WireTracks WT-RF-01-10 Introduction

Over the past few years, we have received numerous inquiries and questions about how to install and run wiring for home theaters in pre-existing homes. Most often this can be a difficult and daunting task, especially if you have a two-story home with no attic crawl space or a home that has tile or wood floors. These types of homes can be nearly impossible to pre-wire without extensive demolition to walls and ceiling surfaces.

All this work may be too much for the average DIY home theater hobbyist. Hiring a pro may be cost prohibitive considering all the finish work that may need to be done.

Now a recent upstart company, Wire Tracks, located in the great Pacific Northwest has introduced a unique product that can help the average home theater DIY'er pre-wire their home theater easily and cost effectively. The Wire Tracks kit can be installed behind existing baseboard or surface mounted. There is also a kit for crown molding installation. The wires are neatly hidden within the plastic molding in a large chamber.

For the purpose of this review we will limit the discuss to surface mounting only because that will require the least amount of work for the DIY'er.
