    Hi All,

    I've just purchased an ONKYO 609 to go with my Mordaunt Short speakers and just need some advice with the wiring.

    The Speakers have 2 x +/- terminals on each (high x 2 & Low x 2).

    This was fine while wired up to my amp as it was split but now that I have wired up the AV reciever to them it seems I'm only having a choice between either Hi or Low and not both.

    Does anyone know the best way to solve this?

    Can I just pick one of the speaker inputs and daisy chain some cable to the other?

    Thanks in advance,

    Paul

    Just use a bit of speaker cable between the 2 sets of speaker terminals. The speakers should have supplied with a jumper bar connecting the 2 sets of terminals. If this is missing then speaker cable will be fine.

    Hi PSM1,

    What I did was the second option on the link below:

    How to Bi-Wire Speakers

    Is this fine or will the sound quality be better using your method?

    Cheers,

    Paul
