    I'm looking to get a new carpet and so would like to put my existing cables underneath. At the moment I'm only using the rear speakers supplied with my television but hope to get some better speakers later (maybe some KEF eggs or something like that) so I will buy the cable now and install it for future use.
    What cable should I get with this in mind ?

    Ixos 607 is flat with a self adhesive strip down one side and is ideal for under carpets.

    I am using Ixos cable, with KEF's, at present, sound quality is excellent.

    Another quick dumb question:-
    I will get the cables terminated before installing. Do amps and speakers all use the same kind of "banana plug thingies" these days ?

    I will be using QED Micro Biwire with Airloc termination for my rear centre. In my opinion you should spend more per metre on your front speaker cables.

    You could also try THIS speaker cable from QED, it's very thin, I have already got it under my carpet.It's also flexible enough to turn quite tight corners which is a great advantage.Plus the price isn't to expensive, seeing as the rear speakers normally have the longest run length.Just have a look and see.I'm more than happy with it.

    Most do, but check before you buy. I have a Pioneer amp, but before you can insert a banana plug into the speaker terminals, you have to remove a black plastic insert, which is inside each speaker terminal. Best to use a small screwdriver, or even the plastic top off of a cheap pen, to do this. A bit fiddly, but shouldn't take you too long.
