Things to know before you get started.
5 Tasks for Home Theater Wiring Pros
  1. 1. Install home theater wiring

    Give a home theater installation pro your vision of your home theater. He or she will advise you on the right locations for best sound and viewing, as well as wiring your system.

  2. 2. Make necessary repairs

    When something goes wrong, a pro knows how to troubleshoot to find the source and then make necessary repairs. He or she also has the know-how to make changes that will prevent future interruptions.

  3. 3. Conceal wiring seamlessly

    There is such an aesthetically pleasing difference between setting up your TV, speakers, stereo and other audio visual equipment throughout the room and mounting these components on the walls and ceiling.

  4. 4. Share info on latest technology

    Look for a home theater installer who is certified by the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA). CEDIA-certified members tend to participate in ongoing education courses.

  5. 5. Ensure you can use it

    While he or she can recommend the proper equipment to use in the first place, after your installer has finished the job, he or she can also teach you how to use all of the equipment properly.
