    So I’m doing my basement and have it all framed in. Just received my speaker wire from Blue Jeans Cable and am ready to do the runs. My contractor is using the metal studs with the pre-drilled holes. My question; can I route the speaker cables through the same hole as the electric cable or can that induce interference?

    Thanks,
    wally

    no you should NOT run your speaker cable through the same holes as your electricity. All kinds of potential for problems. Pick another hole (or make one) perferable more than 18" away from the holes with your electricity. If you need to cross your speaker runs over your electricity, do it at 90 degrees. Good luck.
