How do you connect 4 speaker wires?

What is 4 core speaker cable used for?
One of the most common uses for 4-Core Speaker Cable is to simply make installation easier. By running a single length of bundled cable to a central point (eg: the back of the room) you can then split off to two satellite speakers, saving yourself the trouble of pulling two sets of cables through multiple cavities.
