Default Starting to set movie theatre

Hey! My friend is asking me to help install his new TV set for home theatre on the wall. Do you know some DIY guides or smth? What tools do we need to set in-wall plates and volume controls? Thanks!

If he's just mounting the tv on the wall all you need is a suitable wall mount. There are a number to choose from depending on his preferences. (Does he need it moveable or is stationary ok? Does it need to sit as close to the wall as possible or is a gap ok?) In order to complete this task you'll just need a stud finder, drill, and likely a screw driver.

If you/him plan to install an electrical outlet that will be a whole other endeavor that you'll need to read up on first. Personally, I've installed a number of these in my home...

Power Management

And like them quite a bit. Installation was simple and the end result looked very nice as I use multiple of these...

...throughout my home and so the passive in wall kits simply plug into the corresponding tv outlet on the protector.

Volume control isn't needed as you'll either be using the tv speakers or running an HDMI connection to a soundbar or receiver and then controlling volume via that unit. Many modern tv's automatically sense receivers/soundbars as well allowing volume control to be handled by the tv remote if a person wishes.
