15m Cables for Yamaha AV 59 - Help!

I need x2 lengths of 15m for the rear speakers for my new Yamaha AV 59 system. Need to route it around walls and door frame so has to be flexible.

Also don't want to spend a fortune, but still get good performance although I'm still using the supplied cables for the other 3 speakers and sub.

Any of these any good for my needs?

Any better solutions that won't drain my last few pennies? Will a slightly better gauge make any difference if I don't upgrade the front speaker cables?

<Sigh> I know you've all been there, but didn't realise I'd be forking out £150 on all the cables I'd need too :rotfl:

For the type of speakers you are using the first choice should be OK, if you have a local Richer Sounds Gale 105 and 189 cable @69p and 99p per metre.

Running your cables, if you have carpet installed the trick I use is lift the edge, and with a stanley knife cut away half an inch of the underlay that sits next to the gripper rod and run your cables that way, all nicely hidden and not plastered around door frames, to put carpet back in place just use a bloster cheisel to pack it back in at the edge. If you have drylined walls where the rears fit with a bit of fiddling you should beable to get the cable to run down the back of the plaster board. SORRY if none of the above applies.
