    I need some advice. I need to lengthen some of my cables, I have the same cable and I was going to join them in the middle by twitsing them together and applying a bit of solder. Do you think this will affect the sound quality?

    :eek: Most on here would have kittens at the thought of having any kind of 'join' in speaker cables.

    Soldering as you say is the easiest and cheapest way of doing it, avoid putting insulating tape directly onto the copper as this can in time cause problems. As long as you do a good job of soldering by covering most of the bare copper, you can then hide the join with insulating tape quite safely :smashin:

    Thanks. I'll think I'll get some new cable - my wife will not be pleased.
