You just need a pair of RCA splitters, such as these.

Plug a splitter into the the relevant pre-out on the pre-amp, then run two cables to two channels on the power amp. Remove the bars connecting the bi-ampable speaker's binding posts, and run speaker wire from the two power amp channels to the binding posts, maintaining the +/- pariring and polarity, as described and illustrated in the manual accompanying your biampable speakers (whatever they are). I therefore suggest reviewing that documentation for further clarification and hookup diagrams.

As to whether it will improve the sound: you will have to experiment for yourself. Responses here range from "none at all" to "night and day".
