Hi @Samara1,

 

Running conduit would certainly make adding and removing cabling easier.

 

You could install these Taskmaster 60mm White Cable Duct covers where the speakers are, which would be a neat port for the wall.

Morning @Samara1 

I would take a wander into an audio place as there are numerous ways to mount terminals for your speaker cables. Depends on how you like the look really. As to Conduit verse stappling.... Stappling will lock teh cable in place (not keen on stapples as I have concern over the cable being pieced) Conduit with a drawwire inside it would make life a lot easier for future cable additions. 

 

DETA White Brush Wall Cover Plate - Single Pack is what I used for behind my tv to up to the Surround unit to hide a bunch of cables. With just Audio cables I think terminated sockets on wall plates would be nice.

Samara1...

 

I'm not a fan of in ceiling speakers either, but looking at your plan the ideal position for surround speakers is on your robe on the right and the window opposite on the left.!

Neither are practical..so you're left with two choices..In ceiling speakers, or putting the speakers on stands..

 

The latter choice is more practical as you are able to move the rear speakers to where ever they sound best..
