    Is there a special tool that I need to run some speaker wire under my carpet? Or is there something I can rig up to use. Thanks for the help.

    you can use a carpet fish...but you'll have a ridge where the wire runs under the carpet, unless you use really thin, shitty speaker wire. You can't go down into the basement and back up?

    I am in an apartment so no basement. And I can't run it by the baseboards. Where can I get a carpet fish?
