Ted, no way to shorten other than to form a loop to take up excess)to my knowledge! Most likely new cables are only solution... Clark

Just do as Clark says and wrap them(not too tight and wire tie until you need to replace. If you can put it somwhere unnoticable even better.

New cables are between $19 and $29 from 7' to 24' long from

Fairly inexpensive to replace.
