After a little research I picked up a Sony HT-SS370 last night. I'm trying to find ways to extend the speaker cables without jeopardizing the sound quality. Since the Sony speaker cables are proprietary extending the wires isn't as easy. My question is would it be okay to splice the proprietary plug end to the extending cables? Also, I believe the Sony wires are around 22 gauge, would it be okay to splice it to 18 gauge wires or should I stick with 22 gauge. My other question is, since the sub woofer is hard wired, which sucks, would splicing the wire in 2 spots, one at the sub end and the other being the plug end, be okay? I have found some universal proprietary plugs that fit into the Sony unit on ebay that come with 18 gauge ends so I could go that route as well. But does using a say 16 or 18 gauge instead of the wire it comes with worth it?
Any advice is appreciated. Even if that advice is that I should take this HTIB back.
