Quick question regarding extending speaker cable


I have just a basic Logitech z500 setup for now

thing is the cables aren't long enough to reach for the rears - however I have plenty of cable for the centre speaker

so I was thinking of cutting the centre and using the left over length to extending one of the rears so I could have it where needed.

They are pre soldered on the ends so what can I do? I Don't have a soldering kit so im thinking if I just cut and twist them together will it be ok? I know its not ideal but its not exactly a premium system anyway and just a temporary setup until I can figure out what I want

eventually i'll solder them but for now will it work ok?

I have a crimping tool and connectors but not sure if they will be ok with the gauge of cable here?

any tips are appreciated

thank you

they will be fine twisted together aslong as you wrap tight with electricians tape afterwards
