In wall speaker wires questions

Hi there, I have a small week end project to run wires in the crawl space. It's for the LCR channels, for about 15 feet. My questions are: should I keep the wires at a distance from each other? Bundle them together? Parallel or twisted together?

Fyi. Those are 3 sets of: 12AWG, CL2 rated, dual conductor speaker wires.

Also, my HDMI cable is going to be following the same path. Should I keep the speaker cables at a distance from it or it doesn't matter?

Thanks!!!

    Just keep all AV cables as far away as possible from the home's power lines & you should be fine. If you do have to cross over them, try to do so at a 90 degree angle to minimize the chance for interference.

    Agreed. I'm actually in a situation where there won't be any power lines in the way, so I'm not even going to have a 90 degree cross. :)

    Based on what you're saying. I take it it will be fine to have the speaker wires bundled together and running in parallel right?
