Houston, TX 10x15 Media Room Build - Need Help and Advice

I am getting quotes to have the 3rd stall of my garage converted into a media room, roughly 10x15. I already have most of the audio components, but will be going to an Atmos setup with 4 overhead speakers and upgrading the Pre/Pro. I've already gotten quotes to convert the garage and make it part of the house, but I'm not sure who to use to run the speaker wires and get the screen from. I've contacted a few companies, but I'm already having trouble getting them to come out and get me pricing. Anyone know a good A/V company that could do all the speaker runs?

What part of Houston are you in? It's so spread out here that you won't want someone coming from another part of the city and charging you for that time in traffic?

Tom,

I moved to Georgetown, north of Austin, 2 years ago. But running speaker wire is one of the easiest do-it -yourself jobs in a theater build. I would be happy to talk you through most of it if you feel up to trying to tackle this yourself. If you would like to talk, send me a PM with your contact info and your availability.

best regards,

John Dixon

Thanks for the reply. I've done the wiring myself before, but since I will be having multiple things installed, I prefer just to contract this one out.
