Hi All, Today was supposed to be a happy day The builders finally finished the cinema room in the loft and, whilst I was busy cleaning the speaker cables from all the paint and dust, I discovered this horror show hidden behind the brush plate. To say I'm distraught right now is an understandment... Having been charged a substantial amount for them to channel the cables behind the wall and to then find this mess (which they failed to tell me about) cobbled together with 5p electrical connector strips beggars belief. It looks to me they've slipped with an electical device as some have only 1 side of the cable cut. So, I know that splicing a speaker cable is a serious compromise at best, but does any one have any good recommendations at to what to do here, or if there's even a decent enough solution to extend? How much of a compromise is it going to be with the sound - connections being QED anniversary XT cable running to Kef R300 fronts, R300 backs, and ci130QR ceiling speaker? Worst case is they'll have to channel out the wall and lay new cables which is obviously going to be a very expensive option for them. Any advice gratefully received. Thanks.
