Kennyt, I think you are first required to perform this test. Fill the bath tub with water. Take your shoes and socks off. Stand in water filled tub. Now place one of the speaker cable ends in your mouth. Next firmly grasp the other cable in your moist hand and have your wife power up your amplifier. If you are not dead, these wires are safe for under your carpeting. I hope I have been helpful.
if you don't want to spend a fortune, check out this cable made by DeCorp:
you can get it in 12 gauge (.008"), 14 gauge (.006"), and 18 gauge (.004"). i've never used the wire before so i can't comment on how it "sounds". good luck.
So far no problems here. I had the Mapleshade cables for a few months under the carpet for my surrounds. I ran it along the edges and is under a thick 10 lbs carpet pad with thick carpet on top of that. So there is lots of padding. Works for me and sounds great. It is a little delicate and you have to be very carefull and tape it to the floor before laying the carpet and pad on top.
