The speaker cables Klipsch sold with the set is standard black/red speaker wire with a mono miniplug connector at one end to go into the back of the speaker. I'd like to replace the lost speaker wire by making my own wire, but I'd like to make it much longer than before. The wire Klipsch gave is maybe 10 feet long. How much longer can I make the wire without degrading the audio signal too much?

If you figure out how to make normal speaker cable into those single plugs please post it. I looked briefly but gave up. I've got 100 feet of cable sitting idle until I can get a couple of speakers or figure this out.
