Surround Sound Questions

I recently upgraded from an older two-channel stereo system to a 5.1 surround sound receiver. I have left, right, center, and sub woofer speakers set up at the front of the room, but no easy way to run wire for the rear speakers.

What’s the best DIY wireless method to get my surround sound to the back of the room?

Does someone have a schematic for a stereo transmitter/receiver that I could build? Would using a combination wired and wireless setup  have any issues with syncing the front and rear channels?
