    What is the mains cable reccomended as a budget option for surrounds? I have some 24 amp 2.5mm twin & earth but it seems mighty huge for such a task?
    Thanks for any advice,
    Nick

    Twin and Earth generally refers to solid core ... flex is what you want ... and you only need 2 core ... and 1.5mm2 will be fine.

    Alternatively B&Q [Edit B&W!! I fink Vikki needs new typing paws, Steph] do 25m of 79strand cable for £10 which is fine for the money (I use it for rear cabling) ... or look at Richer Sounds range.
