A/V Tech New Orleans Area

Anyone know of someone who specializes in TV installation and integrating with ceiling mounted speakers?

Looking at buying a new TV and all the wires are run behind the wall over to a location seperate from the TV where they exit to a receiver. I'm thinking the receiver may be redundant? Either way I need some assistance in getting everything installed and integrated. May look at updating the ceiling speakers as they are probably 15yrs old at this point.

Not precisely. Depends to what extent I want to go. I absolutely need some help getting the existing wiring organized and linking the new tv to the ceiling speakers.

I think someone who knows what they are doing would be able to do it within an hour or two. What's an A/V tech charge for 2 hrs of service?

re: A/V Tech New Orleans Area
Are you not looking to purchase a TV and receiver too ? Figure that into the budget too.

How many speakers do you have ?

TV Purchase will be somewhere around $1,500 +/- $300

I have a receiver already but not sure if I need to keep it. I'm assuming if I have one then I might as well use it if there is benefit to doing so.

I already have speakers in the ceiling that came with the house when I bought it. House was built in 2009 so I'm assuming they are original to house. If there is a discernible difference then I may want to tack on another $500 to put in new ceiling speakers. There's 6 in total I believe.

Speakers should be fine, depending on how old your receiver is you will probably want to upgrade there. Are the speakers arranged in a surround sound configuration or do you just have pairs randomly through the house ?

The receiver location is likely not redundant, just remotely located. I have my entire system in a data cabinet in my laundry room, and only my TV and speakers are in the living room.
I'd be happy to take a look at it. We are out of Prairieville, but we do cover the NOLA area.

Thanks for advising. Will give you a ring when I get it together.

The wires run out of an adjacent wall currently (TV mounted over fireplace) and into a media center. The wires are unorganized and it's a clusterfrick and am not sure what purpose each wire serves.

That receiver should be fine for now. Will also want a sub and a way to control everything.
