I need to run about 25 ft of cable under my carpet for the subwoffer. Any tips - gauge - inexpensive - no monster - Home Depot or Lowes?

Electrically, the cable will be fine for the sub, but I would expect its way too thick to go un-noticed under the rug.


Do you have any options to run it along the baseboards?

Ronjon, what is the floor made of? Concrete slab? Basement?


As an afterthought, I decided I wanted base shakers in my chairs... we're in the middle of a new construction, and have a 10" concrete slab basement floor.


My builder is going to simply grinde/router out a small groove from the seating area back to the AV stand in which to recess the shaker cable.. on top of that, he'll plaster the cable smooth in the groove so it will be un noticed under the carpet.


Is this an option for you?

The floor is concrete slab covered bya pad and carpet. Although I couldn't cut a groove in the cement I did cut out a groove in the pad, used flat cable, and then put masking tape over this to prevent movement. Unfortunately, you can still feel it when you walk on it.
