Yes, before. Put them up and then pull the wire through the ring and leave hang. They'll put the drywall up and rotozip around the ring. Voila! Other wise they have no idea where to pull the wire through. I bet they'll guess though and hope you like their choice.

I'll get some of the rack area and the speaker locations when I go back in this week.

Looks great!

I can't remember what you decided to do for various audio zones. Did you run speaker wire to each zone from the control closet? I just purchased a MOTU 1248 and used it this past weekend at the Iowa Crawl. The similar MOTU 24ao is the perfect device for whole house audio. It has 24 outputs using the ESS Sabre32 Ultra DAC chips for under $1000. The outputs are multi-client meaning you can use them all separately for zones. Many pro audio devices only let you use the device once regardless of how many channels you are using. The MOTU is controlled over ethernet using its own built in web interface. It has super flexible routing which lets you reconfigure your entire zone layout at any time.

I ran all speakers back to the control closet, other than the two in the garage which are local there - Ryan talked me into and it made sense.

There is the Master bed/bath, kitchen, deck, and then the 4 dedicated to the great room. That has a 7.X setup using 4 monoprice 8"? in the ceiling for surrounds and the 3 L/C/R Klipsch.

I was just going to by a 4 zone thing I saw that I just walk up and manually select to turn the zones off or on. Not technically advanced but looked simple and fairly cheap. Any ideas?

They are installing lights 4/17 or so - I will probably install my ceiling speakers at that point - maybe wait closer to close for the Klipsch.

I like the design and it looks like everything is progressing nicely!! If I were you I would blur your address on the pictures. You can never be too careful. Congrats on the new house and good luck with the theater build!

Thanks for the tip, deleted those photos.

I need to change the name of this thread since it is now misleading!

Nice progress! For some reason I lost track of this thread, I won't let that happen again. I'm sure you said and I missed it, but what is your time frame/expectations for finishing?
