Wink Re: Shorten my speaker cables?

As the electrical signal travels at approximately 81% the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) what do you think cutting a few feet off a speaker cable will accomplish? Test in Magenpan's labs have shown that speaker cables should never be shorter than eight feet to creates the best sonic result. No one knows exactly why that is but if I were you I would not sweat even a twenty foot cable!
