I'm finishing my basement and what to plan for the future including an outdoor patio. I have electrical out there but as I'm unsure when the outdoor will be functional would rather wait to run speaker wire, coaxial network, etc and instead now just add a conduit tubing.

Can I run all of these in the same PVC conduit without interference? Also how close to the electrical wires can I be without sever interference?

For speaker wiring, anc Coa, you can use direct burial and skip the conduit. But, it you fell you must use conduit, I would run them in separate conduits, even thought they may coexist in one without issue (conduit IS pretty cheap).

Distance from electrical sould be at least 12", or more if possible. If you must cross electrical, do it at a 90 degree angle.
