My cable box is inside and I will need to do a long (200 feet) run for the audio.  Is it better to have a short audio/RCA cord from the cable box to the receiver and then very long runs of speaker wire to my speakers?  Or, would it be better to have a long run of RCA cable to a recevier closer to my speakers and then a short run of speaker wires.  Does it matter?  Thanks.

Are you set on having the equipment inside?  Could you just run the cable out to the projector area and have your cable box and dedicated audio out there?

Yep.  This will be a more permanent setup, so I will need to keep the equipment inside.

We have no problem with our audio runs -- each of them is 200 feet long.  You will need a bit more power from your power amp.  (We did 200 feet after two consequtive gigs that needed around 170 feet from our equipment rack and the front speakers.

phxbkyrd,

Shorter signal runs are preferable.  Your speaker cables can be 200' no problem.  Depending on how much power we're talking about, you may want to think about 14 or even 12 gauge speaker wire.

Have you considered is might be less expense to leverage technology with less effort to boot. You have a lot of options for streaming content now days.
