I only have two main speakers set up (front right and front left). The way I have my A/V components and speakers situated called for me to cut two different lengths of speaker wire. One wire is roughly 10 feet long and the other is about half that. I'm not sure of the gauge of the wire but it is your typical size found just about anywhere. My question is did I do right in cutting the wire custom length or should I have cut both wires exactly the same length regardless of the length I actually needed? The reason why I cut them at custom lengths is because I was using someones extra speaker wire and they needed some to spare. Will the sound be different between the two speakers or does it even matter due to the short distance between the receiver and speaker? Sometimes I think I do hear that one speaker is slightly louder than the other but I think this just might be my imagination (or a placebo-effect).
