Pre Wiring Home Audio

I am building a house, and the drywall is not up yet, I was wondering if anybody can give me some info on prewiring my surround in the living room, and what is the best way to go about it (In wall speaker system versus a mounted system). Thanks

The main thing is to get it wired. The type of speakers you use is not really important at this point.

If you "criss-cross" your wires in the cavity you want to use - you'll have the option of installing either in-walls or on-walls.

That being said, it's really going to come down to what kind of setup you want (5.1, 6.1, 7.1, etc.) and how good of a speaker you want to install (bi-pole, di-pole, etc.) I would highly recommend wiring for 7.1

One last note - <i>take lots of pictures</i>. You don't want to be fishing for wires later on.

Good luck!

Can you elaborate on the criss-cross item?

Also, is there a resource where I can research the setup with regard to the 5.1, 6.1 etc?
