    I am doing remodeling right now and I have the walls ripped up pretty good at this point so im Thinking of running speaker wires in-case future Ht setup..

    Heres my newbie question... Do each of the wires that go to a speaker have to go directly back to the receiver or can you do it more like you would with electric romex bring one wire 10-15 feet then make pigtails off of it to send it in different directions to the speakers...

    btw im using 14 gauge wire

    any help appreciated...

    ok hehe you pointed out my newbiness.....

    first of ty for reply, no i made all the splits running electrical wire inside the boxes, Ive been doing all the electric work last few months (just passed inspection) and I guess my brain was still thinking in those terms... one wire can be split off many different directions in electrical wire but not with speaker wire lol.

    so jist is run everything back to the receiver...
