Advice: In-wall speaker wires
First question is what gauge of wire should I get for the surrounds? I'll probably be buying everything from monoprice (speaker wire page) unless someone can suggest something more locally that won't be TOO much more.
Generous measurements of wire for each surround speaker at 45ft, so I'll just get a spool of 100ft to be safe. Also should I buy the speaker wire that actually states for in-wall use? Does it matter? The non in-wall speaker wire of the same gauge is actually more expensive for some reason.
100ft 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Loud Speaker Cable (For In-Wall Installation)
100ft 14AWG Enhanced Loud Oxygen-Free Copper Speaker Wire Cable
and last but not least should I add a wall plate to my cart while I'm at it like this one? or do you guys just leave a small hole behind the speaker.
Thanks for any suggestions.
//edit HOLY crap. 100ft spool of wire must be bigger/heavier then I thought. Cheapest shipping option is $32.54!! That's more expensive then the damn item.
