More Info

Use the Distribution Hub in any room to easily connect any speakers to your whole-home audio system, without a messy tangle of speaker wire! The rear of the plate features the security and convenience of screw-down connectors for a fast and clean install.

Be sure to order a Wall Box to hold the Distribution Hub
Old Work Brackets are designed specifically for the installation of low-voltage devices such as a cable television, data communication or telephone jacks in an existing wall.

The backless box design accommodates the space and bend radius requirements of coaxial or data/communication cables. It also eliminates the need for metal plates, lags or screws, and can be installed vertically or horizontally.

It met my expectations.
JESUS -- dallas, TX   9/22/2004
Will install in my new home when complete next month. I didn't think I was going to find this item, but thanks to your great website. Your search engine made it easy. Being able to see the front and back of the product really helped make my decision. I will definitely be purchasing more products from after the move-in date.
ROBERT -- de witt, NY   9/15/2004
The hub is vastly cleaner and neater than a hole in the wall or floor and does provide some flexibility for moving components. I would have liked a cable outlet incorporated into the unit.
STEPHEN -- mesa, AZ   9/14/2004
Great application. I tried Home Depot, Lowe's, Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, Fry's Electronincs (LA), and a couple high end shops, and no one had this size hook-up. It would have been even better had it had 8 speaker connections, but it really managed to do what I had hoped.
JOHN -- westford, MA   12/11/2003
good component, convenient and highly functional for my home theater wiring needs.
ROY -- redondo beach, CA   12/10/2003
Products met my expectation in both usage and quality.

DON M -- biloxi, MS   10/10/2003
well constructed and works as expected.
FRED R. -- vail, AZ   10/3/2003
Very professional looking unit. Much better than having 6 wires coming out of the wall. Would like to see it in Ivory or Almond.
KEN -- duarte, CA   8/16/2003
Fits perfectly for my application. Happy.
JAMES -- alexandria, VA   8/14/2003
Worked very well for one room distribution and for this job. Would like to see more connections on a double or triple gang plate. Let me know if you make one now, or if you will in the future?
