5. Speakers and Wiring > 36. Organize Your A/V Racks

Organize Your A/V Racks

With hundreds of cables involved in connecting your components, you’ll need to be careful and logical in placing each audio or video unit on shelves or racks. You also should take care to label and group cables and components.

When it comes to setting up your home theater, you’ll find that you’ll spend as many hours connecting cables and wires as you spend tweaking the picture and adjusting the sound. And, as you’ll always find some new piece of killer gear later on, this isn’t a one-time operation; you’ll be back in that morass of cables again and again. Taking some time to figure out where best to place your components will save you frustration, hassle, and wasted dollars on additional, longer cables down the line. From there, you can use labels, a bit of Velcro, and banana plugs to take the mess that is your theater setup and turn it into an organized, easily maintained audio/video system.
