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.)
