The previous owner of our house had the basement wired for surround sound for a home theater. He used 14g wire which terminates into speaker connector wall plates on the ceiling, he was planning on doing HT in the future and did not want wires hanging through the ceiling so he installed the wall plates. These are then wired to a location near the television where they terminate into another wall plate. My question is, how much signal loss would there be with the use of these wall plate connectors? I'm not really into "Hi-Fi", so to speak, so for surround sound would the average person notice any appreciable signal loss do to there usage? Let me know if this is confusing, I'm a newbie to HT.
