I was only planning on doing the wall plate at normal plate heights.. I have a center and two towers. I just wanted nicer terminations into the wall for for the rear channels that just come up sloppily out of my mouldings from the floor below currently. Also maybe route my ethernet up and have nicer terminations from my router to my media switch.
Again just holes that I tried to make look nice, but really arent the nicest.
My issue with the basement going up has always been clearance to get a normal drill bit in, even at an angle and knowing where it will come up. I always drilled down because it was easier to angle, but still not as precise as I would like.
I guess I am looking for the easier way to get that hole in the wood framing between the floors. Either cut a hole in the drywall and go in from behind the drywall. Or take off the moldings and drill down from behind where the molding is and hope I have enough space to get behind the drywall.
problem with the molding is not having a nailgun to get them back in and possibly breaking them prying them off. I jacked up my old moldings years ago when putting the flooring in. I learned a few lessons since then, but again, not the most handy person with home stuff.
i can post pics later if people promise not to laugh at my previous work. lol
I want to make it look nicer for now and more functional, as well as make it look nicer for when i move and get rid of the holes from the prior work
