The family cat chewed the wire on a power supply to the powered speakers on a PC. Is it ok to "splice" them back togehter somehow? The power supply says it is a "Class II"; I/P:120VAC 60Hz 23VA; O/P: 12 VAC 1500mA. I was thinking about splitting the wire down the middle to separate the (copper) wires, stripping back about 3/4 inch black plastic insulation, then twisting the matching wires back together, and either using electric tape to recover, or I have some yellow wire nuts that I could use to connect. Is either method safe? If yes, is one better than the other? Or should I just go buy a new power supply? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Yes, go ahead and splice the wires back together. Cut out the damaged area, strip the insulation back, twist the wires and wrap with electrical tape.
