Any suggestions for in-wall cabling?

I am going to build in our new house a multi-zone system, but a pretty basic one. Simply put, I am going to run stereo audio, composite video, and speaker cabling to all rooms. The speaker cables will be run off of amps from the processor, to the wall, then on to the next room through the attic.
I am planning on using high quality RG6 cabling to make the long video and audio runs. Not particulary worried about the sound quality in other rooms, because mostly there will be a lot of ambient and other noise in other zones.
Am I okay running RG6? I will probably run Monster Z2 Reference cables in my walls, as i can get MC stuff on accomodation.
Any suggestions? HELP!
* I don't think any run will be more than 50 feet. most will be under 30. Video will run into the wall, to the attic, through a multi-zone audio and video distribution hub, then back out to respective outlets. speaker will be direct.

Unfortunately, there are not many manufacturers who have focused any attention towards a high quality in-wall. Another important consideration is shielding because of the length of the runs.

Also, if you are interested in conforming to National building codes, (BOCA, Building Official Code Administration) you must use a wire with a CL3 certification.

Lat International offers a 2 wire and 4 wire version of their in-wall speaker cable. It meets all of the above mentioned criteria and is reasonably priced @ $99.00 per 100ft roll for the 2 wire, $156.00 per 100ft roll of the 4 wire (Bi-wire) .

LAT makes a very good quality product for the money. It is probably one of the best wires available for your application.

You can look up LAT in the "manufacturers list". on the Audiogon home page. Click on "speaker wire" and look under "SS in-wall".

Best of luck, Ed.
Breitlingdj, I try to avoid the "good, better, best" scenarios on this forum. In this case the word "superior". Although, if LAT is using the same method of construction, and the same quality of raw material that he uses in the rest of his cabling, Yes, I would have to assume that it is of a better quality than the Monster.

LAT uses seven 9 purity copper and silver in the construction of his wiring. PTFE teflon is used in the outer sheath of his wiring, and his wire is braided, not twisted, for rejection of RFI/ EMI.

I use LAT wiring exclusively for both my 2 channel system and my HT. I have tried many different cables including several different types of Monster. The first and most noticable characteristic of LAT, is that it is DEAD QUIET.

I also find LAT to be the most natural sounding, yielding NO sonic signature. I won't say there is not "better" sounding out there, but I will say that there is "different" sounding.

But that's just MY opinion.
