    I've just bought some terminated speaker cables - and I and thinking about buying some jumper cables…

    What are your thoughts on them..?
    Who does, them apart from Russ Andrews, and which ones should I buy, if any.?

    cheers

    You could make your own out of cat5 network cable for a couple of quid. have a look for some of the many posts on here and elsewhere about this stuff, you won't be sorry.

    Hi, I decided to try and make my own Jumper...

    well, I was going to try and get a hold of some spades and the only places I could find (on a saturday afternoon!) was a hardware store and Maplins...well, they only sold these real cheap and nasty affairs (69p for about 16 pieces...) which I was going to attach to some excess centre cable I have Gale XL315).

    anyway, after getting home I was going to test the spades, but after finding them too small for the binding posts anyway I just fitted the cables (about 6' each) and the difference is great!
    the bass is great - nice and smooth...well worth the effort if you haven't tried them already...
