Drywall was originally designed to hide plumbing and CABLES. Use it to hide the speaker cables. Not as hard as it looks. Any baseboard in the room? Cut the caulk, pry the baseboard off, and cut a channel in the exposed bottom of the drywall. You get extra points for passing the cables through holes drilled in the exposed studs, higher marks for using nail plates if needed.
Paint the baseboard nail heads and recaulk if it's not up to standard after nailing it back in.
I like jautor's approach best, though. Take a hammer, and make a big hole in any drywall. You'll then feel much more comfortable about making additional holes where needed, for running your cables. Drywall repair and painting is super cheap. I have a great drywall guy.
If you post pics, we can help you plan the runs.
