Default Central vac install question

I'm attempting to install a Cana Vac central vac in my new home, which has the piping already roughed in. So far I've mounted the tank in the garage, wired it & ran the PVC piping in the garage to the tank.

The rough-in came with 2 inlets per floor, but in the basement there are 2 PVC pipes coming down vertically from the ceiling. Are these 2 pipes the ones from the first floor, which have to be routed to the garage? Both of these 2 pipes have low-voltage cable on them, do these also have to be routed to the garage?

Appreciate the help everyone!

Yes, tie them together and route them to the c-vac.

Good choice on the cana-vac.

Hope you didn't glue the pipe in the garage together yet. You need to tie the ones coming into the garage from the basement to any drops already in the garage
