    Hi guys

    I'm planning the cabling for my cellar conversion and I'd like to use wall plates for the rear speaker set up. I found this

    [​IMG]

    but I can't find one suitable for bi-wiring. Would it be OK to start the bi-wiring at the face plate or is it better to take it all the way back to the amp by buying two of these plates?

    Sorry I'm a bit new to this :rolleyes:

    Much better (in fact only really relevant) if taken right back to the amp - in fact better yet if the amps are also seperate (i.e. bi-amping). That said, it is really hard to detect the difference unless you have the ears of a bat and a system to match or long runs of cable
    BTW, face plates aren't that hard to make - just use blanking plates & the connectors you want (Maplin do loads of suitable ones)
    cheers

    I think I'll go with single wire for all the rear speakers but put in bi-wire for all the fronts. I'll have to make my own face plate to do this but it should keep everything future proof (can't see me wanting to bi-wire the rears).

    I'm only starting with 6.1 but I want the wires in place for 7.1 just in case, it will be a pain to rewire retrospectivly because the walls are being tanked :eek:

    I'm going to wire the fronts direct rather than put in face plates because i want to maximise the quality on those runs.

    How about a 7.1 version of what that link does?

    But with screw down terminals?

    I'll see if I can get a photo for you

    7.1 version would be ideal :)

    In fact any tips on where I can get these parts at a decent price would be great too :)

    Try www.cyberselect.co.uk - they have a good range of plates, such as the one attached which I went for.
