Product Research


7.2Ch Home Theater Wall Plate: Russound's Home Theater Plate (HTP-7.2) is a Decora style double-gang in-wall connection plate designed to allow easy hookup of all the speakers in a 5.1ch or 5.2ch, 6.1ch or 6.2ch, or even up to a 7.1ch or 7.2ch surround sound system. It includes terminals for up to seven speakers and two powered subwoofers.

Independent Design: The Russound's Home Theater Plate (HTP-7.2) consists of two independent single-gain connector plates and one double-gain decora plate. Both connectors plates can be installed in a 2-gang box (sold separately) using the included decora wall plate. Or you can separate the two connectors plates into two single-gang installations (single-gang decora wall plates and boxes sold separately).

  • A-B-C-D Connector Plate: Includes four pair of binding post speaker terminals (labeled A, B, C, D).
  • 1-2-3-4 Connector Plate: Includes three pair of binding post speaker terminals (labeled 1, 2, 3) and two RCA jacks (labeled 4).

Binding Post Speaker Terminals: There are seven pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts that can accept 16-12AWG speaker wire, spade-lugs, pin-connectors, as well as single or dual banana plugs. The binding post terminals are double-sided for easy connection. They are also color-coded (Red = Positive, Black + Negative) for easy identification. The binding posts have 7/16" hex nuts for easy and secure connections. The posts have lock nuts to prevent them from turning as you tighten the binding posts onto the wire.

Note: The spacing between the binding posts is narrow, so we don't recommend pin-connectors and spade-lugs.

Dual RCA Connectors: Two gold-plated RCA jacks provide connection for two powered subwoofers. The RCA jacks are double sided for easy connection and use female RCA connectors. Designed for powered subwoofer connection, these connectors can be used with any RCA compatible connection.

Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

I apologize for the basic question, but I am far from an expert in this field. The speaker wire is installed and we have this wall plate. We have the receiver, but what do I need to connect the two? I presume there is a cable between the wall plate and the receiver, but I am unsure the specifics of it? Thanks in advance!

Use the search feature on the Crutchfield web site for banana plugs and speaker wire.
[ MICHAEL  Jan 19, 2022 ]
Crutchfield has speaker cable assembles with banana plugs that you can use to connect to the wall plate. The wall plate is for surround sound speakers that are in your walls and pre wired. I have two front and two rear speakers so I have 8 recepticles for them on the right. You can make your own custom length cable assemblies by purchasing 14 or 16 gauge speaker wire on a reel and however many banana plugs you need and Crutchfield carry's those as well.
[ MICHAEL  Jan 19, 2022 ]
You need to run your speaker wire from the receiver to the wall plate that matches with the corresponding speaker.
[ Jonathan  Jan 19, 2022 ]
Strip the ends of the speaker wire and screw the exposed wiring into each terminal on the back of the plate. Order banana clips for the wiring from the receiver to the plate and clip into the corresponding connections.

is this item available in black?

It is not offered in black and we don't have any others that are similar to it and offered in black at the time of this reply. The availability may change in the future and we recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to check

What kind of connector is on the backside?
[ Chris  Dec 31, 2020 ]
1 answer
The exact same that's on the front actually! It screws out, insert bare wire, screw back.
[ Matthew  Dec 31, 2020 ]
Is there a similar product for a 7.2.4 setup, or should I be combining this with another wall plate?
[ Nick7  Oct 20, 2020 ]
1 answer
We have not found a one wall plate that has connections for a 7.2.4 system and recommend using a second wall plate with this one for the Atmos speakers
