I think I've found some Spatia left over from the FH3s.  Does this look right?  If so, can someone remind of the science as to why a cross sectional area of about one third is as good, or better (based on all the Spatia user experiences i've read) than what I've been trying to work with?

Hi Ifor,
The larger is I guess about 2.5mm2, good enough to carry up to 30 amps. To me this is overkill for a speaker rated at a few watts taking at most 2-3amps for full output.
I like to think of Spatia as being far more "agile" in its ability to carry the signal.
Whatever the reason, Spatia brings a significant improvement to the sound.

Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

Saved by Spatia.  It's not pretty, but it's done.

In my experience the material and construction should be the answer...
