    Hi Guys,

    I have recently purchased the Pioneer AX5AiS receiver and realised that it’s “Rear Surround” speaker terminals only has terminals for 1 set of left and right speaker cables. My “Rear Surround” speakers have TWO sets of speaker terminals on EACH speaker (one for bass and one for treble). How do I connect this up? Can both sets of speaker cables go into the same terminal on my receiver?

    Thanks.

    From positive terminal (+) of receiver goes two cables to the red terminal of speakers, and from negative terminal(-) of receiver goes two cables to the black terminals of speakers. This is one way of bi-wiring which is explained in my Yamaha speakers manual. Cables must be same quality and spec.

    I would question the benefits of bi-wiring rear speakers, front speakers - yes but if you have some spare cable it is an easy procedure.
