and it has those plain cables with no connectors and clips in the sub (i dont know how do you call those cables) anyway, the rear speaker cables are a bit too short,
so i decided to cut half of the cables from the front ones, and solder them to the rear cables to extend them a bit.
now, my question is, is there going to be any loss in sound quality because of this? i used some flux, and lead free solder.
also, if the cables are too long and i fold them up in a coil just so that they don't mix up with other cables, will there be any loss in sound quality? as i read that when a cable is in a coil it will generate little bit stronger magnetic field than when it is unravelled and it might interfere with the signal.

So long as your soldering is good, I wouldn't worry about either of the issues you've raised.
