My wife was tired of seeing the wires for our front surround speakers and since we had recently moved into a new home it was her chance to put her foot down and get what she wanted. I did some research and found that the Ghost Wires from Sewell looked to fit the bill. There is very little on the internet around the installation of these wires outside of how to make 90 degree turns.

Before: Speaker was alone and didn’t look very good… So we decided to repaint and redo the wiring!

I took the project head on though and I think it turned out okay. I decided not to use the terminal blocks simply because of the cost. 4 of them go for about $30 dollars, which for how they look isn’t such a great deal

. I also found (i purchased one for testing) that the blocks are kind of heavy and without some kind of support, pull the Ghost wire (thus pulling the adhesive and the wire from the wall)

 

I opted to solder a few pieces of my old speaker wire onto the Ghost wire. I saw that some soldered to the top of the Ghost wire, but I decided to solder to the underside. I think it still came out well.

Applying the Ghost wire to the wall was fairly simple, I started at the speaker location and worked my way towards my receiver. The 90 degree turn at the floor and at the receiver were fairly easy to do. I did think that since you have to fold it over itself it does make it a little thick.

I also opted to putty the edges of the wire and do some light texturing. I found that the adhesive though sticky wasn’t holding some of the edges so well. I think this is mostly because of the fact my wall is textured. In the end though, I think it came out pretty well and my wife was very happy. Now she just wants all the wires and cables behind my receiver gone and hidden =) Not sure how I’m going to do that just yet.
