I am near completing my 7.1 surround sound system, but I've run into this one small problem.
I am using these 2 speakers for the SL(Side Left) and SR(Side Right) speakers and the length between the two of them is short, I was thinking I could simply cut the wire and use some speaker wire and wrap it up with a wire nut + some electrical tape.
The thing is, the wire carries both power and audio.
You could cut and shrinkwrap extra wiring in between. The problem is you'd want to have the cabling shielded or you'll end up with worse audio due to ingress and egress. You are better off buying new speaker that are independently connected
Can they be disconnected at all? Sometimes they have a coax/component end on them and all you need is a female/female adapter, and coax extension cord. I've done that bofore for my surround-sound system. But if not, then yes you could splice the wires. Just make sure you use similar guage wiring and don't cross the cables
