Premium Flat-Panel TV + 5-Speaker A/V Installation
Our take on the Premium Flat-Panel TV + 5-Speaker A/V Installation by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Today's hectic lifestyles mean we can't always find the time or energy to do all the things we'd like to. But why deny yourself and your family and friends the enjoyment of a high-definition TV or multichannel surround sound system just because you don't have time to install the gear? Let INSTALLS inc take the hassle and worry out of installation so you can get straight to the fun.
Note: INSTALLS inc uses a network of independent contractors who are unaffiliated with Crutchfield, and we are unable to evaluate each individual contractor.All home theater and flat-panel TV installations include:
- Pre-installation phone survey to review actual work to be performed and to confirm installation appointment.
- A pre-installation site survey upon the installer's arrival at your home will be completed, and if applicable, any additional charges will be quoted and approved prior to the start of the job.
- Programming of up to two non-learning remote control devices to operate connected components.
- Cleanup of work area, including removing any packaging from your home.
- Limited professional installation labor warranty for one year.
- Obtain your satisfaction sign-off on completed work order.
- Connecting your newly purchased audio and/or video components in one room.
- The integration of newly purchased audio and/or video component(s) into a preexisting, functioning system, located in the same room. Audio or video components include: TV, VCR, DVD, DVR, Internet TV, video game unit, audio receiver, amplifier, CD player, CD recorder, audio tape deck, MiniDisc player, home theater speaker system, and/or home-theater-in-a-box.
- Mounting up to five (5) speakers (mounting brackets not included) on wall or ceiling.
- Neatly connecting and grouping all wires, and concealing speaker wires in walls, ceiling, or using wire management system.
- Finishing off all wall fished cables with either a wall bushing or a wall plate.
- Utilizing installer-provided matching or paintable track molding, if the wall has inadequate access for standard wall fishing.
- Two-Man crew arrival on-site, where TV has already been delivered.
- Securing the customer-provided mounting bracket to standard frame or masonry wall.
- Mounting and securing the flat-panel display screen.
- Connecting the flat-panel system to a preexisting AC power supply using neat wire management (cord not concealed in wall).
- Concealing customer-provided cables in a standard frame wall, from the tuner source to the flat-panel screen, up to 15 feet. In locations with inadequate access for standard wall fishing, or walls with insulation, vapor barriers, or any other obstruction, the wire may be concealed by installer-provided track molding.
- Installation of a set-top tuner, if available.
- An educational demonstration of the newly purchased flat panel TV and components (up to 20 minutes).
