Question about Bi-Wire jumpers


I recently bought a pair of Spendor SP100's. These speakers are tri-wireable. I have bi-wire cables and have them conected to the woofer and midrange terminals with the factory jumper plates from the midrange to the tweeter. I have read that there is a great improvement to be had if you replace these brass plates with a high quality jumper cable. I have been looking at jumper cables but a friend of mine who is a jeweler has offered to replicate the factory plates in pure silver at a nominal cost. Would this be an worthwile improvement over the brass plates or should just buy decent quality jumper cables?

Emilio, just an opinion: Avoid the plates (even silver), go with wire. A high quality wire will be a definite improvement over the stock plates, and I seriously doubt that replicating the stock plates in silver will offset the better transfer characteristics of wire (time delay, coherence, etc.).
...and besides that, the silver available to jewelers is not very pure, or at least it's not as pure as the copper or silver used in wire.
You might try making jumpers with the same bi-wire cable your using now.
Just a quick question...

Isn't it better to run your wire to the tweeter / midrange first, then jumper to the woofer section?

Or is it speaker dependant?
The better plates are minimal sonic addition in line.
The majority of cable sound is in termination, so you may benfit from termination. Pure copper still sounds best to me.

Stealing a line from the old Sam T. --- "maybe you should try"; the 12 gauge copper magnetic or motor wind wire. You might like it.

And since we're on the topic, what's inside your cross overs, 16 gauge plain jane copper coils??? Solen or worse caps???

Audionervosa at it's finest.
