    Strip and wire 'em together. Plastic wire nuts, amps should be no problem.

    Poke around web for three way wiring connections, and add a 4th if you leave the room at opposite ends of the room.

    If you are using speaker wire guage, like 18+, really not good idea.
    Want 16 or smaller # -inverse is larger wire. 14 is ok.

    Get more help at your hardware store. Easier explained.

    Here's one way

    You will have to use 14 ga NM at a minimum nothing smaller is allowed for in wall wiring.
