Will 2.5mm twin and earth cable fit in this size?
Cable dimensions are 10mm wide x6mm thick.
No. the trunking dimensions listed as 16x8mm are external dimensions. The internal dimensions are a maximum 10x5mm, but because the trunking is semi-circular it reduces the internal capacity. The size to accept the 2.5mm twin and earth would be 30x15mm.

Would this accommodate two speaker cables each with 0.75mm(squared) cross section?
The cross section area of my cables are 0.75mm squared. Also, I'd like to know if there is an equivalent to the 30x15mm D-line Cable Outlet for the 16x8mm version or if not, does the cable just have to come out of the end with the microtrunking?
Thank you for your enquiry.
Two of these cables in the 16x8mm Micro Trunking would be quite tight to close the lid, especially if you are using the accessories as these use some of the internal capacity of the trunking. If you do purchase the lengths I would recommend you test the cables in the lengths before you install.
With regards to the cable outlet for the 16x8 - there is not an accessory as such, however some I know that some installers have used the Equal Tee and removed the spout for a neat finish.
