I was thinking I would put the power strips, and all the bulk in the attic, but just pass it all (speaker wires, power cords, HDMI, etc.) through the wall to the rack.
Bad idea. Probably illegal bad.

I stumbled across this post while looking for a single wire grommet, in case anyone still can't find them, here are a ton of options:

http://www.amazon.com/s/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&field-keywords=Feed-Through%20Bushing&linkCode=ur2&tag=djdcom07-20&url=search-alias%3Dtools

They're call Feed-Through Bushings. I gave up on searching endlessly for "grommets"...once I realized they're bushings!

eBay also has plenty of options should you prefer that.

Enjoy.

No small wall plates are commercially available. Make one.

Guess it took a while BUT....

They do apparently make half height Binding Post wall plates now. I found a few on ebay and here are a couple from Amazon.

Here is a recessed one (not sure if this is better as you d have to cut a larger opening in the sheetrock and I would assume that dust would collect in there.

Thanks for the tip. wink.gif

I saw them from China about a year ago; I guess Amico bought a pallet, or ran with the idea.

That recessed looks great. Hope they sell well.

Edit - hehe. I guess it wasn't that long ago that I posted that same image - 5 mos ago.

Good to see it's now available through Amazon Prime.

is there any loss in signal or quality from connecting speaker wires to binding posts and then on to the receiver? seems it would be better to simply run the wire straight to the unit, without interruption.
also, what do you suggest sealing the hole in the drywall with, if it is hiding inside the soffit ? acoustic caulk? expanding foam?
thanks

I googled that image. Seems like it's cheap crap, I would avoid it.

I would not be concerned about the extra connections in the speaker wire.

A drywall cable bushing may be an easy method.



Single gang low voltage ring with a pass through plate



If the hole for the speaker cable is covered by the speaker, I wouldn't bother with any plate or bushing.

I like your first suggestion with the simple grommet setup. I have seen the 2nd image setup with the bristles to hold/hide the wires through.

Good suggestions.

I know this is some serious thread necromancy, but I have been searching for a similar type of thing after moving to a house that just had speaker wire coming out the walls. I don’t have the system to use them now, but I don’t want to just shove them in the wall and lose them either. Due to the location and speaker mounts, a standard wall plate won’t fit.

I just found the following products that look promising.

I’m guessing these are for actually building speakers, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work as a way to tidy up the wires.

I don't know if this would help but look up wall plate binding posts.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.
