Can i cut these cables?

Postby scg1889 » Tue May 03, 2022 1:06 pm


Very noddy question as i know naff all about electrics! i've moved into a house that has cables under the floor coming out of each corner which I assume were for surround sound speakers - and hey it's all about the soundbar these days, right? ;-)

Just wanted to know whether i could cut these down so they protrude a little less without risking anything untoward happening?

Thanks in advance :-)

Simply Build It

Ideally you need to prove that the cables are dead. As the ends are bare and have no doubt touched each other (and nothing has gone bang) then I would say do as you see fit.
