The role of each of the AU and its placement in the space of the room, and will determine the range of activities that should be considered when planning the repair of the apartment.
The front speakers are the most important part of the entire set of speakers. They can be floor standing, bookshelf and wall . When using a floor-standing speakers wires from the receiver to the front acoustics can be placed and , as a rule , are placed freely. Bookshelf Speakers involves placing two ways : on special racks (and then the cable can be in the future, simply traverse on the floor ) or on a special wall mounts .

Thus it becomes possible to more fully in the future after the repair of an apartment to provide the depth of the stage . Note that the front speakers should not be placed close to the wall and in the corners of rooms . So it is possible to avoid the formation of excess low frequencies, when their number is added also by the natural acoustics of the room sound .

Cables are routed to ripple in the thickness of the walls, space at a distance of not less than 100 mm from the electrical cables. On the part of the receiver input is organized by the speaker outlets , and from the speakers – from the wall outlet (if the planned placement of the bracket , which will close the output destination ), or also by means of acoustic outlet. It is believed that a smaller number of connections has a beneficial effect on the quality of sound reproduction . If the surround speakers are placed on the racks on the back or on the sides of the listening position , speaker cable laying wooden panel on the floor in a thicker screed. In the place of the output cable is arranged a special socket or hidden hatch .
The center channel is placed above or below the TV. If you plan to place and TV, and a center speaker directly on the wall , the cable to the center speaker should be laid in the thickness of the wall with the output at the point where the future of the bracket. When placing the center speaker in a rack or shelf cable can simply traverse the floor. When planning the repair of the apartment you need to have information on the amount of TV and central AC , methods of attaching them to the wall – so that in the future the antenna terminals , acoustic and electric cables were out of place placing TV and AC in the points where the producer of the bracket were the knockouts .

Pay attention to the quality of the cable. HDMI- cable must be of high quality especially when it is long. And if you connect the rear speakers , you can use the cable medium price category, with respect to HDMI- cable, such compromises may affect the quality of the image.
We also strongly recommend that you place the equipment DC (source video , audio receivers) in the niches arranged on the surface of the plasterboard walls. Any electronic equipment requires cooling , and its placement in these niches can lead to overheating and damage , as well as a risk of fire . The best is the placement of electronic components in a DC special racks or shelves backless , separated from the wall.
So, to summarize: before and during the repair of the apartment of the future must be planned placement of home theater components , lay the cables to the rear speakers and projector , paying attention to the indentation from the electrical cables to take care of the acquisition of acoustic outlets.
