Which cables to install and why

Modern homes with integrated video and audio systems require the correct cables installing to make present and possible future systems easy to setup and use.

When renovating a property and planning your cabling installation as a minimum we recommend a speaker cable and a CAT5e to each zone from a central point where your equipment will be permanently setup, such as an AV rack or cupboard. Some people house these areas in their garage or centrally in an inside cupboard, we have even seen them under the stairs. Choose an accessible area where all your AV cabling can run back to.
