I'm just starting the process of building a basement theater project. Looking for opinions on using distribution wall plates or just pass through open wall plates? I would hate to introduce the chance for more noise or weak links? I would love to hear input from all of you experienced enthusiasts.

Thanks,

Jeff

I personally like the scoop wall plates for the head-end. Just one double-gang scoop wall plate with a low voltage plaster ring is sufficient for low voltage wiring for most systems. Plus you don't have the slight signal loss and increased impedance from the connectors....not to mention the additional cost. That being said, behind display panels, remote location of speakers and subwoofers, etc. I will always terminate with wall plates for an ultra-clean look.

EDIT: Double Gang Scoop Wall Plate

Most connection problems happen at connectors. The fewer connectors you have in a circuit, the better.

Thanks for advice guys, I'm on the same page. Only one I didn't see on monoprice, was a wall plate for the subwoofer RCA termination.
Any suggestions for the subs?

Thanks,

Jeff

Keystone, with Cable connection on the backside, and RCA out to the Sub...
Or RCA to RCA, if you have a standard RCA cable inwall...
