If this is the wrong board for this, please comment.
I just purchased a new construction home. I purchased a surround sound
pre-wire. This has left the wires dangling from dry wall... I was
expecting some hookups for my speakers, not loose wires...
in addition the new stereo cabinet I bought has moved the receiver too
far from the point where the wires could connect directly into the
receiver. So a "face plate" was suggested to hook the wires behind the
drywall into the face plate, then hook my receiver into the face plate.
third issue is the sub woofer is wired with coaxial cable (not RCA
connections). I was told I could purchase a face plate which would
convert co ax signal/ cable to an RCA plug.
My system includes:
pioneer receiver (RCA inputs for sub woofer)
yamaha front speakers
bose center speaker (needs RCA connection)
infinity rear spreakers
My pre wire has 7 dry wall wire locations:
1&2) rear left and right speakers (these could hook right into rear
speakers, but looks tacky coming out of dry wall.... thoughts?
3 and 4) front left and right speakers (one of these can hook directly
into speaker, other wire might be a couple inches short, and these also
look tacky comming stright out of dry wall.
5) center channel wire (I just realized I haven't pulled this wire out
to see if it will reach my center channel)
6) sub woofer coaxial cable coming out of dry wall. My sub woofer
cannot accept this cable
7) a 7th location which has the wires routed through it- 5 speaker
wires and coaxial cable none of which reach my receiver and the co-ax
needs to be converted to RCA.
If anyone has any experience dealing with a problem like this, please
let me know.
