    I'm in a lil pickle.

    I ran my rear surround speaker wires while finishing the room over our garage.

    I chose not to put the rears in the very corners of the room .

    Now that I finally have my A/V receiver and speakers. I realize that I only have a listening area for the very center of the room and only can view/listen while sitting on the sofa.

    I'm now seriously considering moving all surrounds to the corners of the room and need to decide, do I wanna try and rerun new wire runs (which is a pain since the insulation and sheetrock are up and obviously a problem, or make short runs from the existing runs to the new location by simply connecting the speaker wire with wire nuts or some other preferred method.

    Ideas or suggestions?

    The real question comes down to rerun the wires or to add on.

    Since it only involves the Surround Speakers I would just tie into the existing wires. Either use Wire-nuts or Solder and Heat-Shrink the connections?
