This is my first post, so be gentle. hehe I've been reading and reading and can't find any suggestions / advice on speaker wire installation in new construction. My new house is being built as I type this, and I have the opportunity to run all my own low voltage cable (phone, cable, sat dish etc.) My HT will be the 22' by 15' family room with the entertainment unit on the 15' wall. I plan on using 12 ga for everything, but need some advice on how to install final connections. Do I: 1. Install a multi-gang box behind the entertainment center specifically for my 6.1 discrete receiver speaker connects using gold binding post type connectors or something else? 2. Install single gang boxes at each speaker placement with gold binding posts or do I just connect the cable directly to the speakers? 3. Should I run the sub wire to the rear, side, or front of the room? 4. Should I run the wire for the side speakers (7.1) for future? I'd like to make it as pretty as possible. As of now, I only have my receiver, a Denon AVR-3802. No speakers or TV yet, but the TV will be a minimum of 47" rear HD ready widescreen. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. BTW, great forum, very informative! Rich S.
