When I was in college, my speaker wire (and budget) were too short. I couldn't do anything about the budget. But what I did for the speaker wire was to take two short pieces of wire, strip them back and hand twist the braids together to make one longer wire. I then covered the repair with masking tape (Yes, you read that correctly). It worked fine with no audible difference. Of course, that may be more a commentary on the quality of my system at the time than a credit to ingenuity. I'm sure that if you spliced or soldered the wire together, it would work fine for you too as a stop gap until you can replace it. However, there will no doubt be a number of people who will be appalled at the suggestion. I can't wait to read their comments.
