I'm not exactly sure what you are asking. I have never heard of cable protectors or why one would need them since I have been in this hobby starting in 1971. Maybe you could be more specific.

I’ve always used them for larger cables was wondering any specific ones that worked well with thinner cables . So speaker cables do not need anything?

Protect them from what?
Massive amounts of dust ...
Running them from basement .
Nails ... wear and tear .
I don’t have enough large gauge cables I’d prefer to run those but I’m out down to 16awg.

I was going to run some speaker wire from receiver threw basement to rear speakers .

So these wires will be in motion or something? Protection from nails you might hammer into the cables, not much will help with that. You might think of running the wire thru conduit, tho.

There thin gauge cables , not very durable .. no I wont hammer fresh nails into cable . What type of stupid question is that ?
Might be cheaper just to wrap electrical tape around them ...

To be fair you do ask a lot of stupid questions yourself.

Don't these cables already have insulation on them? That should be more than enough to protect them from dust and being run through the wall. Wire loom is typically meant for applications where there will be movement of the wire against metal surfaces. Think cars, computer cases, etc.

Wire loom is mainly for dress up and wire management and protection especially in automotive uses. Dust and the like do not degrade speaker wire. For in wall speaker wiring there is a specific wire used for that application. Amazon and many other places sell it. For cables like HDMI and others most use wire conduit

Dust is not an issue. Running from basement should not be an issue either and why would nails be an issue? If cable runs through a stud, drill hole in center.
Wear and tear just sitting around? There are wires in homes for a very long time. Not one changed positions on their own.
Don't run cables where one might walk on them in the attic. closed walls should be very safe.

Maybe I’m just over worried about nothingness lmao ... Fail
There is a old cable there from analog days are those useful for anything?
In that case THEN I JUST NEED a GUIDE or something to keep it from getting stuck stuck or something?

Is that old cable for speaker or an interconnect? If the insulation or outer jacket in good shape, it will work for the same function as before.

It’s a old cable box cable just sitting there unplugged. If I moved it out of the way I could fit more cables there .

I don’t think they make cheap cable protector for speaker wire but I can check Home Depot . Does the plastic on the speaker wire do an adequate enough job I may just use it and not worry about damages .

It you are not exposing the cables to physical assaults, it will be just fine.
