What to do with excess cable?

Hello everyone.

My integrated amp sits behind the right speaker in my setup. This means that using equal length speaker cables I am left with a lot of excess cable for the right speaker. I know that bundling it is generally frowned upon so what do you think I should do with the excess? Could anyone point me to a nice example of how to handle it?

Moving the amp isn't really an option for me. - FYI

Thanks for your suggestions

Matt

Lightly bundle

Make a bundle (coil) that is more than 12" diameter and tie it with a computer cable tie. Bundling is bad more when it's tightly coiled in a small spiral, which can in theory create a magnetic winding.
