    Default Need Cable Raceway with a Cap

    I am running 3 speaker cables, a sub cable, a HDMI cable, and a Wii cable along a wall due I do not want to drill thru the studs and fish the cables thru the holes. The wall itself is UNFINISHED on one side.

    I need a CABLE RACEWAY to be mounted on the wall which includes a finished CAP / END point to terminate the raceway in the middle of the wall....any ideas?

    I guess the 2nd option is to build-out a dry-walled raceway/run to run the cable along the wall.

    Either way, if I run all these cable within the wall studs, I see myself regretting it someday....

    Any ideas appreciated....

    Home Depot has wire channels with covers, caps etc. Usually plastic, can be painted and look decent. Just an idea.

    Agreed. I am picking up some more to do my speaker cable tonight since the carpet in my house was installed very tight to the wall and I cant route wire underneath the baseboard.

    It can be painted as well and I have done this a couple different times.

    Just to stress this point though, make sure its got adhesive on it . My wife bought some without it and didnt realize it till she got home. Or if it doesnt have any adhesive backing, just buy some 3m double sided adhesive stuff on a roll and your good.

    Wire Mold makes all kinds of raceways,fittings and thresholds. Also all alarm supply houses have plastic self stick raceways which when you snap the cover off you can also screw down.

    Wanting to swap / upgrade the speaker cables....possibly. Maybe not....since this part of the project is to add a dedicated music room on the other side of the existing HT room, I may just run the speaker cables it the wall with the sub cable. Be done with it and focus on building up the 2 channel gear.

    I just bought one of those 90 degree drill bits since I am going to have alot of wire to run anyway....curious as to how it works.

    F-1 I was thinking the same thing. You would think a drill and a 3/4" or 1" flat bit through the studs and take all the low voltage wire you might ever need. Phones,cable, stereo. Because I rent and also have steel door frames I couldn't pull the baseboard or door mouldings. I got a stand alone threshold from Home Depot, drilled my own holes and ran every low voltage wire I had coming from the bedroom and the other side of my living room with the friend of cable runners everywhere, tyraps.

    If your planning to go in wall, here is what I would do.

    1. Get some decent CL 2 or CL 3 in wall rated speaker cable from a reputable dealer.
    2. Use Wall Plates from Monoprice where the wire enters and exits the wall.

    I started working on it....I added a 3rd 2-gang box with a Monoprice faceplate which requires no extra splicing.
    The front 3 channels - 11awg copper, Monster SW1000 sub cable (on way), and 2 (1 extra for future use) hdmi are all getting run through the studs.

    The surrounds wire and hdmi to the PJ are going vertical so that one is easy.

    That leaves a CAT6 for Roku and Wii remote sensor wire, which are easy....

    Question - do 2 14 AWG copper wires twisted together equal 11 AWG?

    Much better than the raceway idea. Raceway should really be used if you have 0 options and as you see w/ the right tools drilling and boxing makes for a cleaner pro looking job. Just make sure all your boxes are at the right height and don't cheat by using the romex holes.
