If your house will be inspected make sure the speaker wire has a seperate insulating jacket covering the 2 conductor wire. Make sure you use rough in brackets or measure exactly where the wires are located.good luck!
Get in wall speaker wire, type CL3. you'll also need to find out how big of a wire your speakers can use. Remember don't run along electric wires. Speaker wires should be kept away from such sources to keep the signal clean. Check local codes to make sure you are using the right wire. CL3 is usually okay anywhere in the US.
I would suggest that you run PVC tubes with speakerwire in them, that
way you can change wire or add an extra wire later if you find the need.
Also this enables you to use cheap wires now and you won't have any problems if you like to upgrade later.

If you want to do it the safe way so you don't put too much of a load on your amp, connect the positive wire from one speaker to the positive output from your amp. Then connect the negative wire from that speaker to the positive wire of the second speaker. Finally connect the negative wire of the second speaker to the negative output of the amp. This will get sound from both speakers without straining your amp. This is called wiring in series.
Hi. Even though you may need to put new plugs on the ends of the wire, you can still use the wires without having to go out and by new. Places like Radio Shack, Fry's, Ovation, BestBuy, and CompUSA all carry wire plugs that you can install yourself rather easily on the old wires to make them work with the Bose receiver.
Putting plugs on the ends of the wires is really a simple thing to do. Just follow the instruction that comes on the pack, and you should be fine.
I don't blame you for wanting to utilize the old wire, it can get expensive to replace speaker wires.
The plugs are a cheap way of saving wire, and saves you quite a good deal of money as well.
Hmmm. .U don't have option given for speakers to fix them onto the wall. You have to do the following steps.
Things U need are:
UL Class 2 speaker wire
Locate the studs closest to where you'd like to install your speaker. You'll want to install the speakers in between the studs.
Tape the template that comes with the speakers in the center. Check to make sure your configuration is level and plumb. Your template will tell you exactly what size hole to drill to insert the speakers. Trace the opening you need to cut into the wall or ceiling
Cut the hole using a keyhole saw or a drywall saw. Keep the section you cut open in case you can't install the speaker and need to patch the hole you just made. If the hole reveals plumbing, you need to relocate the speaker
Run the speaker wire through the wall, or fish speaker wire from an existing installation.
Install the brackets to support your speaker if one is included with your speakers. Some speakers use clips to secure them to the inside of the wall.
Strip the protective coating from the end of the speaker wire, and insert it into the speaker jacks. Test your speakers now if the wires are attached to an audio source. If not, locate the other end of the speaker wire and hook it up. Testing now will save trouble if you run into problems.
Surround the speaker with insulation to enhance the sound. Secure the speaker into place, and do any necessary patching or painting
There are several settings on the receiver which can affect speaker enabling. These include speaker levels, ambience settings, balance, & fade controls. Run through the various menu commands & settings, & see if you can find one that affects the problem. If this does not solve the issue, & you have double checked your wiring, then the receiver is likely faulty & should be returned under warranty.
There is a CAT5/RJ45 A-Bus interface on the back of the HK AVR 435. That needs to connect to your A-BUS "hub". HK has two hub products: ABH-4000 and ABH-4 (older). Then CAT5 cable can be run from this hub to Wall-installed room-specific controls. HK has the AB-2 product, but any ABus compatible wall control will work. From the wall control, you wire regular audio cable to the speakers. So, some of the questions/issues to solve are: where do the existing wires go that are connected to the in-wall speakers? Typically that location is where to place your in-wall volume and source controls. Then the CAT5 gets wired from those controls back to the hub. And all that's required is a single CAT5 from the AVR to the Hub.
Uhmmm. . .okay. . .I would use nothing less than 16AWG speaker cable. Do not run the speaker cable parallel in close proximity to any AC wiring. Speaker cable rated to run through walls with usually be color coded red and black. Connected the red to the red on the speaker and red on your home theatre receiver. Do the same for the black. If speaker cable insulation is clear, look closely for subtle markings or writing on the insulation. The writing will only be on one of the two wires. Designate that as the POS or PLUS or + or RED. Connected it to the red on the speaker and the red on the back of your home theatre receiver. The other is by default the black and connect it to like colors. Repeat for all 5, or 7 speakers in your theatre. Your subwoofer probably has a seperate amplifier, so it gets it's power from it's own AC power plug. . .so plug it in. The sound coming from the Home Theatre receiver will be low-power and will carry on an RCA cable. Look for the subwoofer output on the home theatre and connect it to the input on the subwoofer. There may be a right and a left input on the woofer. . .it doesn't matter which you plug it into. . .either one will do.
NEC rating for speaker wire installation link : http://www.bluejeanscable.com/articles/inwallrating.htmI Interesting reading however that doesn't answer your question directly... You may have to speak with the local building/wring inspector if you are concerned about the rating. CL2 & CL3 are suitable for in wall use. If I were you, I would solicit the information from the place you purchased your wire.. they must have a direct line of communication with the supplier /manufacturer and should ba able to provide that information.
