Grab your smartphone and use your resources wisely. Also, look for other rooms/closets/etc. in thew new home where the whole system might reside/locate sources/wires terminate. Understand, any new home 'prewired for xxx' doesn't necessarily mean the same setup

I've just gotten into a new house, which is prewired for home automation and theater etc...
I've never worked with home theater setup so I've got a couple basic questions
I opened up a faceplate above a fireplace - This room is pre-wired for 7.1 home theater. now behind the faceplate are 3-4 thick wires - I assume cat 6. It does not appear that the wire have loose ends so I can terminate them and connect a TV (via a HDMI/eithernet balun).
How do there generally appear, should I pull on them, would they be somehow attached to something inside the little box in the wall ?
sorry for the dumb questions - I'm actually a little smarter than I sound, I just have no experience with this stuff and not sure of the right terminology
