What is the best way? The wire has to cross a couple doorways to get where I want it. Help!
There is flat speaker wire that sticks to the walls. Then you can paint over it. It's easy to find online.
you can run it over the top of the door and attached it to the molding or you can fish it under the carpet with a wire hanger. If you have a seam in your carpet in the doorway you can pull it back just be sure to reattached to carpet to the tack strip.
Both above answers are good. I have tried both but a lot of work. Try wireless system. They are a lot better than before. Epson sells one that works really good. Best Buy sells on but I don't remember the name of the brand. Another option is semi-wireless through your home wall outlet. There is a company called PowerLinx that has that technology. I think it will be available in the market soon.
Poor wire management is always an issue and a cause of many problems down the road after the system is installed. (not to mention how it looks and dealing with the wife after you duct tape wiring all along her floor and under her rugs.)
Take a look at these links for cable management ideas. Basically its a system of plastic channel or conduit that will hide and organize your cable runs. The other option is to fish the wire through the wall. Depending on your room and comfort level on this type install it can get quite involved.
i run my cables under the carpet you can not see them if there run along skirting under carpet or if your lucky you can slip the wires between the cracks of floor boards
