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.

I have Xavian xn125 speakers. How do I connect them in a bi-wired or bi-amp


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.

How To Bi-Amp And Bi-Wire Speakers!


What is the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping?
Bi-wiring is using the same power source (amplifier) but separately connecting that power source to a woofer and a midrange/tweeter on a speaker.

Bi-amping is using two separate power sources (amplifiers) and connecting one amplifier to a woofer and the other amplifier to a 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 terminal on the amplifier/receiver the positive terminal on the speaker. Connect the other wire from the negative terminal on the amplifier/receiver to the corresponding negative terminal on the speaker. Remove the jumper straps connecting the two sets of speaker inputs. Repeat this process for the second set of terminals on the speaker, connecting them to the same positive and negative terminals on the receiver/amplifier. Repeat the steps for each speaker you wish to Bi-Wire, connecting them to the appropriate terminals on your receiver/amplifier.

How do I bi-amp?
Bi-amping is similar to bi-wiring, but involves separate amplifiers: one for the woofer and one for the midrange/tweeter. Passive bi-amping involves a direct hookup between each amplifier and the speaker terminals. True bi-amping involves hooking the preamp to an electronic crossover that replaces the passive crossover network in the speaker. The active crossover then connects to multiple power amplifiers.

Monster clarity does not work wired


Mine wouldn't either. Now I have paired it with the Bluetooth and it installed something (drivers?), and now it works. So, now how do I know if it is always connecting Bluetooth or wired? I connected the wire and it is still working, so now how do know if I really need the wire or not???

What AJIN GOPAKUMAR says.

You can buy cables and speaker wire at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Parts Express or Amazon. Even a "dollar store".

One thing to keep in mind - do not fall the hype of people who want to sell you very expensive cables because they will sound "better". $2-8 for a set of RCAs should do nicely.

You don't need Monster Cables or their even more expensive brothers. There are many cables that fit your needs. One example on Amazon is "Hosa Cable CRA202 Dual RCA To Dual RCA Cable - 6.5 Foot". Another is Parts Express's "RCA Patch Cable 6 ft. Gold Plated" for $1.80 plus shipping.

More expensive cables will not hurt anything. But they won't help anything in your set-up.

And keep them short, if you can, for neatness ... though long ones won't hurt anything.

Before you buy speaker cable do some measuring ... and add several feet. You will be just fine with lamp cord or zip cord from a hardware store. "Speaker cable" is the same thing with clear plastic covering, often color-coded. This can be helpful because the most important thing to know about wiring speakers is that the MUST be in-phase -- red to red and white-to-white, or plus-to-plus and minus-to-minus. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! Check and double check!.

How are you? For HK990,How to do bi-wiring connection of the speakers? thanks


Sabve your money - it's BUY-wiring.

Bi-wiring does nothing but make you use twice as much speaker wire for the same electrical effect. Bi-amping assumes there are deficiencies in your electronics that must be worked around, again by using more speaker wire and separate amps.

Do some reading on the web about "bi-wiring".

How to bi wire polk rti a7 using avr 1600 harmon kardon reciever


You mean "buy-wiring"?

Before you go investing in boutique speaker cable (times two) read up on biwiring.

It's a bogus electrical theory to get you to buy more speaker wire.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bi-wiring

I don't see that capacity on this receiver.

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.

I need leads to connect my NAD C320 BEE amplifier to PSB T45 speakers. Not sure which plugs are needed to fit into the speakers.


From the C320 manual, Page 5...

11. SPEAKERS

Speaker terminals for speakers with an impedance of 4 ohms or more. Connect the right speaker to the terminals market 'R +' and 'R-' ensuring that the 'R+' is connected to the '+' terminal on your

loudspeaker and the 'R-' is connected to the loudspeaker's '-' terminal. Connect the terminals marked 'L+' and 'L-' to the left speaker in the same way.


Always use heavy duty (16 gauge; 1.5mm, or thicker) stranded wire to connect loudspeakers to your NAD C320. The high-current binding post terminals can be used as a screw terminal for cables
terminating in spade or pin sockets or for cables with bare wire ends.

BARE WIRES AND PIN CONNECTORS

Bare wires and pin sockets should be inserted into the hole in the shaft of the terminal. Unscrew the speaker terminal's plastic bushing until the hole in the screw shaft is revealed. Insert the pin

or bare cable end into the hole and secure the cable by tightening down the terminal's bushing.

Ensure bare wire from the speaker cables does not touch the back panel or another socket. Ensure that there is only 1/2" (1cm) of bare cable or pin and no loose strands of speakers wire.

Register and download the PSB manual for free at retrevo.com

http://www.retrevo.com/support/PSB-T45-Speakers-manual/id/23107ag412/t/2/

If you're pondering those jumpers on the back of the speakers, my advice is to leave them in place and ignore them. Connect the speaker cables to either plus or minus.

Bi-wiring does nothing but make you use twice as much speaker wire for the same electrical effect. Bi-amping assumes there are deficiencies in your electronics that must be worked around, again by using more speaker wire and separate amps.

I have 2 KEF Q35 speakers, i have them wired up as normal on the outside ports, but there are another set of wiring ports labelled HF (one positive one negative) what are these for? please help!!


These are quite common, and are just separate connection for each speaker in the enclosure. Just bridge the connections red to red and black to black with cable (use something like 5amp house wiring cable) and then connect your cable from your amplifier to one of the "ports" See http://www.brilliancehifi.co.uk/how-to-bi-wire-speakers.htm As you can see you could "biwire" if you wanted go further and improve the sound quality

I have had a set of Polk Audio SDA1 speakers that I had attached to an old but great Pioneer SPEC-1 pre-amp and SPEC-2 power amp. The old speakers had one connection for the right speaker positive and...


bi-wiring requires the removal of the copper jumpers between the hi and low speaker terminals. you can use two wire pairs twisted together at amp out connections and the four separate ends at each speaker, but the quality of sound will not be as good as buying quality bi-wire cables. But a pair of quality single set of wires at each speaker would be fine, but put jumpers back on and attach to the top terminals, they are designed that way. bi-wiring does allow the crossover to put out a little better sound. Hooking up four sets of wires to the a and b speaker terminals sounds bad. i have had alot of trouble with my rti10's and learned the hard way that it is best to pay more for wires with quality terminations.
