    Im a bit confussed at the mo as i have a set of monitor audio bronze ref speakers and a onkyo 606 resever.
    At the moment iv only got one set of red and black wires going into the speakers and iv not got the gold connecting like so.

    My first question is shall i connect them or not?
    My second is shall i get some more wire and bi-amp or not?

    You have to connect the gold bars for now mate.
    Each speaker is actually two speakers in one box and the bars connect them so you feed both with one pair of cables, as you are now.

    Bi-amping may well be worth it, it's your choice.
    If you do, that's when you take the bars off :smashin:

    You are splitting the speakers and feeding each one with it's own seperate individual amp, in effect. The idea is you end up with significantly more power to each speaker and this can have a beneficial result, especially for music.
    The results vary according to the speakers and amp.

    If you're extremely fussy about your music, it may be worth a try.
    But if it's gaming and film you use most, I don't think I'd bother, tbh.

    Again, it's your choice mate :smashin:
