5. Home Theater
One source of trouble for your home theater is Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) caused by electrical fields that are a part of modern life. They can enter a video cable and cause static or other problems. If a component video cable is long enough (2-meters or more), it can become an antenna and attract external EMI noise. CableOrganizer carries properly shielded cable to protect against external EMI.

10. Mounting Speaker Wires for Your Home Theater
We all know how important the home theater sound system is to creating the perfect environment. Running speaker wire or some other form of cable around your house is easier with wire organizers like cable clips, cable saddles and cable clamps. For example, clips can hold one or two wires and guide them along a desired route unobtrusively, and keep your wires neat and tidy. They have an adhesive backing which means you can mount the cable clips on walls, baseboards, ceilings, desks or any other surface. By organizing your speaker wire and protecting it from foot traffic, you keep your wires in top condition and you don´t risk yanking wires out of your speakers every time you cross the room.
