Great idea, that's a BIG time saver!!..Thanks :TAnother suggestion since the walls are still open - consider running conduit to those locations so you can change wiring much easier once the walls are closed up. Conduit is actually really cheap and saves big expense later...
I'm currently running 5.1, I just didn't post any pics of the back of the room yet..I will now run enough for 7.2 for sure!!..Thanks for the suggestion!!.. I'm already on the hunt for some side speakers, might do the in wall speakers for the sides..I have floor standing for the fronts and rears..I can see this being a never ending project, but I love it!! :bigsmile:I would recommend you do more speaker wiring also....trust me as time passes you will want to upgrade and its easier to run the wires now with the ceiling open, a lot easier. I know because i am currently working on running cables in closed walls and its a nightmare...then agian your a horrorfan LoL! Thats a joke.
I started with 7.1 before the walls were up. Added 4.3 after walls.
I would run wire for 11.2 to be safe. It appears you have 3.0 currently. So you would need to add sides x2, rear x2, front wides x2, front height x2, and at least 2 sub runs (2 to the front or 1 to front and 1 to back).
That way in the future if you decide to add more speakers just purchase and plug and play.
That's a sweet deal delivered with no pickup or delivery charges. Not sure how he stays in business but good for you. I have at least 50 ft left over and two trips to HD.I ran 16-4 in wall wire. I called an installer in the phone book & he came by for no charge & gave me a box of the wire (1000 ft) & charged me 10 cents a foot for all I used. It was labeled every foot so we knew exactlly how much I used. Point being, you can get this wire for $.26/ft in bulk (cheap as I can find today) & have plenty to wire as much as you want.
Here's one for $.22/foot
