Ha..... After lot of discussions, suggestions from fellow HTFers, I have plunged into my first DIY project. HT Wiring. I ordered the 500 ft. 12 AWG Soundking from Parts Express. I will not be using all of them, but I ordered keeping future upgrades in mind. Also ordered bunch of Banan plugs. Both are here. Last weekend, bought about 60 ft of 2" PVC and 40 ft of 3 and bunch of couplings, 90 degrees from Lowes. My wife and I crawled into the crawl space and started the project by first drilling a hole in the 2 1/2 inch thick wood base board, directly under the proposed entertainment center rack closet. Took us a good hour to drill with a poor 12v Black and Decker cordless drill. By the time we finished we ran out of daylight and was forced to stop for the day. That evening, we went and bought a better drill. Next day, started off little early and went ahead and drilled 10 holes. 3 for outlet of cables from the entertainment center rack. Two 2" pipes going towards monitor and front speakers and one 2" going towards the back for the surround. Idea is to split the front and back 2" audio PVC with a cross and step down to 3/4" for each channel. Finally at the end of the day were able to finish one set of Audio pipe done. Looking forward to complete the project by the thanksgiving weekend. I have been taking pictures. I will get them developed and post it on the website when my project is completed. If time permits, the wife and I will complete a speaker stand with MDF this weekend for the surround back. I will keep you all posted.
