All,


I am currently in the process of building a new home. I can run the low voltage wiring before the drywall goes up. After some research on this wonderful forum, I am thinking about using the following speaker wire:

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=100-740


Is this wire OK? Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Since, my HT will be located in the basement, I would also like to run a wire for the AM/FM antenna in the Attic.


What type of wire should I run (~40ft)?


What antenna can I use for this (powered, un-powered etc)?


Thanks in Advance.

:confused:

I have the same wire from Parts Express, but in a 14 gauge. I bought 500 feet. Just got my speakers hooked up, and it works well. Someone mentioned to me that shielded cable might reduce electrical interference, but this cable is working just fine for me.

While I usually purchase my stuff from Parts Express, I decided to go with the typical Phillips wire 14 Gauge sold in Home Depot. Works just as good but cheaper.
