Sugestions on hidden wire organization 4 home theatre
Right now my 60" LED TV is mounted above the fireplace and I will be removing the fireplace and reuse the same mount. I have also decided that this is an excellent time to make accommodations to hide all wires without using that cheesy channel that just goes on the wall since the wall will be torn apart and I can put all my wiring in the wall. I want to have an open console to house receiver, BD player, cable box, etc. and place a panel behind it about 1' off the floor with the appropriate connections. Here I plan to use AC wall outlet, HDMI, co-ax and banana plug push-ins (7.1 audio). Higher up behind the TV I plan to have a smaller panel with HDMI, co-ax (as an alternative for future owners) and its own AC power. How many HDMI connections should I incorporate? Should I use the banana plugs for audio? Right now I am bi-amping my front speakers and am wondering if I should keep them like that in the new set up or abandon it as it takes 2 sets of connections (there will also be front speaker connections from the wall in the appropriate spots). All my other speakers are flush mounted or wired through the wall and ceiling. Any and all ideas are appreciated in advance.
