Bi-Wiring from speaker sets A & B...

I visited my brothers gaf the other day and had a look at his hi-fi. He has a set of B&W P4's and has bi-wired them but has used his Arcam 10's speaker set A for the top terminals and his speaker set B for the bottom terminals. At the time he seemed only to be running on speaker set A. What would be the effect of this. He is adament that it sounds great (although he's had it wired this way from day 1). The dufus is wrong surely?

Sounds like he has the tweeters running on Speaker A and the mids/bass running on Speaker B or vice versa. So if he is only using Speaker A he´ll only get half the sound! I´m assuming he has removed the jumper bars from the terminals on the speakers??

That's what I've been telling him. The jumper bars have been removed. Presumably if he runs both speaker sets then he'll be ok - or should you only really run them from 1 - logically running them from both should be ok. No?

My brother not a great one for reading manuals - I remember him complaining about a lack of bass a few years back and now he owes me £20. Ha ha. Thanks for the reply Jase

If the jumper bars are removed then all he has to do is switch on Speaker B and he´ll have the sound that he´s been missing!:D

Tell him to keep the 20 quid and use it to get his ears syringed!:p :D

If he has been listening with just the tweeters running then he's effectively been listening to a Bose system then. :eek:

Push speakers "B" when he isn't looking. :devil:

Don't crank up the sound for a day or two, the woofers still need running in:D . Tweeters will be fine, if a little tired.
