Before running any wire for a home theater system is to make sure you have a clear path for the wire. Go out and buy yourself a good stud finder, used for find any studs or fire blocks. This is what I usually do for mounting a speaker and running the wire in the attic. Find a good spot for the speaker. Make sure you can get to the area above the speaker in order to make your hole for the wire. DO NOT make any holes in the drywall before you are sure the speaker wire is there where the speaker will be. As soon as you make the hole into the top-plate, in the attic, use a flexible rod to push down in the hole to make sure there is no obstruction blocking your way. As soon as your sure that you have a clean path down to the speaker, go ahead and push the wire down into the wall where your speaker will be mounted. Then go ahead and mount your speaker and fish the wire out from the wall. The more and more you do these type of installations, you will soon discover easy and better ways to install any speaker and will become more comfortable.
