Did you run conduit, or just do wire behind drywall?
I used 3" conduit, in hindsight I should have used 4".

WOW, 6" conduit!? How deep are your walls? Usually walls are built with 2x4's. Does your theater room have double deep walls?

Not only are the walls deeper than normal they're designed so I can walk in them (just that room) which is to make the electrical easier to get to in case I need to add anything.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO DO. . .but the builder I had was way too inept, also he was charging an arm and a leg for changes of that magnitude to the plan. Are you heating/cooling the in-between space? Seems like that would also be the thing to do.

It's supposed to be air conditioned but I'll see how well that works soon.
