Hi guys

As part of the house rennovations I am putting in a variety of cabling into the existing rooms e.g data , tv, speaker.

Looking to cable 4 rooms with speaker wire (for 2 channels) terminating at an amp (yamaha z7) which does multizone.

These are all going to terminate in one place. So far no problems with the tv and data as there are patch panels etc available for these but i can't seem to find one for speakers.

Any ideas - all help appreciated!!

thanks

There are speaker wallplates avail, with banana / screw plugs

You could as easily get something like this and drill holes in a blank wallplate:

If you want an actual 19" patch panel instead of just a wall plate, get an 'unloaded' one and some banana plug keystone jacks.

If you do want just a wallplate, http://www.4cabling.com.au/categories/AV-Wall-Plates-%26-Inserts/AV-Inserts (or get the same keystone jacks above, and a keystone wallplate)

As far as getting banana plugs for these without breaking the bank, I've ordered these ones.

They haven't arrived yet, but should be ok.

Better than buying the same on trademe for ~$65.

Let us know how it works out, the 15-31 days shipping seems a little odd.
Is it $15.00 US for a pair? Or for a single plug?

That price appears to be for 12 pairs ("24 pieces"). That shipping time is common for aliexpress/DX.com shipping from China...

I might get some of them myself.
