Wiring my Home Theater

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I am in the process of finishing off my basement with a home theater. Nothing over the top but I am planning for surround sound, large TV, and a gaming system at a minimum. My TV will be centered on a wall and my AV equipment will be in a cabinent about 10 feet away. I am at the point now where I need to start wiring but I am a bit stuck on how to run power to my equipment. Should I put all of my AV equipment on one circut with multiple outlets? Multiple circuts? Should I hardwire in a surge protector in the back of my cabinent? If so, what kind? Or should I just plug a surge protector into one of my outlets? I just want to do it right. If you have any help or thoughts on what to do, please let me know. Thanks,

If you don't have huge power amps or anything one circuit should be fine.

I used a power strip like this. Plenty of outlets and nice spacing. Forty bucks at the big orange box.

Thanks, but then you still dont have any surge protection, right?

I used something like this to protect my wall mounted plasma:

Then just use a standard plug in surge suppressor for your cabinet.
