    3-Gang 8.2 Surround Sound Distribution Wall Plate

    This home theater plate provides all the flexibility that a professional installer or experienced do-it-yourselfer needs to create a sophisticated media environment. The plates are easy to terminate and contribute to a neat looking and finished installation. Clear labeling also simplifies room set up and configuration.

    Please Note: The subwoofer connection is an RCA connection on the front and an RCA connector on the back.
     
    This product can either be used with banana plugs (product ID 2801 or 2943) or it can accept bare wire connections on both the front and rear of the plate.
     
    Note:  Not compatible with DUAL banana plugs like PID# 2944 & 2945.  Works fine with individual single banana plugs.

    Need clarification reg mounting box
    The product is great like all the other reviewers have said. What is confusing is the lack of information reg mounting this thing. The product doesn't come with any instructions. If you thought it's a bracket and what else you would need, think again. For those who are doing new work installation ( starting out from studs) the wall plate holes will NOT match the holes of a standard 3 gang box. I roamed the hallways of homedepot, menards and lowes at different locations to no avail. There is a reviewer here that stated to buy a custom box from Home Depot..com. Don't get it. I googled extensively and finally came upon the answer.
    What mono price fails to state or put it in the instructions is that the 3 individual pieces that have the speaker nuts in them have mounting holes that align exactly to the standard 3 Gang box ( blue colored one at the big box stores). So once you have mounted them individually, you can then place the wall plate which screws on to the individual pieces which have holes higher than the standard box to screw the wall plate in. It's like the 2 outlet one gang switch that screw onto the electrical box and the wall plate that screws onto the switch itself. In this case you need to screw all three pieces in order to mount the wall plate. I wish mono price would put in instructions in it rather than saying "fits standard NEMA 3" boxes " which makes you go crazy. Hope this saves you a lot of time. Good luck.

    PROS: Price

    CONS: Lack of instructions.

    Great product, but DOESNT ACCEPT DUAL BANANAS
    When I first received this product I was thoroughly impressed high port density within a 3-gang interface, individual decora type plates (so you can swap in a different fascia plate) and the hardware is all heavy duty and solid feeling.

    This plate is actually an 8.2 format because it accounts for two center channel speakers, as well as dual subwoofer line-level leads. This was perfect for my situation because I have subwoofers in the front and rear of the room and plan on bi-wiring my center channel with dual 8 gauge connections (terminated with banana plugs).

    It all sounds great so far... so why the 7 out of 10 ? you ask?

    The spacing on the binding posts for THIS particular wall plate DOES NOT conform to the standard dual-banana plug spacing. They are too narrow about 1/8 and there is no way to fudge the spacing in any way. This is a critical oversight for what would otherwise be a stellar product. I prefer dual bananas for most speaker connections because they are cleaner and less likely to be pulled out singly, which can lead to short-circuits.

    Strangely, other wallplates that Monoprice offers in this product line dont have the dual-banana plug spacing issue. My installation also includes parts 3325 (dual speaker posts decora), 3326 (quad speaker posts decora), and 3538 (triple speaker posts decora) and all of these conform to the standard dual-banana connector spacing. In looking at the other wallplates in the series, it appears as though the 2-gang 5.1 (part 4012) and 7.1 (part 5140) plates would also have this issue because they share the same decora plates.

    Hopefully Monoprice will update their product listing to reflect this deficiency, or better yet, modify the product specification to conform to a dual-banana spacing.

    RCA connections are removable
    I have always appreciated the products and prices from monoprice. When I viewed this item, it was unclear to me if the RCA connections were removable. I wanted to color code them for my setup... they are both white. When I contacted the chat support and they insisted that they were not removable. This didn't quite make sense to me so I bought it anyway, and was pleasantly surprised that they were and swapped them out. On multiple occasions I have been disappointed with the chat support product knowledge. I am glad I took a chance on this one and it worked out for me.

    Good Quality - not GREAT quality
    Two of the connectors had stripped threads. As I wasn't using all of the available jacks I simply switched them around. This issue would be easy to get by a quality inspection as the defect isn't detectable until you tighten the "nut" against resistance. Other than that, the units are of good quality and offer the flexibility of being able to disassemble the various components and move them around. If you need to get it right the first time I'd recommend buying an extra two or four jack wallplate so that you have the extra pieces if needed. I also ordered seven other two and four jack wall plates and all were perfect.

    8.2 wall plate/jacks
    Disappointed that it arrived with two sets (one extra) of binding posts labeled for the left channels, one set for the right channels but the center/subwoofer posts are missing! Emailed customer service yesterday but haven't received a response yet. Also called but phone hours are M-F.

    5/5
    This is a great product and price. If you are doing a complete in wall/ceiling home theater, you need this! I had 3 wall plates from elsewhere that cost more than double the price and looked terrible. You mount this on a 3 gang electrical box and there are 3 seperate plates that makes installing all those wires much easier. When you are done, it even looks nice, even though it's behind the TV.

    Another great product
    It is a great product. However, I would recommend purchasing the 2 gang wall plate. 3 gang is just big and a two gang would look nicer, but thats the only reason. It works great and is easy to install.

    awesome!
    This home theater wall plate is awesome! All connections are already labeled, so as long has you have a 3 gang box to mount to, you are all set! Works great with banana plugs (for front side and backside) Note: This is actually an "8.2" wall plate as it has rear center speaker in addition to rear surrounds (left and right) and also has 2 subwoofer connections.

    A Serious Connector Plate to finish the look of your system
    Pricing these elsewhere, they were #1 Hard to find. #2 Twice as expensive. & #3 Not nearly as nice looking.

    Plate works great, installed easily (for someone who knows nothing about what theyre doing), and really helps make the new home theater (self installed) look professional. The wife hasnt complained about any of the purchases from Monoprice. Matter of fact, when she bought her first HDTV about 5 years ago, she was sold on $150 worth of Monster cables to connect a TV, a VCR, and a DVR. So, her jaw drops when I tell her I ordered all the speaker wire for 8 speakers and about 350ft of wire, all the HDMI cables, all the optical connectors, and the wall mount for the new plasma for under $200. I love Monoprice! Tell your friends. Dont let anyone buy from BB, CC, or FRYs again!
