Hi folks. I'm reorganizing my wiring behind my component stand and my plan is to have a long run where all 5 speaker's wire will be strung together touching one another in a long string grouped together. Any problem like that with crosstalk or interference with one another? Thanks.

While it's conceivable that there could be measurable levels of crosstalk, I can't imagine that you would ever encounter anything even approaching audible levels with shielded cable. Now, low level interconnects can be another story completely.

I know this is a dumb question but I'm going to ask......what are low level interconnects? EDIT: aka crappy speaker wire?

Oh, sorry! By "low-level interconnect", what I'm referring to would typically be the cables connecting, say, a pre-amp to an amp or a CD player to a receiver, etc., and not the speaker cables.

Okay so you think I'm good grouping speaker wire together. HDMI cables together would have no problem correct?

Yes and yes.

Yeah, a bundled, parallel HDMI run should be AOK.
