Vertical Wall Concealed Wiring
Running single cable wire inside the wall from speaker to baseboard. Cable wire is NOT visible from speaker to the board. Then, from board to the component wire is exposed along the floor. Optional white tube concealment (1/4 inch) along the board to component if location permits.

Vertical and Horizontal Concealed Wiring

In addition to vertical concealment, running speaker wire BEHIND the baseboard to component, if location permits. Cable wire is NOT visible at all. This complicated process involves removing the baseboard, drilling holes and studs, running the wire behind the baseboard and placing the baseboard back. During the process, the wall and baseboard are exposed to higher risk of damage, possibly will require baseboard replacement and wall patch up with minor paint touch up.

Tube Concealed Wiring
Running plastic white (could be painted) tube from the speaker to the baseboard, and/or, along the baseboard to component.
