Hello,


First home buyer...setting up the basement with an okay setup.


I have a Yamaha V575...I don't have speakers yet.


Just wanted to double check that I am buying the correct speaker cable. I bought the below 16g:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0044YPN0A/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?qid=1394977599&sr=8-3&pi=SY200_QL40


I will be running this through my drywall about 25 ft to the rear speakers.


I'll only be using 5.1 for my TV and will be setting up the other 2 speakers to use in another room (if possible).


Will that wire work for me or should I be looking at something else?


I'm open to speaker suggestions also-not looking for anything great, just somewhere between entry level and mid-level to get my home theater going for now. Probably looking at spending about $700 or so for the speakers + subwoofer. About a 12' x 12' viewing area for the TV room. The room is actually bigger, probably about 33' x 24'


I appreciate any help. Really just need the wire question answered if possible.


Thanks

If its in the wall then it has to be code. To be sure use cable marked CL2 or CL3:
