In this video, Alan will go over how to get started on laying out the spacing for the speakers. Your system may be different but the principles are the same. You can do this.
Don't get discouraged when you have a minor set back there are things that you can not control in the construction. Moving Studs is one of those setbacks. This can be very simple.
So you do not want to install the speakers directly over the head of the listener this is a common mistake. You want to go about 2 feet off the wall and to the right of the listening position.
Cutting in the back speakers and running wire. "I am doing this for you viewers" How to drill up through the top plate of a stud. Only do this if it is your only resort.
How to attach the wire and run the wire into the attic. Make sure to use electrical tape. Alan is using a glow rod in this installation. Be a good friend with you tape the wire.
Lots of ways to make simple mistakes that will cost you time money and frustration. Do it right the first time. Take your time. This is a project that you will enjoy for years to come.
So we are using a rack for this example but you may be going to a cabinet or a shelf. The principles are the same. Run all of the wire at once do not burn the wires. Always leave slack.
