Home Theater Speaker wiring

Hi! I am in the process of trying to set up my 5.1 home theater speaker system. I was wondering if anyone out there would be able to advise on how they set up their rear speakers. I need to send the wire around the wall. However, I am not going to be able to send the speaker wire in through the wall. Too much money and time. I am thinking about sending the speaker wire through some white vinyl tubing because my walls are white. However, I was wondering if there are any brackets or something out there I can use to make the whole speaker wiring as slick and as unnoticable as possible when hanged on the wall. Thank you.

I agree with bmwcycle. Either run it through your crown molding or baseboards or under carpet (along wall so won't walk on it). You don't want ugly white "tubing" to show. Trust me, it's ugly. My neighbor did that and after he was done we laughed and we quickly changed it. I ran mine (& neighbors) along the baseboards then up through the wall. This is actually quite easy to do if you have the fishing tape. Cover up the holes with the baseboard at the bottom and with the speaker on the wall. It'll have that professionally installed look too.

Also, see Crutchfield. I have seen flat monster cables that are paintable and are very good for your issue.
