    Hi,
    I would like to use white flat speaker wire for my surrounds or some other similarly least obtrusive wire. What would be the best place to get a spool of high quality, but economical (not more than 1$/foot) wire of that kind?
    THe second questions is that I have my mains and center connected through 12 ga wire already and I would like to keep it this way. Is it a very bad idea to have surrounds hooked up through different wire than other speakers?

    30 feet of AR flat 16 gauge terminated in pins for ten bucks here.

    Is it a very bad idea to have surrounds hooked up through different wire than other speakers?
    Doesn't matter and I wouldn't sweat the gauge difference either if you go 16 gauge for the rears. It's not an audible difference and in the end you're going to balance your system anyways.
