    Default Need some speaker cable for surrounds

    About to get the TL350 and I'm going to need some cable for the surrounds.

    Front and centre is going to be easy I shall get some quality cables as I only need very shorts run on each maybe 5-6 feet for each front speakers.

    The advise I need is for the rears I need to find the thinnest smallest WHITE cable I can get away with. I want to glue it under the edge of my crown molding around the living room, it will need to be able to bend to a 90 degree angle in the corners.

    I dont have a path way around the room at floor level I have a mixture of wood and carpet.

    As the surrounds will be near the ceiling it will look better dropping a 6-8 inch cable down the wall rather (I can paint the white to match wall colour) than running six foot cable up the wall to the speaker.

    Also don't have the option to go inside the wall.

    Run length I still need to measure but around 50-60 feet for each surround speaker.

    Any ideas of brand and type?

    Has anyone tried to do this? what might be the best glue I believe the molding is plaster.

    Thanks

    Why not get wireless surrounds?

    + 1 on the wireless idea. Wish I would've gone that way, but back then they were scarce/non-existent (I think).
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    Monoprice in-wall cable has white insulation on it.

    How well do the wireless keep up with timing? Do they slow down when the batteries die or do they need to be plugged into ac? IS there a lag between the wireless and the rest of the connected rig?

    Shouldn't have any lag if everything is done properly. Receiver is self-powered using AC/DC brick. 2.4GHz frequency range is also pretty good (especially compared to 900MHz):
