Audio Rough In

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there a general rule of thumb to pricing audio rough in? I am planning on using 14/2 cable brought from each speaker back to future keypad. I will then run a 14/4 and cat5 from keypad down to server room in basement. In general, do you do unit pricing? for example $200 per 2 speaker zone and $300 for 4 speaker zone? Or, do you price based on how much material you think you are going to use plus an time estimate of how long its going to take in labour?

Most of us here would price the zones on the quantity of pizza and beer necessary to attract enough friends to help do the job... biggrin.gif

Are you trying to figure out how much it will cost (materials), or how much to charge someone for providing the service?

Assuming the latter, you should probably come up with a flat fee per zone, using an average distance for calculating wire cost and a labor estimate averaging a 1-story and 2-story run.
