Dont worry this is easy,
1. Strip the wires back about 1/2" each
2. Twist the ends together nice & tight
3. Wrap the exposed wire with electrical tape so you cant see the bare wire
4. test run the speakers
5. If you get any feed back or it sounds bad switch the wires around on the back of the speakers

That should do it
Good Luck

The back speaker wire isn't long enough to reach to the back of the room. How can I splice the wire and still get it to hook back up to the receiver? Please give a very detailed description, and video or...


buy some speaker wire and wire nuts
cut speaker wire for the speaker and strip back the wire on both ends
cut length of speaker wire required for installation and strip both ends
connect one of the wires to one of the new wires and twist together and then twist on a wire nut... do this for all four individual wires making sure that you don't cross the wires by twisting the new wire.
connect and check. if you don't hear any sound or it is really low, untwist one side of the wires and exchange them.

Speaker wire problem


Yes you can splice the ends onto the existing wires, but first make sure the ends are labeled + or - and make sure you hook the other ends to the speakers the correct way. Before you cut the connectors off of the speaker wires mark one of each of the pairs of the wires with tape, on each side of where you cut it so you can match the wires back up. Are the pre-wired, wires labeled + and -? or red and black? Or one of each pair is a different color wire ie silver and copper? If they aren't labeled its going to be hard to get the correct polarity (+ and -) for each speaker. I hope this helps post back if you have any problems.

I have Altec Lansing 221, good sounding speakers but the connection cable from the speaker to computer shorts out. Any idea for a replacement cable? Thanks


I would disconnect the power before doing anything! then go to radio shack and buy a cable with the correct plug on it. Then i would cut off as much as possible of the old cable to the speaker, but leave enough room for splicing effectively. Then i would cut open the radio-shack cable and connect the wires of that cable to the remaining wires of the old cable still attached to the speaker. red is left, black is right, and the un-cased wire is negative. Try to figure out what is what on your old wire so that you can splice everything together accordingly. I hope this is not too confusing!! Good Luck!!

Lengthen speaker cable


i had same problem. yeah, there's not much wire included. i just purchased a spool of speaker wire and got the length i needed. since the wires are usually color-coded, i tagged each new wire with 2 stick-on-spots, with sticky side back to back over the wire, and wrote RR & LR to make it easier for locating them in a jumble. you can also just splice and tape extra wire on but i feel every cut cuts back on quality of sound.

My computer speaker wire has a short.


The audio cables normally have only two wires in them, one being shielded the other not. You should be able to splice the two together to fix the problem, if there is no colour coding you wont cause any damage to anything if you get them back to front the first time round guessing.

Instalation instructions required


Uhmmm. . .okay. . .I would use nothing less than 16AWG speaker cable. Do not run the speaker cable parallel in close proximity to any AC wiring. Speaker cable rated to run through walls with usually be color coded red and black. Connected the red to the red on the speaker and red on your home theatre receiver. Do the same for the black. If speaker cable insulation is clear, look closely for subtle markings or writing on the insulation. The writing will only be on one of the two wires. Designate that as the POS or PLUS or + or RED. Connected it to the red on the speaker and the red on the back of your home theatre receiver. The other is by default the black and connect it to like colors. Repeat for all 5, or 7 speakers in your theatre. Your subwoofer probably has a seperate amplifier, so it gets it's power from it's own AC power plug. . .so plug it in. The sound coming from the Home Theatre receiver will be low-power and will carry on an RCA cable. Look for the subwoofer output on the home theatre and connect it to the input on the subwoofer. There may be a right and a left input on the woofer. . .it doesn't matter which you plug it into. . .either one will do.

Philips Home Theater Speaker Wire (can it be cut?)


Sure you can, Joel.

Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.

At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.

Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!

Antenna Wire Cut


I would not advise this...just go get a new one at radio shack or circuit city, some times this splicing is ok, but then again...it may not work...I am for getting anew one.
