This Friday I am meeting with the builder of my house and will be discussing wiring issues. At this point everything is pretty much set in stone, the only thing I'll be changing is the position of speaker wires and coax. So I'm looking for some suggestions on where I should run wires. Here's the layout as I'm planning it: For the PNG impaired, look at this. Keep in mind that its not entirely to scale. The room is 10' 6" wide, and the shorter wall is about 12' 8" with a standard height ceiling (8' I think). I have a standard def. 50" RPTV which I'll be keeping for a while. I currently have Polk RT-800s for the front and RT-55s on stands for the rear with a CS-350 sitting on the TV. I plan to have wire run for the rears in the bathroom wall and the half-wall next to the stairs. The mains and center are going directly to the equpiment. I need to decide on where to put the wires for the side channels in case I do those later. I've placed them where it strikes me as best. What about the height though? I'm not really sure what I'll have on the side yet, possibly some Polk LSiFx bi-pole/di-pole which are 15" high and just over a foot wide. Should I plan to put these flush against the ceiling? Also, I just realized I need to decide where to put in wires for the Yamaha front effects, but that's not big deal because placement on those isn't much of an issue. I figure maybe on the front wall, 6" in from each wall and ceiling as I'll just put something small in there. WAF and furniture is not much of an issue. I'm more worried about placement right now. I know this room isn't perfect, but it seemed a pretty good compromise with my budget and other considerations. I'm also thinking that I could skip the wiring for now and see if the money can be used on something else electrical. It might be possible for me to run those wires myself. I'm going to go by some of the other houses that are under construction and see if I can tell whether or not I'll have the room in the attic I need to get at it. But that has to wait til Wednesday evening. So that's about it. I've not dealt with di-pole/bi-pole before, so I don't know what to plan for and hope some others will give me some ideas.
