    Question Speaker Cable For Rears

    I'm curious as to what kind of speaker cable would be decent to run my rears. I just purchased some MIT AVt-2 cables for my fronts, but there is no way i can afford that, or anything like that for my rears. I need 100' of cable, 50' for each speaker because of the way i have them run. Currently i'm using some 16 guage walmart cable, i'd love to get rid of it.

    Any suggestions?

    I ran the Belden 5000 12Ga. in my basement and it seems to have worked out well. Has a nice outer jacket for pulling through studs as well.

    I checked BJC, and it's about $60 for 100' of the 12 ga. belden. I would love them to already be terminated, but the price double just for that..

    its what im using also....BJC sells banana plugs that are easy enough to self install or if you want to "upgrade" try these GLS..they seem to be a favorite around here, i myself use the locking type...BTW the GLS are solderless

    I'm using Audioquest FLX-14/2 really great wire switched from Monster Navaho white 16 gauge. I wish I had gone with the good stuff from the start a lesson learned.

    I found this which doesn't seem that bad. http://www.amazon.com/AudioQuest-14-...r=1-4....which
    But my runs are long so i think 12ga is my best bet.

    I'd love this if it wasn't so expensive...http://www.mitcables.com/?option=com...&product_id=31 :o
    I know it probably doesn't matter, but it would just be nice piece of mind having all my wires the same brand, since my fronts are MIT's.



    I'm just weighing my options.

    Are your cables in-wall, or visible. Blue Jeans Cable has Belden and Canare at reasonable prices. You can terminate the cables yourself with some very basic know-how, supplies are available at parts express.com

    My cables are not in-wall, but only about 10' of each rear cable is visible, near the speakers.
