Thats a very furry wire/cable? :-D

Oh you've changed it lol

Looks like standard twin speaker cable, about 40p a meter from any wire stockist.

Are both ends the same?

what do the connection points look like they go into? are they just flip clips with holes?

If so you could just cut 4 inches off that cable

Thats what i thought too, depending if you can trim the end and repair or if you need new cable wilkos sell it 12p a metre or 100m for £9, I opted for the 100m as im planning to pipe the stereo into all rooms via ceiling mounted flush speakers and a selectable switch.

If you replace the length with new I reccomend tinning the ends so as the clips get a better grip. Make sure you select the speaker wire too rather than bell wire from wilko's if going that route as the bell wire is a solid strand rather than twisted strands, the solid stuff fractures easily and leaves a dodgy connection.

That Wilkos stuff is ok for short distance low powered speakers, but its pretty naff.

The stuff I had I got a while ago was thicker than the stuff they sell now, and also the one you buy by the metre is better than the precut lengths:thumbsup:
