hang heavy cabinet without studs in wall

What is the best way to hang a heavy wall cabinet on a wall that doesn't have studs in the area where you'd like to hang it?

The cabinet is less than 16" wide?  How heavy?

 

You can use a series of hollow wall anchors like toggle bolts.  You'll have to lay out the holes carefully, although with toggle bolts you'll have a little "wiggle room."

 

The other option is to open the wall and add some blocking between the studs so you have a something solid to hang the cabinet.  Since the cabinet will conceal the wall, the repair doesn't need to be perfect.
