I think I have a pretty standard arrangement of my HT equipment. I have the TV in the center, with two audio racks on both sides of the tv, and then finally the speakers on the outside of the audio racks. My speakers are about 8 feet apart. I have the receiver and power amp in the left audio rack. I need to have about 10 feet of speaker wire to reach the right front speaker. But on the left I need a lot less length of speaker wire since the amp is on the same side. I have the speaker the same lengths. What does everyone do with extra speaker wire? I heard that it is bad to coil the speaker wire. Any ideas?
