50 feet is quite far for interconnects. I'd bet on it that you get noise and signal loss. Don't do it!

Unfortunately the system placement must remain as is. There is a little bit of slack right now, so I could probably reduce the length by about 4 feet or so.
At present I am using Monster speaker cables which were supplied by the installer who was not an audiophile. It is 10 or 12 gauge. Unfortunately, at the time I was too busy to specify what type of cable I wanted so the installer did the best he could. The system sounds very nice as is (with no noise, and very musical). Now I have an opportunity to install a new run of speaker cables due to some new renovation that needs to be done.
CL3 rated cable is shielded to avoid interference. I have been researching Kimber Quick 12, Analysis Plus Blue Oval and Transparent (they have a few products for in wall applications).
Any feedback or recommendations would be appreciated.
