I'm in the process of moving all my equipment to a new rack closer to my monitor and I have enough speaker cable that will all reach the reciever, but the problem is I have to splice the wire for my rear speakers, I have to add about 6 feet. I usually discourage the practice of splicing two ends of speaker wire together, but in this case it is much simpler as I won't have to gut the room and pull up the carpeting like I usually do, I hate doing that, it's a major pain in the ass, and it would be cheaper to do this as well, I won't have to spend another 30 bucks for just 6 feet of cable. My question however is, will I degrade the signal at all by doing this? In theory I shouldn't right, as long as I wrap the ends good and secure with electrical tape right? ------------------ God bless the USA and the men and woman of our military and their families!
