I've been going through some installation photos and I realize that I don't get the pictures posted as often as I like.
They're rough, and mostly from my panasonic point and shoot, but I think it will be fun. in no particular order:
sometimes a small adjustment is needed.
...yes the hole was patched.
Big TV hang. Before everything was light as a feather. This may have been one of the first 65" displays we mounted. It was on a multi-axis arm, and it weighed... a lot more than they do now. you can see the small marker to the right of the display for the in-wall speaker installed shortly after..
This was also pre-HDMI. back when we thought video signals would naturally progress to 5-wire. I've always pulled extra wires for future who-knows-what will come along, and we later converted this system to HDMI via cat5.
You can see the outline of ' the Falcon' between the arches of the garage. good times.
Can you say "close call" ? A palm desert home had an open access hole directly over the A/V equipment room. A heavy rainstorm later and there was a puddle in the equipment closet. Fortunatly, we had not yet installed to equipment except for the camera DVR (which was just out of the way of the drip.)
You can see the hose of various wire pulled to that room layed out along the floor. 10 Zones of audio, video, automation, whole house music, 2 surround systems and a dedicated theater. and all of the telecom was on the adjacent wall that you can't see.
Did I mention Kitchen remodel?
Here is a collection from a kitchen/family room remodel in Riverside. we moved around power, new appliances, new lighting, undercabinet lights, updated the music and intercom system and made a slick family room surround system complete with in wall subwoofer!
