    I'm moving this to the Construction and Interiors section. But you're not likely to get useful answers unless you provide more information. Depending on the distance, room configuration, existing fixtures, etc., there's an enormous range of possibilities, ranging from burying the cable in the wall to simply stringing it around the room.

    Plastic wire channel from Home Depot works pretty well. Just run it along your baseboards and then pass it up through your wall to the speaker.

    The "best way" is to put the wire in the framing before the drywall goes on. Other than that I don't know any other ways.

    You can also run the wire next to the ceiling and then install molding. For example, we used a small strip of molding to cover the wiring to our side surrounds. Here you see half the molding installed.
