Default Paging Audiofn

I have a technical question if you don't mind. You were the first person I thought of as I have read alot of the advice you have given here and have saved some to use on future pojects.

I recently bought a home theater system and purchased the monster wire. Yesterday I ran the wire through the attic and somehow miscalculated my measurements. It worked out ok, but I can not place the speakers exactly where I want to. Can I splice a couple of feet of the same wire without affecting the quality of the sound or do I need to redo the whole thing?

Thanks
James

SOrry it took so long to get back to ya. You can splice your wire if you have to, just solder it with SILVER Solder and you will be fine.

10% would have been perfect. I am about 3.5' away from where I wanted to be and I ran 42'.
