I'm sure this has been covered before here but I couldn't find much on it with a search. I'm moving into a new house and I'm planning on running speaker wire from my receiver, up through the wall and through the attic and then down to my rear surrounds which will probably be ceiling mounted. I do have attic access (although there is quite a bit of insulation covering the attic floor up there) so it shouldn't be that hard and I'm pretty good at figuring things out but I'm sure I could benefit from your know-how. So how exactly do I get the wires up the wall to the attic? Or if I drop them down to the drilled hole in the wall from the attic then how do I get them down the wall through all the insulation and whatnot? One thread I found wasn't very detailed but it mentioned using a "fish." Is that something I'll need and if so what is it? If this has been covered extensively before then please direct me to the thread or to any good websites you know of. Thanks!
