Hi everybody,

I am in the middle of finishing my basement. I am at the point just before putting on the insulation/drywall. I'd like to run the speaker cables inside the studs for later hookup. I have the following questions/doubts:

1. How should I terminate the cable at each end: get those binding posts on a plate OR just cut a hole on the wall and leave a few feet extra at each end and make the conntection through this single piece of cable later.

2. I got the Monster XPHP - CI cable for $120/100 ft roll, is this good enough if I spend $7-8K later on the home theater system. If I should get other better cables, can some one recommend a brand and model?

Thank you very much!
