Way too many things could be pre wired for, and there are many different opinions out there about how to prepare your new home.
To ensure you don't miss anything, it might be worth a trip to a local custom install firm. Even if you plan on doing it yourself, paying for a proper design and understanding of what and why you may want to add certain wires or conduit to various locations will be worth the cost.
A CI firm can also help establish a budget for your wish list.
Anyone have any tips on preparing to build a home and planning ahead for a media room and other audio zones?
I plan on prewiring the house for 7.1 in the media room and probably running wire for a pair of speakers in each additional room of the house.
Any tips would be really appreciated.
