Hello there.
I have my wall opened currently to run some cat6 cables.
in my living room, I am planning on running 2 HDMI fiber cables from one side of the room to the other to carry signals to a projector or another integrated amp.

2 Cat6, 2 HDMI, what else would be useful to have?
juste a few pairs of 12-gauge? anything else for possibly subwoofers, speakers etc...?

Thanks for any suggestions you may have.

A run of empty conduit with fish tape pre-run...? Who knows what you'll need...

conduit with pre-run fish tape is a great idea.

bonus question: If I run HDMI fiber optics, do I need special outlet plates?
Are HDMI optics working only with specific device that would power them?
