My house came with speaker wire which i have been using, i just purchased an amp which needs to be placed a few (about 2 feet) further then the wire reaches, can you extend speaker wire or is this not recommended?
I have done it and never heard a degradation in sound. I made sure I used same gauge/brand. I figure every wire has to terminate somewhere then reconnect somehow and if that doesn't degrade the sound neither should a splice. But what do I know. I am ready for the heat now
I'm not qualified from an audio standpoint. But electrically, solder it, put some heatshrink tubing on (before you do the soldering, LOL) and it's as good as it gets. Just make sure solder correctly - i.e., the wires melt the solder rather than your heat source melting the wire, and you're golden.
