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.

Open Question I have installed a ceiling fan and have run the wires to a wall switch that also has only one black wire and one white wire. How do you wire to a double switch


Trust Me ...I am an electrician. There is no way (legally) to do what you want to do with the wiring that exists. One of two things can happen at this point...1) rewire the switch leg with 3 wire cable (Type NM-B aka Romex with 3 conductors + ground). This involves some skill and maybe some drywall repair. OR 2) buy a remote control for your ceiling fan. They sell them at most home improvement stores, and they install fairly easily in the motor housing of your ceiling fan. The transmitter runs off of batteries, and doesn't require special wiring to operate. Your wall switch will have to remain ON for you to operate, but the remote can handle the rest, like dimming your lights and fan speed control. Good luck!

I need to find out how to mount stereo MA-10D speakers to a wall. I can't see any mounting capabilities on the back, sides, top, or bottom of the speakers. Has anyone successfully mounted speakers like...


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:
  • Masking Tape
  • Level
  • Pencil
  • Keyhole saw
  • UL Class 2 speaker wire
  • Fish tape
  1. Locate the studs closest to where you'd like to install your speaker. You'll want to install the speakers in between the studs.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Run the speaker wire through the wall, or fish speaker wire from an existing installation.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Surround the speaker with insulation to enhance the sound. Secure the speaker into place, and do any necessary patching or painting

Kenwood deck reads protect and won't function


you have one of your speaker wires shorted out to the body of the car somewhere, or the speakers that you installed are bad. That is the only two reasons it will go into protect. Correct the problem, then reset the deck - it should work fine.
Kenwood builds this feature in to protect the outputs - so they dont burn up in the case of shorted speakers or wiring.

What is Class rated for the speaker wires?


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.
