The thing to remember in audio is to worry about the things that make the biggest differences

Cables are not one of those

Often people get hung up on things like cables that hookup their poor quality speakers and expect a better cable to somehow get better performance out of them

i have indeed seen this lol. I guess ( now after reading the responses ) what i was trying to ask was; will getting ( and or making ) a 10 ft cable and a 5 ft patch cable for the subs and even maybe a 10 ft cable for the right speaker but leaving the 50 footer on the right speaker make a noticeable sonic impact?

Like others have said, no sonic impact, but it might clean things up a bit on the visual/setup side.

another reason i keep my speaker cables as short as possible is cost. in my triamped system the low mid and high cables are different lenghts. i bet you know why. also beware of the aluminum/copper cables. yes one conductor is copper and the other conductor is aluminum. they have different electrical characteristics and aluminum is not as resiliant as copper and cannot be soldered.
