4.6 out of 5 stars 324 customer reviews

Can anyone suggest a proper HDMI cable?



As long as they are 4K certified, doesn't have to be expensive:

Re: New family room rough framed, what's next?


I decided to add another pair of ceiling speakers for a 7.1 system.

14 gauge CL2 speaker wire is run, Blueboard and plaster is done, primed and ready for paint.
Drywaller cutout all the speaker openings,(4 ceiling, 3 front wall).
Hope to paint and install this weekend.

A silver lining,
Xfinity Cable had issues with internet drop outs and video stability issues, so new cable from the pole to the booster, and new cable from there to my AV cabinet.

@gbest ,
The new Dolby Atmos Format has been out for a couple of Years now.
I urge you to look at this first before you close everything up:

I finished my 11.2 System about 6 months before Atmos came out. No way will I rip my Walls open yet again.
Have Fun!

My speaker placement is modeled after the diagram you linked, the only difference is the sub woofer is placed in the right rear corner.

Room is pretty much done, how do I get the remotes to communicate with the Denon receiver and Xfinity cable box hidden behind cabinet doors?
Pics soon.
