    Has anyone had any experience with this cable? I am wiring my 2 surround speakers on the walls and cannot drill or run wire underneath carpet. So I need to run it along the ceiling and want it to me as inconspicuous as possible.

    Thanks all.

    I've used both the IXOS and the flat Monster cable. Both worked well, although the obvious IXOS advantage is the self adhesive. It's a tad messy, though, and I found my fingers getting sticky (and attracting dust, lint, etc.) during the entire process. Still much easier than the Monster, though. With the latter you have to deal with tacking it down, and I also found that you had to stretch the cable very tight in order to eliminate sagging that could occur between tack points. Finally, the IXOS uses heavier gauge wire, which is an obvious advantage for longer pulls.
