Just received my Panasonic SC-HTB770 and I was trying to get it on last night when i noticed the supplied speaker cables are too short! Spoke with Panasonic live chat and they do not have any cables that are longer. So what should I do? can I buy speaker wire locally and use some butt connectors to make them longer? Any suggestions? Does anyone know what gauge the wires are? Please help me, it would be a shame for not to be able to install this
I used a choc block and just attached the supplied cables to one end an 14 gauge speaker wire to the other. Then I mounted the bloc in my AV closet. The 14 gauge barely fit the speaker bar terminals. 14 gauge was overkill, but it is what I use for most speaker connections so I had it.
The ends can be taken apart and you could replace the pins for a solid run, but I do not know what gauge pins they use so I went my route.
