    Does anyone know of any guides online that will assist me with this? I have the courage, but not the knowledge.

    Basically I need to run about 40 feet of wire to the rear speakers, going over a vaulted ceiling and half way down the rear wall. I don't really know what my strategy should be when starting a project like this. Any help would certainly be appreciated.

    Dont forget to run 3 sets of speaker wires so you are ready for that rear-center speaker.

    Todd, I don't want to second guess you, but I assume that it is not convenient or possible to run wire down the wall, through the floor, along a basement ceiling and then back up to the wall where you want the rear speakers? Might be easier than trying to go over a vaulted ceiling.

    that pdf file is sweet! also, once you get into the nitty-gritty, be sure to visit (and search) the ht construction forum - lots of stuff on this topic.

    here's an example:
