Question about Monitor Audio Bronze B4 Speaker
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.
