Anyone have any experience doing this? We're finishing our basement and want to wire it for a home theater before putting up drywall. I have no idea where to start, but we are ready to drywall so I'd like to get it done asap.

Run conduit from each future speaker location back to the central location where the home theater equipment will reside. Then you can pull whatever cables you need later and can easily pull new cables when the technology changes later. Run one to a location in the ceiling too if you think you may ever install a projector. Conduit is cheap.

Don't run cheesy Walmart speaker wire, get #14(or even better #12) speaker wire and do it right. You cannot run speaker wire or any other low voltage circuit in the same conduit as 120 volts AC and if not using conduit keep it at least 1 foot away so it doesn't pick up noise from the power wiring.
