    Having recently purchashed the BK XLS 200 SUB,which I might add is a fine sub,well made and at a very good price.Which leads me onto my query,at the moment I am using a pair of AE109 BI-wired,would there be any advantage to going back to using the AE109 two pin wiring,this I assume would make use of the speakers crossover rather than by-pass it,perhaps enhancing the output from the BK sub.
    many thanks for any thoughts on this.

    You won't be bypassing the speakers crossover even with a "biwire" configuration. If it sounds fine to you now then you won't be getting any changes by going back to a "standard" configuration - it doesn't cost anything to try for yourself though. :)

    Many thanks Evil John,Thought that Bi wiring may have effect on integration between main speakers and sub.Fully realise bi wiring can be controversail,and not everybody agrees as to the merits.
