    Hi there,

    I need to run some flat cable to rear speakers and intend to run along the top of the skirting boards - I know there are options wrt single runs of cable but I cant find any biwire options - I dont actually want to biwire but thought I could use the four conductors for the two rear speakers and keep it as neat as possible.

    Any thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Steve.

    It may well work but you're risking crosstalk between the two rears by putting them down the same cable.

    What's the maximum diameter you can fit in there?

    Thanks guys, that helps, I will buy a couple of lengths of different cables to try size-wise.

    Steve.
