I am rewiring my family room to hide the wires going to the surround speakers (FXi30). I have use 12 gauge wire to all speakers in the past but it may be tough to pull 12 gauge through the ceiling and over ductwork. I am thinking of going with 14 gauge for the surround speakers. The 14 gauge would be connected to a wall plate and then I would use my left over 12 gauge to run to the receiver - any problem there or should I get additional 14 gauge to run to the receiver? Also should the wire distance to each surround be the same or doesn't it matter? One will have a 35' run the other a 50' run.
