    Default Just some Rack Pic's to check out.

    This is a job I did where the gear lived in a unfinished part of a very old house basement. These pic's where taken before the job was finished but you get the Idea. I did all the work in these pic's.

    Excellent work Mantis. If your ever in my area, stop by and work some magic on my setup. I was going to give you a hard time, but I decided to give you the ole' swift kick in the buttocks, and a pat on the back. Excellent work my friend.

    A few questions though, what does the rest of the gear include? Dedicated theater/screen?

    Thanks man , this gear is a whole house control system by Control 4. All those things on the left side are Matrix switches and Amps , all Digital 16 channels each with 120 watts of pure ass kicking watts of power.
    There is only one surround room in this system and 4 system tv's with 28 zones of music. We control the lighting , HVAC and doorbell. System is controlled with Ipod touch , Ipads and a few Iphones.
    I have a shot of the surround TV with a surround bar , Ipad , it's cool looking.
    The black box is a custom in cabinet James Subwoofer with a Toe kick underneath the cabinet. It puts pressure into the room. Amp lives in the racks in the basement. TV is a Samsung 3D LED 65 inch with a Definitive Surroundbar SSA50. I didn't take a pic of the rears which live in the ceiling and are Def Tech's as well. The sub sounds fantastic.

    28 zones of music .....amazing . Very nice looking , neat wire management( 28 zones must be about 20 miles of wires ).

    Great work.

    Damn... not the kind of "Rack Pic's" I was hoping to find.




    Nice job. Looks like this one job will keep your belly full for at least 6 months.

    Nice wire job. Gotta like buying bulk cable and then terminating to exact/custom length.

    How much cable did you end up installing?

    Eh, nice to see mantis work. Rack mount is not the most appealing for home use but definitely great professional install. I prefer having my gear visble so I want to modify my rack mount with nice wood panels to make it more appealing and at the same time have the proffesional set-up that rack mount provides.

    Go ahead, pull your gear out and start over again, that is part of the game of this fine hobby! ;) Then show us pics of some you can be proud of! ;)
