Prewiring for speakers
We have our ceilings opened up as part of a kitchen remodel and it provides access to the floor joist cavities in almost the entire 1st floor. While things are open I would like to pre-wire for recessed speakers in several rooms, but I don't have the budget to buy speakers right now.
I looked at speaker pre-wire enclosures/brackets and most of them are relatively expensive ($30-40). My other option is to install a standard box and wall plate where I plan to install speakers, and go back later to make the cutout big enough to fit the speakers I buy. However, my wife is not sure she likes the idea of a looking at a ceiling for several months with multiple blank wall plates.
Anyone have other suggestions on how to pre-wire so that the wiring will be accessible when I want to later install speakers?
