    Wall Mounted Speaker Jacks

    I am interested in putting wall mounted speaker jacks in my den. Does any one have any suggestions? It will be for a Sony Theater System(6 speakers and a sub woofer). Thinking about mounting Jack plates in the wall(sheetrock).

    I have no idea where to buy pre-made wall jacks, but you could take solid plates and drill holes.

    Audio outlets sell plates and jacks, but they are usually for 1/4" plugs. That might still work for you, however. You could buy a 1/4" to 1/4" speaker cable then cut it in half then adapt the cut ends to suit your speakers. You would mount the jack plate like an electrical outlet.

    How do you plan to run the speaker cables from the audio source to the wall jacks?

    Do you really want plate cover plastered all over the walls? You won't be unplugging them every few days will you?

    Wireless speakers would be so much cooler don't you think?

    Thanks for the replies. The so called wireless speakers still have wires in the models I have seen. Also there is a lag between the video/audio. Was thinking about something like this>>>>
