flat cable

Does anyone use flat speaker cables for their surround sound systems?

I can use any thickness of cable for the fronts but id like to run the rear speaker cable between the carpet and skirting so it needs to be thin or flat.

I know there are varied opinions on how much difference cables make but from what ive read most people agree that a cable needs to be a certain thickness to sound decent. How do these thinner or flat cables perform?

My speakers will be the Kef 3005se's and onkyo 608 amp.

Thanks

Either should be more than adequate given your equipment and application but personally I would favour the thicker copper (latter option)

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the quick reply scorpion.

Any experience with either of them? Just wondering how good the thinner cable is and if itll be possible to stuff the thicker cable down the edge of the carpet.

LOL, if it is shag pile with appropriate underlay probably. TBH either option will do the job but I personally prefer thicker copper.
