RE: Speaker cable length

A cable's main duty is to interconnect components. That means as short as possible, but no shorter. If you don't leave slack, you are asking for trouble, including failure of the connection points of the cable itself, so there is no benefit to a cable that is too short to do the job.

In practical terms 3' is a very short speaker cable. Use your good judgement.
