  1. How to run cables through existing conduit in ceiling?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    Hi, I'm new here and new to the whole HT experience too, so forgive me if this sounds a little stupid. I bought a house with an ancient sharp projector in the ceiling, probably 3 times the size of modern ones. It's already installed in the ceiling and its only cable (component) runs through...

    Home Theater Seating and Accessories
    Can anyone tell me if they know where I can get some 1" or 1" 1/2 conduit at a reasonable price? I really need about 25 feet, but I cannot really find what I want, everything is 100' rolls with $20 shipping. I have been looking high and low for this stuff. My local electrical supply does not...

  8. Laying the slab: wiring, conduit, etc

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    My thoughts have turned to the next stage of our build: the foundations and concrete slab. Obviously all the plumbing drains need to be part of the slab, but what of the wiring? I've noticed a number of slabs with much of the electrical wiring buried inside as well, and wonder if that should...
