Default Re: Shorten my speaker cables?

I've always wanted to shorten/buy better speaker cables, but my room configuration limits my speaker placement. My left front is about 10' from my audio gear and we have to walk between the speaker and the home theater setup, so the speaker wire has been run down into the basement and then back up to the speaker. This ends up making the speaker wire length ~ 25' and I also am bi-wiring all the front speakers, so I end up with ~50' of speaker on each side. This amount of speaker cable makes me very unlikely to upgrade to better speaker wire. I am using Audioquests CV-1 speaker wire on the front speakers at this time. I could probably shorten them ~ 5-7', since I they about that much longer than I really need. Do you folks think I should shorten my speaker cables as much as possible? Thanks.
