"Floating Entertainment Center - How high to mount for carpet install

Looking to replace my entertainment center with one that mounts to the wall. Living room has wall to wall carpet which will be replaced within a year. I would like to do the floating entertainment center cabinet before the new carpet is installed. At a minimum, the bottom of the cabinet will be 3" above the carpet(on top of baseboard). I really would like the new wall to wall carpet to be installed under the cabinet in case the entertainment cabinet would be changed. Is there a minimum the installers would need in order to be able to stretch and trim against the wall under the cabinet?

They need to be able to reach the wall to rub the carpet down and trim it, that is if they don't need to replace the tack strip.

Makes no since to me to install a hanging entertainment center, but if I had to I would have the carpet installed before I built the cabinet.
Why would you not just build it and install the carpet around it?
