You can buy the cable at different lengths 5,10,15,30 meters with end fittings in place. yes you can splice the cable, I had to due to an accident cutting the cable and being a poor cruiser I shortened it by 2 meters and rejoined the cable about 6"from the arays long thin strip plug, this kept the join inside the aray and out or the weather.
