicade.
This information can help you to determine whether a particular style cabinet will fit in your gameroom space, whether it will fit through a doorway, whether it will fit a stairway, and whether you can handle the moving job by yourself or not.
Additionally, the uses and applications information is a good primer on the subject of vertical versus horizontal games, cabinets, monitors, and multicades. Understanding this topic will help you narrow your search for the right cabinet for the type of multicade you want. More on this topic to follow.
With 300 to 400 arcade video game cabinets of various shapes, sizes, and styles always on hand, we can provide the cabinet to fit just about any need, situation, or look.
The above photo is of the portion of our shop where we keep around 100 cabinets on the ready. Additionally, we have several other cabinet storage facilities packed full of cabinets.
For information and ideas about how various cabinets can be custom finished just for you, visit the Ace Amusements' Custom Multicade Photo Gallery, or The Ace Amusements Custom 2477-in-1 Multicade Photo Gallery.
For help understanding the difference between a horizontal game cabinet and a vertical game cabinet visit Vertical Versus Horizontal Video Games, Arcade Cabinets, Monitors, And Multicades.
The cover of this Galaga manual protrays all three - cabaret (left), cocktail (center), and upright (right). We can provide both new and refurbished upright and cocktail cabinets. And occasionally, refurbished cabaret cabinets.
Identifying a cabinet as a 19" or 25" monitor cabinet is a reference to the diagonal size of the original CRT monitor for which the cabinet was designed and built. CRT monitors have since been replaced by LCD/LED monitors, which are available in a variety of sizes.
We strongly encourage that you upgrade your cabinet from its original CRT monitor to a new LCD/LED monitor. You can read all about the matter of LCD vs. CRT at Choosing The Best Monitor For Your New Multicade.
