Help! Fishing Wire

Does anyone have any tips on fishing speaker wire through walls.
The walls are 2x4's and have blocking half way up.
I need to go from the bottom to the attic.
Is there any way to do this without cutting holes in the middle of the drywall.
Thanks for any help

You can maybe get long flexible drill bits.

Yes, you can use flex-bits. Your local DIY shop should have some, they come in all different lengths and diameters. Here are some examples (http://www.lsdinc.com) Glow rods may be helpfull as well, unless you are able to attach wire or pull string directly to the bit and pull it eiter back out or all the way through.

JUST BE AWARE OF WHAT MIGHT BE IN THE WALLS ALREADY!

Are there outlets nearby? Could the romex be running across the wall, or top plate? What about water lines or sewer lines?
