Question about Monitor Audio Bronze B4 Speaker

1 Answer

Bi amp OK, Got my new toys all set up RXV1700/DVDS1700 and Monitor Audio BR5 AV package minus the sub. Now in the reciever handbook it shows to bi-amp see fig1 it shows the main left /right fronts connected to the upper speaker terminals. Now in the Monitor Audio BR5 handbook it states this http://www.fixya.com/support/p2152-m...-21228/page-13 It mentions "The top terminals are for the HF, and the bottom terminals are for the LF. In the cases where there is a mid bass unit (BR5 and BR6), this is connected to the top terminals" Not convinced I will be doing the right thing if I follow what it says in the Reciever handbook. Please point me in the right direction? I am itching to fire it all up Thanks in advance Attached Filesfig1.doc (63.5 KB, 0 views)

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

Did you remember to remove the shorting link on the MA BR5 speaker terminal ..When you biwire the speakers you should remember to loosen the speaker terminal nuts and remove the shorting link plate between the HF and the LF terminals or you will short the amplifiers two channels together through the link. And modern amplifiers will take a lot of abuse at low volumes but at high volumes the protection circuit will turn off the device.

look at this picture...

http://www.helpus2move.com/sold-items/b-w-dm602-s3-stereo-speakers-bowers-wilkins/

The vertical jumpers are removable if one wishes to BI-amp them. If not, leave them in place and connect your speaker wire conventionally - plus to plus, minus to minus.

The picture here...

http://community.whathifi.com/forums/post/265617.aspx

shows what to do if the jumpers are missing. Just fashion a short jumper for each to connect the top woth the bottom on each side.


Google bi amplification speakers if you're bi-curious. ;-)

I am having trouble getting the Playskool dance cam to show up on our TV monitor. Is there a special TV setting I should be aware of? Shold my DVD and VCR be turned off? What channel do I need to set it...


Yes, you will likely need to change the AV (audio video) input on the TV to RCA
You should be able to do this using the remote control look for a button that says input or AV or using a setting button look for a way to change the audio video input to RCA may even show a pic of red white yellow cable.

I have just purchased a home cinema system: SONY 46" LCD, KEF3005 SPKS, SONY STRDA2400ES RCVR, SONY S55O BLURAY. ALSO A VIRGIN HD+ BOX. CAN YOU ADVISE BEST WAY TO CONNECT THIS ALL TOGETHER FOR BEST...


connect all source devices to the Sony LCD tv inputs. and connect the audio output from the tv to the aux input or any one input of the audio reciever. This way you can just leave the av reciever on and control all the input switching with te tv remote. Avoid connecting all the av sources to the reciever and the tv as a monitor from the video out of the av reciever. Just use the av reciever to reproduce the desired audio and do all the input switching with the tv remote. This will simplify the operation an lessen the chance of someone changing the audio settings of the av reciever.

My recommendation would be to double check the back of you crossover and make sure everything is hooked up correctly. If you crossover is convertible like my DBX223 xl is from Stero to Mono and Three way to two way the connections on the back changes roles.
