  1. 1

    Choose the exact spot where you want to place or mount your speaker or player where the HDMI cable will be connected to.

  2. 2

    Drill a small hole in the area where you will mount or place the speaker or player using a 1/4-inch drill bit and an electric driller. Push enough length of stiff wire into this hole to probe for any obstacles that might be behind the wall. Push your stiff wire down towards your floor. This will make sure that there is no obstructed path behind your television set to either floor level or to any height on your wall where the HDMI cables may re-emerge.

  3. 3

    Enlarge your top hole using your keyhole saw once you have cleared the path. Make sure that it is large enough to handle the HDMI cables that you will run through it as well as other wires and plugs.

  4. 4

    Drill another hole with your electric driller and enlarge it with your keyhole saw where you want the cables to re-emerge from your wall.

  5. 5

    Feed your HDMI cables down the inside of your wall from its top hole, and pull its ends out from your bottom hole.

  6. 6

    Connect the HDMI cables at the top hole to your player or speaker and mount the device onto its wall mount.

  7. 7

    Link the cables coming out of your bottom hole to any electronic component or other types of connection.
