Recessed Low Voltage Media Plate w/ Duplex Surge Suppressor - White
Tired of seeing cables running down the wall from your wall mounted HDTV? Get a professional looking installation with the cables and power running through the walls with this recessed wall plate from Monoprice!
This wall plate includes both a low-voltage opening for your audio and video cables and a dual-receptacle surge protector to provide power and power protection for your display. The wall plate comes with mounting hardware and detailed installation instructions, including a cutout template to ensure that you cut a hole in the wall that is the perfect fit. It mounts to the wall using lugs that grip the drywall from behind, so no additional mounting holes or wall anchors are needed.
The duplex surge receptacle is rated for 15 amps/125 volts. The replaceable SurgeBloc® is rated for 340 joules and can handle a peak suppression voltage of 1,000 VAC and a maximum surge current of 12,000 amps. An audible alarm will sound when the surge protection has been expected and the SurgeBloc® needs replacing.

I was able to remove the surge suppressor/outlets and put them in a standard-size double box behind a brass [which color is appropriate to my room] plate, with HDMI cable, ethernet cable, and center-speaker wire coming out of the other side of the plate. Doesn't look too bad when the screen is pulled away from the wall other times, it's hidden.
At the local supplier, a suitable surge suppressor outlet was considerably more expensive than the whole kit from Monoprice.
