    Hello everyone, first post :)

    I'm in the process of re-decorating the lounge and am burying the cables in the plaster, the problem I have however is that the plaster isn't deep enough to hide 10mm trunking. I've found 8mm but that's still a bit close to the surface.

    What other options do I have? Although it's far from ideal, is it safe to bury surround speaker cables in the plaster without any protection? This may be the only option left as chiseling through brick doesn't seem to be a goer :(

    I`ve just done the same.. 2 runs of 6ft for the rears - solid brick

    2 runs of 45mm X 35mm, 3ft long, for the power cable and video cables - solid brick.

    It was hard work for a girl.. :rotfl:

    I personally would not just plaster over the cables but couldn`t tell you if this actually damages them in any way.

    My lighting cable has been plastered straight into the wall and it looks like it`s been there for a few years and is still surviving.

    The choice is yours..
