    Ok, my speakers (Eltax Millenium 500) only have 1 set of "pegs" on the back, but my amp (Pio 812) allows speakers A and B.
    It is electrically safe to place wired from the A and B outputs to the single "pegs" on the back of the speakers...
    In theory it all sounds ok but i ain't 100%...
    Thanks for any help...

    dont bother A/B is for speakers in another room (or dedicated stereo speakers) not Biwiring/Bi amping. Just use decent cable and it will be fine!

    It's electrically safe but it's not biwiring as such and should incur no benefits apart from doubling the cross-section of the speaker cable.

    I'm not going into the merits/problems with biwiring itself though :)
