Length of speaker cable

Do both left and right channel speaker cables have to be the same length???

I’m going from passive to active so need to buy two new lengths of speaker cable but I have my SBL’s about six foot apart and was wondering if I used my two existing 5m lengths on the nearest speaker and then bought two longer lengths (maybe 7m) for the longer side.

If I have all the speaker cables the same length I’ll end up with a good six foot extra on one side.

Or should they all really be the same length??? Impedance etc etc

They should be the same length, or as the amp see’s it, the same impedance.
Fold, don’t roll, the excess.

As Mike says above, they should ideally all be exactly the same length.

I have always adopted this approach and was surprised to read this re Tellurium Q.
