    i have a Yamaha DSP-AX620 and a set of Eltax liberty speakers can anyone shed any light on how to bi wire the front speakers?

    do i use speaker set A to one set of speaker posts and set B to the other?

    do i need a bi wire cable? can i use two runs of speaker cable to do this?

    is it worth it?

    any help would be welcome.

    thanks


    Gary

    In my view and in that of many others, it is a total waste of time.

    If you are in any way a handy man type of guy, make your own cable since it is much cheaper.

    Although I havn't tried it myself, a few threads here on the subject seem to conclude that rather than biwiring, your best bet is to replace the little metal conductors you get supplied with your speakers to connect the terminals with a length of your speaker cable.

    If you can find a few spare centimetres of cable it shouldn't be too hard to do and is a lot cheaper than "proper" biwiring!

    Bingo!

    The term 'proper' biwiring is something of a misleading phrase since biwiring is only proper to those selling the cables! :D
