Re: TX-SR506 Bi-Amping
If you select bi-amping the device will use a second amp for your rear speakers, this indicates that in your setup menu you probably have deleted the rears (set to None). Try to find the settings for your rear speaker in your setupmenu and see if they are selected in normal operation. If all fails, see if you can reset teh device back to factory settings, sometimes software can get confused after using for a while. Resetting should than fix most problems.
You can also check and see if there is maybe a software update available for your device, loading and installing is explained in either the file or on manufacturers site.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but
connecting that power source to a woofer and a
midrange/tweeter on a
Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers)
connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier
midrange/tweeter on a speaker.
How do I bi-wire?
Your speaker must have two separate positive and negative
connections (one set for the woofer and one set for the
midrange/tweeter). Connect one wire between the positive

Bi-wiring basically works wtih one amp. You need a crossover network and a signal doubler to use two amps (bi-amping). There are many diffent ways to bi-amp (horizontal, vertical,...) This link: - -http://www.soundstage.com/synergize/synergize031998.htm-- explains them all. Bi amping is usually not worth the extra price and complexity when used on smaller speakers.
Bi-amping indicated that you have two amps, one for the tweeters, adn another for the woofer, in a two way system. If you don't have two seperate amps, you can use the speaker A & B outputs to run seperate speaker llines to each set of speaker inputs, but that will not be true bi-amping. Another alternative is to use jumpers to connect the speaker inputs together, this not needing seperate amps.

If you're NOT bi-amping or bi-wiring them, leave the jumpers on.
Unless you were already stating with junk for electronics there is not a lot of evidence that either of those schemes would result in anything audibly superior, but they WILL cost more due to the expense for extra amplifier channels and boutique speaker wire.
you are actually not bi-amping the unit, you are bridging the amp. this really only works as long as all channels produce equal power. next the bad news is that typically home stereo amps are not wired internally to bridge channels.
bi-amping a speaker refers to connecting on channel to the highs and on channel to the lows. the receiver would need to be be able to process the outputs via a crossover network to split the frequency range in half so the appropriate frequencies went to the correct speaker.
