Odd Shaped Basement, Simple Future-Proof Suggestions?
Attached is my basement, drawing is to scale. Arrow is stairs down entrance. 2 columns are in the middle and I will be drywalling around them. Wall A is ~33', B is ~11' and C is ~10'. Large angled wall will be a sliding barn door providing access to utility area.
Dashed lines running left to right indicate soffits covering steel I-beams (and HVAC in the larger one). Ceilings are ~9' except under the soffits where they are ~7.5'.
What suggestions do you have with regards to home theater wiring as well as future-proofing things? I'm getting ready to run wires and wanted some extra opinions outside of the general guidelines for outlets and lighting which I feel I have a handle on.
With TV in position B I include all necessary connections in wall B and then also want to put speaker hookups on the right-hand side of each column, as well as corresponding connections in wall A. Perhaps I put speaker connections in the larger soffit pointing towards wall B as well? Note that this would be closer to the TV than the speaker connection in the farthest column...
With TV in position C I include everything in wall C and then I'm struggling with the rear channel because the wall facing C is too short and I don't see how to place the left and right surround sound speaker connections. I can mount speakers in the soffit above facing wall C. I can use speaker towers behind the seating area but then I have wires running on the floor unless I'm missing some obvious solution.
Any suggestions are appreciated. Or tell me I'm over-thinking things. I'm just starting to get nervous because I know what I do here is final once the drywall goes up...
