Ive moved quite a few times now and we always try to fully move in instead of living like renters. That means hanging TVs on the walls and in-ceiling & in-wall speakers and all that good stuff.

I like to pick out my own custom gear online but then retail installers like BestBuy and those places want $200 to install each pair of eight speakers. There is no reason for a middle man to be taking the majority of the $. Last time I outfitted a house in SA, I had a guy from Best Buy come and do one pair and he gave me his personal card and came back and did the other speakers on his own. I got lucky.

Can anyone suggest someone who does clean work?

Dominion Home Networks is probably one of the most well respected and professional integration firms in San Antonio. They are doing all the home integration work for a home that I am building in Shavano Park. I had a lot of custom requirements and they handled them all without batting an eye. Here is their site: Dominion Design & Integration

BestBuy doesnt keep all their field people against the wall for you to pick out like cakes in a bakery case. Anyway, Im not that cheap to go in and poach their guys...just thought someone might know some folks. Pretty popular skillset by the city.

That looks more like a Bjorns type service. More looking for a guy to cut speaker holes in the ceiling and drop wires.

This is an overkill suggestion.

I suggest going onto Craigslist and searching for home theater installers. Tons of good techs are there and will get the job done well. Geek Squad is overpriced garbage. I wouldn't touch any associate for an install job from Best Buy with a ten-foot pole.

You can't always just come here for the magical right answer...

Sometimes we must google search, look at websites, put in the legwork and make an educated, informed decision. CL isn't a terrible place if you use your head. Those who don't are usually the ones who end up in a bad situation.
