Usually, TVs and speakers come with a step-by-step manual to ensure that you mount them right. However, there are still some mistakes that people make during the mounting process. In some cases, people have to halt their work, correct the wrong steps and start over again. What’s really unfortunate is that some people don’t realize the fault until their TV and speakers fall on the floor!
Therefore, you must avoid making these mistakes to get the most of the amount you have spent on the product and get the maximum performance out of it. Here are a few tips AV Connect has put together to help you prevent costly errors when mounting your TV and speakers.
1. Forgetting the studs when hanging a TV
Many times people do not find ALL the studs required to mount a TV. To correctly find the studs, you need a stud finder or a magnet. Failure to do so will result in the TV falling off the wall.
2. Failing to run long enough cables for the TV
People tend to use short wires because it is what they have around the house. These wires then won’t reach your TV, or if they do, you will still find it incredibly hard to service the equipment.
3. Not asking for help
TVs can be heavy. Trying to power lift it on a mount and then missing it can be disastrous. You can easily find the right person for the job through a quick internet search or by asking a friend or two, and then you won’t need to spend hours on end watching online instructional videos or scouring the hardware store for some random tool you may never use again.
4. Leaving wires exposed
When hooking up speakers to a receiver, many times, the wire is stripped back way too far, leaving the copper exposed, which could cause electrical fires or short circuits. Professional installers not only have the knowledge to be more efficient, but they can provide you with options you might not be aware of. A professional will also help you avoid spending on unnecessary repairs and safety hazards.
5. Not deep-diving into settings
After everything is installed, it is now time for finesse work. Get in “under the hood” and make it personal for you to use. As a newbie, you might not even know how to customize your set-up to your liking. A professional knows the ins and outs of different TVs and speakers out there. There is a higher chance of them doing a better job than you.
