I'm going to be building a deck soon and I want to hang the outdoor speakers I bought last year on the house under the covered area. I will need about 75' per wire, rough estimate, so not quite sure what would be the best gauge.
The run will be as follows:
Indoor: from wall-plate, into basement, through basement ran against joists, then out a hole drilled into house.
Outdoor: Probably I'll tack it to the joists on the deck, then I'll run it up the 6x6 support for the roof (which will get a PVC cover so you won't see it), into the soffit, then tacked to the roof beems and out the soffit into the speaker.
So, I'm not sure what rating wire I'd need for this to both meet code, and have it not degrade being exposed to the elements under the deck. It won't be buried, but it will be exposed....
Any ideas? I'm sure this is easy to find once I know what exactly I'm looking for. Will standard in-wall rated wire be OK, or is there something else I want? Is direct burial overkill? If not, is all/any direct burial wire able to be installed in-wall and meet code?
