Don't forgot i finally got some tools of my own
got a minute for lunch so i figured i would post some pics of the wiring. I must say I am very very happy with the progress we made this weekend, took some engineering (columns and curves mainly), but the room cosmetics of the room are now "fully" designed and ready to be finished off
all we need now is to finish off the drywall, mud and sand, paint and carpet (and of course columns and trim and the fancy stuff)
- anyone wanna take bets on how long I wait to set up a "temp" a/v system to test everything?
thought i'd explain some pics of the low voltage wiring for those that might be curious
managed to get everything across in one pull including:
1) 1 Big green cable =2cat 6 and 2 RG6 - why? just because I had it left over (barely made it)
2) 2 additional Cat 6 cables
3) Speaker wires for L,C,R and Side Surrounds (rears come through the back)
4) 2 RCA cables for the subs
Here's the view from the equipment closet (cutting that conduit down afterwards was kinda scary - but it got done)
Here's the run through the room prior to the soffit framing
another view - ran the speaker and data cables through separate rings
everything is safe and sound in the equipment closet (looped up high so nothing can be put on it) - the loops on the left are the 2 big green cables and 2 cat6s from the home run to the "nerve center" in the garage - you can also see how we trimmed down the conduit on the two runs going into the theater - the one on the left is for the projector, and we still need to add one for the riser and rear surrounds.
Also got the rear surrounds wired and ran a 3/4" conduit through the other big conduit hole on the right (into the soffit - can be used as a pull tube if necc), and ran conduit to the front of the riser
Thanks again to Mr. Big for all the hard work and brain power!
