If your cable has four ends at one side and two at the other connect positive to the amp and negitive to the amp for first speaker then go to the four cable end put in the first negitive to the top speaker input then the positive side and do the same for the bottom,also remember to take out the links between the sockets,now do the same for the other speaker.
Please note that some speakers dont sound much better when bi-wired but some gain a bit more bass and detail,also the sound stage may open up a little more.
hope this helps.
CABLE GUY.

Can i bi-wire the front left and right speakers


Not with this unit.

But WHY? Bi-wiring is a myth. Whether the channel's double wires join (dead short) at the amp end or the speaker end makes no electrical difference to the speaker or the sound. But it DOES get you to buy more esoteric wire. Cha-ching for them!!!

But to flip an old saying, believing is seeing (or hearing). Go for it if you want. Someone is always willing to take your money.

Dear Sirs, I have a Pioneer AV Receiver model VSX-817 and is connected to Monitor Audio Speakers (Fronts: BR5, Center: BR-LCR, Rears: BR1), Sub: MS309 (Mordaunt Short). I have connected each front...


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.

Can i connect 2 sub woofers to my onkyo receiver model tx-sr604 ,and if so how. and is bi wiring of front 2 speakears and surround 2 speakears any good iam using polk audios tsi300 as both front and...


You can hook as many subs as you like since the Onkyo only provides the Pre-Out Line Level to the amp(s) that drive it (them). I run two myself.

Bi-wiring is a personal choice and some swear by it while some of us swear at it in a modern home environment. The premise of bi-wiring is that your amps or crossover networks **** to start with so you have to do all this work-around.

My $.02 is you add complexity, waste speaker wire (which can be expensive if you subscribe to the theory that wire can change the sound other than at the cash register, but don't get me started on that), amplifier resources, and MAYBE you'll think you hear an improvement. Perhaps if you lived in an anechoic labratory you might. I think it's a crock.

If you look at the second diagram you'll notice the fundamental electrical circuitry of the speaker wire is essentially unchanged except you now have twice as much speaker wire. The same amplifier output posts still feed the same speaker input posts. How can this be electrically different?

You'll rarely find anyone who can produce a measured audible difference with any of the snake-oil schemes to get into your wallet. It's always flowery prose and faith.

Connected 8ohm speakers with monster wire to banana clips.Turned on unit says check speaker wires I then rechecked and turned it on then no sound but I can faintly hear the speakers -50dbs hat gives?


You didn't mention >>>>> if it worked before you added the Monster cables and banana plugs <<<<<.

Nor did you say what you found when you checked the speaker wires. If you found nothing you still need to investigate further.

When you make a change and things go south you have to start UN-making the change to find out what went wrong.

Faint sound overall usually means a Tape Monitor or Mute function is active.

How to do Bi wiring in 6.1


Remove the bridging links from the speaker terminals and run two equal lengths of speaker wire from the amp to the speaker. At the amp - speaker terminal, twist two of the same wires together. ( normally marked with a tracer color) Connect these into your left speaker output - terminal and tighten. Connect the two wires to both the negative terminals on the speaker. Repeat the same for the + side. Make sure wires are not shorting across the terminals.

Bi-Amping my speakers with HTR-5850


You can at a minimum, bi-wire your speakers by wiring the speakers with the A and B speaker outputs. The A speaker outputs end up running the tweeters and the B will end up powering the woofers.
