Which set of bi-wire binding posts are you bridging the signal from? From the high-posts to the low-posts, or from the low-posts to the high-posts?
Do you find any notable differences in tonality and dynamics when the signal is jumped to/from one set of binding posts vs. the other?
The jumpers go from each pole of the lower connector (where the speaker cables attach) to the same pole of the upper connector (the RC network attaches to the + and - of the upper connector only).
Apologies - Can't seem to get the photo not to be upside down.
Its looks like on the lower terminals the speaker cable spades are sitting on top of the spades for the jumpers. Try it the other way around... this way the speaker cable spades are making direct contact with the copper cardas speaker post/terminal AND the spade for the jumper. May make things a little bit better. :-)

Merlin recommends that the main speaker cables get attached to the woofer post with jumper used to connect the tweeter post. Their rationale was that the tweeter needed a lesser gauged wire to sound best. When I had VSM, I tried it both ways and could not hear a difference.
