Is there a tape to cover up the speaker wires?

Is there a tape to cover up the speaker wires?

I have copper colored wires for my speakers. The wall is white and the wires look really crappy when I installed it (stapled gun to the wall). Is there any white "tape or sticker" that will cover up my speaker wires? I tried a white tape but it was transparent, so it was still distracting. Thanks.

I know that you can get speaker wire that is actually imbedded in flat ribbon tape that's meant to be painted the color of the wall. That might be an option for you.

Duct tape comes in a variety of colors now -- I think I'v e seen white, but I can't swear to it.

You could just paint them the same color as the wall.

What about quality, can this be compared to higher end cables?

Get a white cable raceway that mounts to the wall.

Then you get to use high end wire and not have to see it. Hope it helps.

Thanks for the replies. I bought a white duct tape from wal mart. It still looks a bit funky but way better than the copper colored wires. I was thinking of getting the white strips but they are too expensive, about $99 for 25 feet(?). whiteduct tape will do for now.
