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.

Don't understand how to connect my speakers


the 4 inputs are for biamping, (using separate amplifiers for low and high frequencies). just leave the pins in place and connect the amplifier to one red(+) and one black(-) connector on the speaker. It has an internal crossover to protect the tweeter.

You can use a piece of speaker wire to replace the missing bar. those speakers are designed to be used with the bars in place for normal use. they can be removed if you are bi-amp/bi-wireing them.

Peavey sp2xt speakers horn makes no sound when plugged into normal input. Horn works fine when plugged into the high side of the crossover.


High side speaker input jack defective, as they are switch also and if you plug the wire from the amp in full range and no hf sound but connecting directly to the bi-amp hi does, then your female 1/4 plug at crossover is defective for sure.

My friend has a set of infinity il 40 The speakers have 4 terminals on back hf top 2 and lf bottom 2 why 4 terminals if they are full range speakers and which do you hook them up to


They're supposed to be jumpered together (plus-to-plus; minus-to-minus) and you can run speaker wires to either pair.

Do some web research on BI-WIRING to see why the speakers within each cabinet have the ability to be run separately. Hold on to your wallet if you buy into the hype.

Leave them in, do some reading on Bi-Wiring (BUY Wiring), chuckle to yourself and enjoy the sound. Connect one positive to a positive and one negative to a negative. With the jumpers in place there is no electrical difference.

I could find no articles or ads that mention anything non-standard about this speaker (like bi-amp capability, which it clearly has).

Tie the 2 minuses together; and the two plusses to each other and run your normal plus and minus to the plus and minus on the speaker.

Be advised the 4-ohm nominal impedance might be on the low side for your amp. Check its requirements.

Do LF and HF +/_ both be connected and if yes do they both go to speaker system A or separate to A and B on the amplifier.


From the factory, those are equipped with "jumpers", one for red-red and one for black-black. This allows for one speaker cable to power one speaker.

The jumpers can be removed, allowing for "bi-wiring", where you run two leads from a single amp channel to both inputs on each speaker. There's also "bi-amping", using a treble amp and a bass amp dedicated to each input.

If the jumpers are missing, you can use a short piece of stripped speaker wire to reconnect the upper and lower binding posts, just be sure to match colors.clmrt5000_0.jpg

Bi amp


Hi there, I am assuming that you wish to BiWire the speakers. This involves removing the link on the back of the speaker box and running additional speaker leads for the HF drivers, as well as cable for the LF drivers. BiWiring allows you to use different cable that has been designed with high frequency signal path in mind. It may feature things like silver plating, low capacitance, or as many other "features" as can be tagged to the cable to sell it as a specialist HF conductor. The benefits may be subtle, and not be that noticeable. It does isolate the potential voltage drop along the length of the cable associated with LF energy away from the HF side of the speaker system, and take advantage of Skin Effect, where HF energy tends to travel on the surface of the conductor.
Using a single cable for each channel and leaving the links fitted is perfectly fine and will operate no worries. You could go and spend the extra cash and upgrade your cables to HF and LF BiWire.... the sky is the limit on cost here for what may not be a noticeable difference:)
BiAmping in a different story where much more performance increase is achieved by using a separate channel to amplify HF and LF signals. But you need an amp that has a built HF and LF outputs for each channel to do this. They exists but I have not seen any surround amps that have it.
Go with decent quality realistically priced speaker cable first, then add your HF BiWire to the rig if you are looking for that little bit extra from it:) Good luck, and happy listening.

regards
Graeme
