Just bought a new house:D , and am looking for the best way to get my surrounds hooked up. I have a pair of Monitor 40s that I will be mounting to the rear walls, and I need to get cable to them. This is a brand new house, unfortuantely it was finished out when we bought it, so I couldn't get the builder to run the cable for me. The floor is tile, so no running under the carpet or up next to the base boards. I will be looking to do this in the living area, and going up through the wall from my AVR, into the attic and back dow the rear wall to the speaker. I want to minimize the amount of damage I have to do to the walls if at all possible, after all I have to keep the little woman happy right;). Any ideas, previouse experiences, nightmares or do's and dont's would be greatly appreciated. Also ideas for size of cable to use and brand would help. I was thinking 10 or 12 AWG, I estimate the total run to be about 35 feet or so. I'll try to knock out three birds with one stone here and also ask for suggestions on mounting brackets for the Monitor 40s. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
