Hey all - I have pieced together some Bowers&Wilkins speakers and need to know if anyone has a suggestion for me!
So far I have (temporarily) mounted the TV, and the L&R speakers (they only take a second to remove from the wall as they all use brackets). My goal is to have 0 wires showing, so I will be routing them in the wall to a media cabinet in a spot not visible in the picture.
My question is this: Is there any way to not rip up a bunch of visible dry wall to run the speaker wire from the L&R to the center of the room (behind the TV)
Like this: Red being speaker wires, brown lines being the studs, and yellow being a hole that wont be visible that I don't mind cutting into the dry wall to give me enough room to do the drilling in both directions, I will also have an electrical box and cable ran behind the TV as well.
Is there any long flexible drill bit or anything to drill through the studs in the wall without ripping the drywall up next to them?
THIS. Unless . . . what is going on with that wall? Is that just a piece of trim, or a concrete knee wall of sorts? Maybe you could do something in that area?

Could be tricky if that is an exterior wall and insulated
TV looks on the high side, what about bringing every thing down closer to assumed knee wall and running cables there as NickTheGreat mentioned
Thanks for the help! I'll look into that bit.
My plan is to remove the lowest trim piece by the carpet and stringing the cables down there (might have to cut the sheet rock an inch but that can be covered up by the trim when its put back on)
I'm confused too.
If you're careful cutting the caulk at the top of the baseboard (use a metal straight edge and a sharp utility knife) you may be able to get away without repainting and recaulking the baseboard.
