    for a 50 foot run ?

    i am in the process of building the room and want to know where i can go, to get info on what else i should put inside the walls now.

    so i don't have to re-do this later.
    any advice or suggestions will help.


    thank you.

    Nomex is too prone to noise from other electrical sources and RF (no shield) for that application IMHO.

    Run in-wall rated RG6 with a copper core (not copper plated) to a couple of spots (near corners) to give you options on sub placement.

    Check the HT Construction and Interiors Forum here for tips.
