I have a cabling conundrum that I’d like some suggestions on.
My house has a finished basement, and a second floor. I want to run speaker wires and coax cable too if possible. My television / receiver etc. is on an outside wall*. I can’t easily go up the wall to an attic because there’s another floor there that I’d have to contend with. I can’t really go down to the basement because it’s finished with a sheet rock ceiling (IOW, not a drop ceiling that I could get to)
How is speaker wire generally run in situations like this? One thing I thought about was to remove the baseboard, cut and inch or two off the bottom of the sheet rock and hide the cables and wires there along the floor. Another option is to find the studs, cut out the sheet rock, drill a hole through each stud, and run the wires through there and patch / repaint the dry wall.
Both of those options seem like a lot of work; which isn’t necessarily bad; but how would a pro likely resolve this? Cable hiders? Go behind the wall? Find a way to go through the basement and back up again?
*To add on to the difficulty, I’m going to have a bookshelf / entertainment center built in to the wall.
