I had to move my surround speakers back to get behind all listening positions in my room. I currently use 16 Guage speaker wire connected to my RTi4 Surrounds. To get the proper length wire for this new distance, I had to splice together another 7 Ft of wire to the original length. Will this procedure cause any problem for the sound comming out of these speakers ? Does splicing wire degrade the signal getting to my speakers ? I will likely replace this wire with 12 Guage wire anyway....and will have one wire the correct length to each surround. But I thought it would be a good question for the Forum.
