Overview: The On-Q/Legrand 7.1 Home Entertainment Connection Center
(HT1000) provides an attractive, convenient interface to your home theater
entertainment system. The HECC provides a single connection point for all the
remote cabling used in most home entertainment systems, including phone, data,
audio/video, and speaker connections up to 7.1 channel.
Connections: The HT1000 employs a "User side" (front) and an
"Installer side" (rear) designed to simplify wire terminations. The "User side"
allows easy access to telephone, data, CATV, DSS and audio connection points.
The "Installer side" allows easy access to the rear connection points by
rotating the top portion of the HECC outward and downward thus displaying
readable connection diagrams. The supplied cover plate is an attractive white
powder coated meat which allows cable access through the bottom and includes an
installed plunger for quick access.
- Speaker Connections: The HT1000 has a built-in interface board
for pre-wire home theater cabling from 5.1ch to 7.1ch. The HT1000 provides
gold-plated spring post connections for Front Left, Front Right, Center,
Surround Left, Surround Right, Surround Back Left, and Surround Back right
speakers along the front and screw-clamp terminals on the rear-panel. The
HECC also provides a mono-RCA Jack for connecting your powered-subwoofer.
The front side of subwoofer connection is female RCA jack while the rear is
a treaded F-type coaxial connector.
- Audio/Video Connections: The On-Q HT1000 also features three
F-type connectors for CATV, AUX and Satellite audio/video signals. All three
connections features a male F-type connector on the front and back of the
- Data/Phone Connections: The two supplied RJ-45 connectors provide
a Data and Phone connection which snaps into place on the On-Q 7.1
Connection Center. A clear snap-on wire retention cap is included with
connector to provide a secure fit. Each connector has an RJ-45 connector on
the outside and an 8-wire punchdown-type wire terminal on the inside. One
connector is black in color, while the other is white in color.
Expandability: Additional whole house distributed audio can be
interfaced with the HT1000. The HECC features a blank panel which allows you to
add an additional On-Q source input module.
Mounting: The HECC is recess mounted and provides a low profile
interface which includes a cover that hide unsightly wire connections and aids
in wire management. The supplied mounting bracket and hardware allow you to
mount the HT1000 in between two 16" on-center studs.
