I moved into a home that was a builder spec house, it's got a finished basement with a theater room with speakers all wired up but it was never used. The problem is that the wires are all run into a utility room 30-40 feet away. This is a problem because I'll be installing an XBox360 and PS3 into the system and the range for those is like 30 feet AT BEST but my setup is through 3 walls too so it's too far.
The potential saving grace is that there are two coax cables run FROM that distant utility room, TO a small room just behind the theater that I want to use as the hidden equipment area. So my big question is: Is it possible to use 1-2 coax cables to transmit multiple speaker wire signals? I can't see how. But it never hurts to ask.
Presuming to answer questions you may ask, I think it would be difficult to run a new run of speaker wire from the utility room to anywhere. It's a completely finished basement.
I am feeling sunk. Any help would be appreciated.
