    Hi,

    I have finally decided on my components and bought most of the kit, but my installer has pulled out of the job.

    I need an installer that can do the following:

    Mount Sony OLED over fireplace
    Build false wall around fireplace to house 3 x Monitor Audio CP-IW460x speakers
    Install all cabling in walls for Monitor Audio Gold FX surrounds speakers
    Replace ceiling with acoustically treated plasterboard
    Install 2 x Monitor Audio atmos speaker's in ceiling
    Cable all back to behind AV rack and terminate on faceplates
    Replaster the room when done to make good

    Not a small job I thought. I'd like this done in late Jan or early Feb next year.

    Is there anyone that can come and assess and quote me for this work?

    I am at my wit's end now that 4 separate installers have turned up and promised to get back to me but haven't.

    PM me if you want to keep this off the public forums

    Cheers,

    Adam

    I think many folk will be 'wary' about the reason why no one got back to you :)

    Mostly it sounds like a Construction job - with a little bit of AV in the mix.

    It may be simpler to get quotes if you split the job between a Builder and the AV requirement.

    To be fair it probably is a construction job with some AV thrown in which is something I'm realising now...

    I think mostly its just I'm doing my living room, so I can't have infinite time to get it done (wife and kid, most here can probably relate to what we want Vs time constraints and family friendly factor).

    I'm goingoing to speak to a builder and see if they can sort the fabrication work. It's also the old "am I doing this right" with speaker placement, 5.1.2, 5.1.4, 7.1.2 etc and the crazy work hours I do.

    I'm going to have a go at designing this myself and see how I go!
