Yup, looks that way to me, too Ė and maybe an in-wall volume control at most. Tommy, tell your installer thatís all you want. The speaker wire wonít cost much, so the price will primarily ride on the speakers you choose, and labor.

I had a few people come give estimates but since they all price gouged I decided to try and do it all with out them.

But basically that as far as this that all I was getting at is that if I wanted to hook it up to the ht room it should be as simple as running the speaker wire now before the basement is finished.

This alone should work for now and still leaves me room to upgrade it later without tearing out walls.

Re: Music Speakers

Yup, if the walls are open, you can run the wire yourself! Just be sure and use CL-2 or Ė3 wire rated for in-wall use. If you want a volume control in there, you could use a simple wall-mounted stereo L-pad. Itís basically a variable resistor connected in-line via the speaker wires between the receiver and speakers. However, it can only attenuate volume, not boost it. Radio Shack or Parts Express should sell them.

Re: Music Speakers

OR, if you're thinking outside the preverbial box.

Since this is going to be inside your workout room, if you think that you might be doing aerobics to workout tapes or DVDs, get one of those TVs with the built in players and also play your CDs on it. That way, you can watch TV(be sure to run the coax before closing up the wall), exercise to a workout DVD/Tape, or just listen to a CD.
