Hey, just starting my home theater and have a few questions.
I am adding a home theater to an existing finished basement, so it's making it a bit harder to run the wire like I wanted.
First right under my screen is a power outlet, so there is an electrical line running down the wall, just off center of my screen behind the wall. I am going to buy 12 gauge cl2 speaker wire, and am wondering how close can the speaker wire run to the electrical wire. Because the center channel of the speaker would be just to the left of the stud that the electrical wire is held. It'll be maybe 7-8 inches from the wire for a few feet and then 15 inches for 5 feet or so. Then when it comes through the top of the frame another electrical wire will cross it at a 90 degree angle.
Do I need to worry about interference?
If u look in the picture, the speaker wire will come up right there by the electrical.
Then it'll run above all the joists and ill staple it to every other joist there.
See any issues with either of this situations?
