When Ray Coronado wanted to put a home theater system in his home, he didn’t mess around. Although he needed a little help from a contractor and an electrician, Coronado got himself deep into the nuts-and-bolts of the installation. At one point, Coronado took on the daunting task of installing all of the system’s speaker wiring, networking lines, and projector cables himself. The entire project took three years and cost $50,000. But by working closely with the contractors, talking with friends who were also self-admitted “theater geeks”, and learning new skills, Coronado was able launch a home theater consulting business after the installation was completed.
