This ended up a little longer than I thought, sorry. I have a room I'm currently working on turning into our main tv/entertainment area. Basically I'm working with a blank slate, but plan on wall mounting a tv and hooking up a surround system in the near future. I've already installed recessed lights, and added a couple outlets where the tv and electronic gizmos will go. My question involves running wiring for surround sound purposes, and the research I've done has resulted in some conflicting information, specifically regarding a subwoofer. Some recommendations I've seen have specified using coax, and some just regular speaker wire, and I'm just looking for advice as to what I should run. This is all being run in-wall and across the ceiling in the attic, as this is the only room in the house not over the basement, it's a fucking pita getting up there, and I've had to cut out small sections of drywall in the wall and ceiling to fish wire through because I don't have enough clearance to drill through the top plates in the walls, so this is gonna be a 1 shot deal (hopefully). My goal is to avoid having coax and speaker wire running like a maze all across the room. I haven't picked out a receiver or speakers yet, just trying to plan ahead. What I'm thinking is as follows: 2 runs of speaker wire to each side for the rear so I'm 5.1 or 7.1 compatible 1 run of speaker wire for the sub and/or 1 run of coax for the sub 1 run of coax for satellite tv at the front of the room Anything I'm missing or other advice would be welcomed. Thanks in advance.
