We are in the midst of building our first house and had a few simple questions on a pre-wire. As far as speaker wire, I was thinking of either going w/ 14g or 16g, but can I run standard speaker wire or does it have to be UL(?) rated? Does this depend on code? I don't want to cause any problems w/ the electricians or the inspection. (Our sales rep @ the subdivision mentioned that we should probably run the wire AFTER the inspection but BEFORE the insulation and drywall are installed. However, I would only have 1/2 day to do it and I would rather run the wire at my own leisure and take my time to do a better job.) We are planning on going w/ Paradigm in-walls for the front and in-ceilings for the rear. Since we only have a width of around 8 ft. to work with, what would you recommend as the space between the front speakers? Should the width between the rears be approximately the same? What about height for the fronts? Any help would be appreciated!!
