It was like a new set of speakers.

I had tried multiple jumpers and jumper configurations and this was the one that worked for me.

All standard and non-standard disclaimers apply. YMMV.
Rather than going with a shotgun bi-wire (for now ), I opted for this more extreme max'ing out of my jumper strategy for the R1s;

This improved the already impressive bass and sub-bass performance of the R1s with even better articulation/all other aspects. It also has had the side effect of improving the mids and treble behavior of a speaker beyond even what I had been experiencing to-date.

I have not brought myself yet to try the 'diagonal' methods of jumpering again; there is something about effectively partially reversing polarity on the speaker that is causing me to shy away from this (for now).

Just as a point of clarification regarding either diagonal jumper connection method, there is absolutely no reversal of polarities connected - not effectively or partially. Positive speaker wire connection is still only made and jumpered to the other positive speaker terminal, and likewise for the negative connections. The diagonal jumper connection schemes only alter which terminal is directly connected to (one to the upper and one to the lower) and then the corresponding direction of the jumper if your jumpers are considered directional. There is no cross wiring between any connection polarities and it would be a real problem if there was.
