First of all, use only speaker wires rated for in-wall use. Romex electrical cable of the desired thickness works fine.

Stringing speaker cable through the wall is no different than strining electrical cable through the wall. It is not necessary to staple the cable to the studs that cannot be seen or reached.

You drill holes in the Stud Bay from either an Attic or Crawl Space. You can mark the proper bay with a piano bit so you know where you're supposed to be drilling.

You will also need a set of glow / fish rods to properly run the wires, especially on an exterior wall with insulation.
