    Rather than start to dig out channels in the wall, I need to run speaker cable to wall mounted Mission FS1 speakers (front and rear).

    I was hoping to use flat speaker cable (which can be painted), but the Mission cable has special connectors, is not (very) flat, and will not therefore 'blend in' with the wall!

    Can anyone recommend decent, easy to fit, discreet, paintable trunking that will allow me to hide the cable as best I can.

    Cheers

    Try plumb centre or other diy shops or electrical shops, they sell trunking for pipes and cable in different sizes, you may have to put a primer on it to paint though as they are usually plastic.

    I have just gone through a similar thing and have trunking running under the pelmet by the ceiling for all 6 of my wall mounted speakers.

    I bought self adhesive trunking from Homebase, comes in 2M strips and was about £6 per strip.

    Bloody superb stuff and made me look like quite the DIY God (which I really am not and it is so simple to use!!). Looks tidy and dont really notice it except to admire my handy work!!

    Hope that helps.
