    Default Too much wire, not enough room

    Need help behind my A/V receiver. It's on a slide out shelf and the shortest speaker wire (banana to banana) still had to be coiled. I have way too much wiring and wonder if shorter cables are made and if you have any ideas regarding this mess. Really only need about 2 ft speaker cables.

    Found some left over in-wall 14ga speaker wire. Wouldn't this be OK to use?

    Monoprice will work but it's not the greatest choice to use IMHO
    SAMSUNG LCD--52", 240hz
    Panamax 5300PM--Power Conditioner
    CSIa6--Center Channel
    RTIa3--Front High Channels
    FXIa6-- Rear Channels
    Sony--3-way Tower Speakers (20yrs old)
    DSW pro 500--Subwoofer
    PIONEER 1021-K--7.1 Reciever
    My Own Custom Audioquest 14/4--Speaker Cables
    Audioquest--Cinnamon HDMI Cables
    Sony--PS3

    eventually i will own the RTIa9's but for now im using20 year old sony 3way towers.

    STILL NEED:
    Pioneer Elite 7.1 Receiver with pre-outs
    Emotiva XPA-3 Amplifier

    I would think that if you are only going 2 or so feet, that cable would be fine.

    Monoprice cable is fine. I use similar OFC in-wall speaker cable in my HT and party systems, the latter up to 40 feet.

    I may not even do banana plugs in the re-do. I thought it looked neat, but turns out it is somewhat hard to reach back there to insert the plugs. Had it been an exposed area, it would've been a better idea. As it is, I'm talking myself into removing the plates and hard-wiring.

    Thank you for your input so far. Ideas always appreciated.

    Took a few minutes today and built a prototype short speaker cable.
