    Jumper cables Empty Jumper cables

    I am using STOCKED jumper cables I received with my B&W803diamonds since I am using the 803 for 2applications HT& 2channel.
    My question is I read that many people invest in quality jumper cables....even silver so I am asking if there is anyone here using jumper cables that has experienced a difference if they upgraded.
    If that is the case...recommendations please.
    Thanks

    I really don't think that's necessary however it's your choice. Use a nice, thick piece of copper wire. Or silver wire if you have some but really, this is a shallow rabbit hole and it's not worth spending money on this.

    I use silver jumpers but think gauge is a more important consideration, even though most jumpers are a very short run. I would keep it consistent with your main speaker cables.

    My first thought when I saw the thread title were for cables to start you car or amp. I refuse to pay high prices for cables I can get at AutoZone for a reasonable price.

    Jumper cables are usually 1 foot or less in length.  I do suggest avoiding CCA (copper-clad aluminum) speaker wire - which is mostly what you'll find at local non-stereo stores.  But otherwise just about any copper speaker wire will do.  The appropriate connectors (spade, banana, bare) will of course make set-up easier.
