Hi guys,

So I have two bookshelf speakers that I want to get set up behind my couch.

I have wood floors and dry wall...so what's the best way to get the wires from one side of the room to the other?

Thanks,

How do you plan on mounting the speakers? Are the speakers going to be wall mounted, or on floor stands? Slab floor, or raised foundation? Accessible attic space?

One option could be baseboard cable channels. Eventually you'll have a run up the wall, but these can still be covered and made to look "decent".

Do you have access below wood floor?

If not run the cable behind the baseboards from the front to back of room and then up a stud bay behind sheetrock to a wallplate behind each speaker.
