Bar Build 036Posted: July 26, 2010
Today, Laurie gave me the green light to purchase some more electronics for the bar. I am hoping by ordering them this morning, they will get here this week while I have the house to myself and have some time to install all this great stuff.
These Polk Audio 55 All-Weather speakers will be mounted under the deck and be hooked into the touchscreen jukebox.
I also will be installing a volume control knob on the deck to adjust the volume without having to go back downstairs into the bar because I am lazy like that.
Next is the Recessed Media Box from Monoprice.com. This will go behind the TV and chances are no one will see it, but I will. I like the cables to look nice and tidy, not a big distressed mess. So with this, the cables pass through the rubber part and into the wall.
I also grabbed some bannana style plugs to make connecting speakers that much easier and to make sure none of the signal is lost through a shitty connection.
Finally, I bought plates for the speaker wire and cable pass throughs.
When all is said and done, the inside of the media closet should look something like this:
So most of the progress done to the bar this week will go unseen by mostlty everyone. But does not matter, as these things need to be done for a nice and neat cable management and easier expansion in the future.
Stay tuned as I will post pictures of the installation and progress.
