    Posted in cable forum as well but just realised its probably better in here! doh!!

    I am soon to be re-laying wooden floor and putting new skirting in my living room. Whilst I am doing this I thought it would be the perfect time to hide away some speaker cables.

    I basically need to run cables to the back of the room and to the front left and right speakers. What I need to knnow is the following:

    1) Would flat cables be best or could I use normal cables and just lay them between the underlay so as not to cause lumps in the floor?

    2) Where can I purchase speaker terminals, as you would find on the back of speakers build in to plastic squares, that I can attach to the skirting board so that I can plug the speaker cables in to these? Bi-wired ones would be preferable.

    Any otehr little tips would be welcome :)
