  2. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hi all, I want to mount a tv on a wall and run its power cord behind the wall, but I know it’s against code to do this. Do they make power cords that can go behind the wall? I tried searching for them but can’t find any.

    Hello! I have 2 speakers outdoors and they are about 10 ft apart. I need to run direct burial cable to the source.

    I have 2 brand new Shunyata Research - Venom 3 power cables in original packaging. Asking $100 + shipping from CA. To clarify, I am asking $100 for each cable. I remember purchasing them around $150 each so I think $100 for a brand new one is a fair ask.
