I'm trying to conceal the speaker wires as much as possible, as part of a room makeover. Have decided to keep the speakers on either side of the fireplace for now, and am wondering if there are any better ideas than I can come up with. Going to use Blue Jeans terminated Belden 10-gauge 5T00UP.
I'm including the photo from my other, speaker thread. The equipment rack will probably still be in the left or right corner, so only need to hide one wire to the opposite corner area.
The options considered so far are to run the wire under the carpet, outside the hearth, using 16' of wire. Worried it might be lumpy under the carpet. What I'm inclined to do right now though, is run the wire through the wall (I already have through-wall access plates near each corner) into the garage, and around the back of the zero clearance fireplace, requiring 20' of wire minimum. I think equal length speaker wires are desirable, but that's going to be a lot of excess wire to the near speaker.
I thought of dropping it through the floor, but not excited about crawling under the house. Anyway, just checking for any better ideas.
