    The cable I want to join is for the rear surrounds, it is less then 100 cm short.

    Can I just add some extra cable or should I look at getting new cable?

    If I can just add some cable what is the best way of joining, would twisting and insulating the join be ok?

    Any advice much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Solder is the best method. It's reliable, fairly easy, has near-perfect electrical properties, and won't pull apart easily. Oh, and some insulation, too.

    I did this but used solder,there is a method for joining cables without solder but i would not recomend it for speaker cable.
