Have you ever tried (unsuccessfully) to wire your own system?

What about hiring a CE pro to come out and tackle a complicated wiring job?

While CE pros almost always do great work, there’s always that one installer who just doesn’t care.

Either of those scenarios could leave you with a rat’s nest of wires in the basement or a bird’s nest of wires under the stairs, possibly affecting system performance.

And fixing such a mess is no easy task.

We’ve rounded up 10 of the worst wiring jobs ever, ranging from systems destroyed by floods to an award-winning CE pro who is ashamed to admit he owns such a disastrous system.

Take a mental note of these horrific jobs, and make sure your system never ends up on our list.
