Installing a ceiling fan means a new sound system?

I don’t get this, but perhaps that is because I didn’t major as an electrical engineer? The den here at GamersCircle HQ needed to have a new fan and light combo installed. The new one has been sitting on the floor in the box for about 6 months now and has been searving a very good purpose, “A Shelf!!”

This long weekend, I thought that it would be time to hook it all up. It wasn’t really hard, just never really did anything like that before. Did all the right things, powered down all of the printers, all of the computers, the tivo.. you know.. Then I went out to the breaker box and located the correct breaker, turned it off. (knew I had the right one, as the UPS units were chiming away)

Spent the next hour, taking apart the old ceiling fan, removing it from the ceiling (wow it was dusty up there) assembling the replacement unit, fishing the wires through all of the cosmetic pieces, getting it all wired up, making a couple of tests before I get it all sinched up and mounted. No one died, no cuts, no bruises, no electrical shock. It was a pretty successful endeavor all and all.

However; when I went to fire up the computer, the printers and all. It would seem that the Klipsch Promedia 4.1 didn’t want to give me any sound. I unplugged it a couple of time, opened it up to check the fuse, didn’t see anything wrong. (Shoulder shrug!)

It was off to my local Best Buy to see what they had to offer. I decided to go with the Logitech Z-5300e 5.1 THX setup.
