Had a pretty remarkable day working up on the hill with… go figure… my dad! No arguing, father/son back and forth, just put your head down get a bunch of work done type going at it. We actually made quite the team and pulled 1000 feet of speaker wire to several locations throughout the house. I could say specifics, but mom just might get annoyed at where we wired speaker terminals (hey… we only wired them, that doesn’t mean there will actually be speakers there!)… ah, heck I’ll just tell you anyways.
We wired a 7.3 home theater surround sound to the family room, meaning: front left/center/right, surround left/right, back left/right, and subwoofer left/right/back. Sounds like a whole lot of speakers, but there’s almost 5000 ft.³ of air to move/fill so my system will definitely have its work cut out. Then, 5.1 in the living room, two channel stereo in my bedroom, in ceiling speakers in the sunroom, and waterproof outdoor monitors for the back deck. Ahhh… I can’t wait to be sitting outside enjoying the sun listening to my favorite tunes! A few pictures of dad busy at work:
All in all, a great, super productive day. Now I’m just waiting on a phone call back from an automated shade integrator to help outfit me with the rest of the parts I’ll need for my electric solar shades, some samples of front projector screen material to test out with my projector, and a call from the automation guys in Texas to set me straight on a few questions. Tonight, it’s planning and laying out my input/output locations for the main controller and expansion enclosures so that I can make sure we run all the wires to the right place this weekend.
Oh! Did I mention the passive solar affect yet? The house is already getting toasty, even with no insulation installed, just by the sunlight beaming into all those windows!
