    I'm looking at running my wire for my surround back channels in a straight shot behind me, where do you get those plastic covers that cover the wire? They are about 2 inches wide and can run on the floor to cover the cables.

    Home Depot? Any ideas!

    Thanks.

    Office Max and Office Depot have the cable tunnels that lie flat,if that's what you're thinging of. The trick with those is to get them to lie flat - the ones I've had have a tendency to curl. You can also get hollow split tubing at Radio Shack or Ace Hardware, but then you've got a 1" tube to step over. Hope this is of some help.

    Yep, it's that flat cover I'm talking about.

    How much does that stuff run per foot money wise ???

    You can also compare what http://www.milestek.com/ has in the way of cable management stuff and prices. Also can look at Office Depot's site too.

    I agree with Larry about the curling. When I have bought this item before, it came rolled up and never did quite lay flat.
