    Hi everyone,

    I am currently building our home and the drywall is going on very soon in the HT room. Can you guys suggest what in-wall speaker cable to get that does the job and the price is right? My fronts are DefTech BP2000. The run from the rack to the front is about 35-40ft.

    Thanks a lot, Mark

    Use a decent brand that you trust. Just make sure it is CL3 rated for in wall use. I used Monster Cable XP CL3, clear jacketed 12 gauge on a 100 ft. roll. Its cheaper that way, about a buck a ft.
    You might also want to run a hollow tube, or raceway, in case you want to change or add cable at a later date.

    Whatever they sell at Parts Express. 12G if you think lots of copper makes a difference. 18G if you don't care about lots of copper.

    Currently, there's 16G wired by the builder but it looks so thin and flimsy...it can't possibly be great for sound could it??

    I have used this wire Impact Acoustics & really like it. If you use a link found at the Audioholics site you can save some additional $.

    Dave, this is great. Thanks for the link...ordered 250ft only $100, that's including shipping. Now, I hope it comes in time. [​IMG]
