Hey, guys. I'm building a new home and framing should be done next week. I'm going to wire the top floor's room up for HT use, though I won't be actually using it for probably a year or two down the line. However, I want to go ahead and wire it up right while it's cheap rather than ripping out sheetrock later. I'm thinking something simple. The reason I'm delaying putting it all together now is financially based, so going nuts with it isn't really feasible anyway. Probably 5.2 with a projector overhead and a screen on the front wall. I'm going to wire for 7.2 just in case. The HT room will be on the 2nd floor that's about 26x16. The gear will be stored in a closet at the back of the room, with the screen at the front wall where a window will be (which will be blacked out once the HT room goes in to effect). The room has kneewalls on the side. I do have (6) AE IB15's I bought last year with intentions to use them in the HT but at this point, I'm not even sure I'll be doing that. Going to hang on to them for now, though, just in case. My list of things to buy consists of Wall plates (hdmi, speaker, sub) Wiring (hdmi, speaker, coaxial for sub) I know I need some sort of IR or RF transmitter for signal control since the components will be in a closet behind me, so is there something that is recommended here I can go ahead and order and install so I don't have to perform a retro install? I also may run cat 6e and wall plates in the house but I'm not sure. Key points: Simple HT planned. Needing to make sure I get everything I need for wiring and connections this week. Anything you can think of that I MUST have? FWIW, I wanted to go crazy and do distributed audio, double layered drywall, clips, a THX style baffle wall, etc, etc to make this an audio dream but I just can't justify the budget for that.
