Home Theater Cable Concealment
Cable concealment for surround sound can be relatively simple as long as all the speakers sit in close proximity to the entertainment unit. But getting the best all around sound experience can be a challenge because the speakers need to be spread across the room. For those that want their cables concealed discreetly there are a couple of options.
- Pre-wire - which is only available at the beginning of a build or during a major rennovation
- Run the cables along the wall and conceal with furniture, decorations, rugs, etc… This option can look nice but does make the wires somewhat visible
- Run cabling through the attic and down the inside of walls. This requires adequate attic access. Depending on your home configuration this may not be feasible
- Install a wireless sound system - this will eliminate the need for running cables to and from the central unit but the speakers will still need a power source close by
