All well and good for a single wire. Unfortunately for the theory, supply a pair and the inductance of the right-hand bend is almost precisely compensated by the inductance of the other wire's left-hand bend.

So run your speaker leads with one wire going from the amp to the left and the other from the amp to the right. It will give you a single room-sized loop that might even come up to a pico-Henry of inductance.

(And no, I do not plan to calculate it.)
