Guide to Home Theater Wiring & Component Repair Costs
Having a home theater system can be a great luxury that you and your family enjoy on a regular basis. A home theater system generally consists of a large-screen television and high-quality speakers installed around the room to produce surround sound. In some cases, a projector may also be suspended from a wall or ceiling, though this depends on the type of home theater system that is installed. Most of the time, the wiring for speakers and other components of a home theater system is installed within the walls. While this makes it possible to hide the wires from plain view, it can also make it a pain when repairs are needed.

Common Types of Home Theater Repairs
The most common repair that many home owners need to have done with a home theater system is that of repairing bad wiring. Rodents living within the walls may chew up the wires over time, or they may simply go bad on their own. As a result, in order to access the wires and repair them, walls may need to be cut into. For this reason, such home theater repair is generally not recommended as a DIY project. Instead, it is best to call a professional to repair the wiring or any other components of the home theater system that have gone bad.
The Cost to Repair Home Theater Wiring & Components
Many home owners assume that, because the repair involves cutting into the walls, that such services would be very expensive. As a result, they end up leaving their home theater systems in disrepair. What many home owners do not realize, however, is that the average home theater component or wiring repair costs under $200. In most cases, the price is closer to $150.
Of course, there are many different factors that can influence the actual cost of the repair. Some of these include how much of an access problem exists when it comes to reaching the wires and how severe the problem is. For example, it is less expensive to have one wire replaced than three or four of them.
Finally, the age of the home theater system being repaired can influence price as well. Older systems tend to require parts that are more rare to come by and are thus more expensive. Still, home owners can expect to spend under $300 on such repairs.
