Sommer makes some dandy speaker-level coaxial cable under the Magellan name, with 2x2.5 mm^2, 2x4.0mm^2, and 2x6.0mm^2 equivalent thicknesses. I like coax because it has minimal series inductance, and in RF-noisy environments you have less junk getting back to the feedback loop.

I'm after suggestions based on aesthetics and practicality please.....

My speakers get moved around a lot, most of the time they are in the middle of my room. The floor is cork tiles. I want a very flexible cable that will stand being moved a lot and lie flat without complaining, and that will also blend with the floor colour to a degree. I like the look of this 3 Core Braided Antique Gold Individually Twisted 0.75mm PLU21134 but am open to all suggestions/advice. Thanks.
2 x 4mm2 twin litz wire.

Thanks for the latest suggestions. As remarked a little earlier, my requirements regards aesthetics have relaxed somewhat, the only place now where the practicalities are still an issue is where they run across the doorway. At the moment the four separate wires are lying side by side taped to the floor, I'm planning to to cover them with some kind of threshold strip, the thinner the better, if anyone has any suggestions I would be grateful.

Speaker Cable
You know, they have these nice alu profiles intended for that purpose. Many different types pending on your needs, and the cable will be well protected even if you drop something heavy on them.

Have you looked at seam binders? You'd have to rout a groove in the bottom for the cables, assuming reasonably sized wires, but once that's done it should be both functional and attractive. Should you decide to move, getting the cable out could be interesting so I'd advise screws instead of glue.

Yes, thank you, those appear to be what I meant by threshold strip?

More or less. Threshold strip can cover different heights, say from carpet to tiles, whereas seam binders begin and end at the same height. They seem intended to match two different wooden floors on either side of a doorway, for example.
