Speaker Cable Upgrade

I'm really trying to fall in love with my Super Reverb reissue again... I've recently swapped tubes, but I still think I need to take it to a tech to have it totally serviced (doing that this weekend). How much would upgrading the speaker cable to a EA Siren improve the quality? Is it really worth it? Also, I know I'd want a right angle on one end, but what do I want on the other?

You can upgrade it to ordinary lamp cord and as long as the connections are good, that is about as good as it gets. Changing to a different pick can make more difference. Guitar cords are a much different matter.

EA Siren II is awesome. Huge improvement over the Canare speaker cable I was using. I actually prefer the EA to the Mulder Audio cable I had.

I've just rewired the inside of my vox BNX cab with EA Siren 2 and there is definitely a difference - thicker tone - better definition to the notes - cannot describe in words but there is a n improvement !

If that amp ain't working for ya a speaker cable ain't gonna do jack sheet.

Try new speakers first, or just ditch it and move on.
A new cable would be the very last upgrade I make on an amp and I would have to LOVE that amp and be certain it is a keeper.
