I'm getting ready for a couple of different wiring jobs, one for my surrounds (time to get the wires off my floor! ) and one for my sister's mains, which will be wall-mounted. I already have the wire (14 gauge in-wall variety), but have questions on how to terminate them: 1) For my surrounds, I'm gonna have wall plates with binding posts by the receiver and each surround. What type of connection to the speaker wire should I use inside the walls? I'm looking for the most reliable and trouble-free type of connection between the wire and the plate. I'm thinking that spade lugs soldered to the wire are probably best. Any thoughts? 2) For wall-mounted speakers, how do you get the wire from inside the wall to the speakers? Especially for small speakers, it makes no sense to have a full-size wall plate there. Do you just put a grommet in the wall and run the in-wall wire right out to the speaker? Do any wall mounts have a built-in guide to take the wire from the wall to the speaker? That's it for now. Thanks for any help!
