My wife and I are in the process of building a new house. The house will be done in about a month. They just finished drywalling this past week. I chose to not prewire in the walls of our family room because we have an unfinished basement that will be finished in a year or two (hopefully) and will be strictly for home theater. I went along with my wife's wishes...she did not want holes in her walls where the rear speaker wires had been once we move everything to the basement. Plus the way the room is set up we would have had trouble wiring behind the drywall in a couple of places due to ventilation ducts and a fireplace. I had planned on getting some of the white flat Monster speaker wire and running it along the baseboards for the rears...you wouldn't really notice it unless you looked closely. This would do for a year or so. However, I am now considering running the rear speaker wire under the carpet. Any suggestions on the best way to do this and how I should "nail" it in place under the carpet? I read some of the earlier posts regarding this, but they usually dealt with running the wire if the carpet has already been laid. I figure once we move the equipment to the basement I will just cut the wires and leave the wiring under the carpet. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
