Speaker cable problem !


Standard Member
Hi All

I've just received my speaker cable through the post, upon opening the box
i noticed that the cable i purchased for the centre, left and right fronts will
not fit into the conduit that is plastered into the walls.

One option i have is to strip back the outer protective coating. This will give me the clearance that i need. Will this affect the performance of the cable.

I purchased Chord Carnival Silver Screen for the fronts and centre with QED Micro for the rears.

i would buy some new conduit

Stripping back the coating will leave the cable vulnerable to interference and if removed completely will oxidise the wiring resulting in a serious degradation of quality.

I suggest you replace you conduit and not damage good-quality cabling!
