Ya you should try the speaker one. WHere you braid 3 10' wires like that, then braid those together. My fingers hurt so bad after one pair!!! In fact I never made the second pair

After a while you get the hang of it and it goes quickly. Remember not to braid too tightly or very loosely. You should get .7x out of x straight wire to be doing it right.
If it sounds good... it is good!
