Hello all

So i will have my cables ran in-wall. I've read that 14 gauge speaker wires from any store would be okay. I want to know what brand of hdmi and sub woofer wires would you recomend. I want something well built since it's going to be in the wall and won't be able to swap out easily. Thanks!

Monoprice is a good option for a supplier with good prices. Be careful to ensure that all of your wires and cables are in-wall rated for fire code.

What he said. I also always tests my HDMI and subwoofer cables before I them in the wall. It also a good idea to run a second HDMI cable and a couple cat 6 cables for future proofing.

I have never had a single issue with any Monoprice cables. How long is the HDMI run? For longer runs Bluejeans might be better, but they will cost more.

I'd run 2 - 4 Cat 6 cables along side the HDMI cable before sealing up the wall. If the HDMI cable ever goes bad, you can always use the Cat 6 cable as a back up. They are also nice for future proofing.

Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

I think the Monoprice cable is more than adequate with that length.

+1, you should be fine with Monoprice for a 25' run.
