I am putting new carpet down and want to run my rear 5.1 speaker wire under the carpet. I know that I will want to replace it once a year (I am weird like that), so I thought I'd get a few of these:
The idea is that I could keep the wire as short as possible. It should be easy to replace the wire, too. My idea is to take some very long string, tie something metalic to it that will fit through the channel in the cord protector, then take a magnet to the metal object and drag the string through to the other side. I would then tie my speaker wire to the end of the string and pull it through.
Does this sound like a workable approach? The above-linked cord protector looks reasonably thin, so I don't think it'd be too noticeable if stepped on through the new thick padding and thick carpet I will soon be getting.
