Question Tri-wire bi-amp help needed.


Established Member
Hi guys,

hope you can help me out on the following, I'm about to take the plunge to buy a power amp.
currently my A85 is wired via Bi-wire to the tri wire speakers by:

Speaker terminal set 1: connected to the MF and with a bridge of cable to HF
Speaker terminal set 2:Connceted to the LF

I have a spair speakercable set, NON Bi wire.

is this possible:

Speaker terminal set 1: connected to the HF
Speaker terminal set 2:Connceted to the MF

Speaker terminal set 2: connected to the LF

What are your thoughts on this?

Unless you are planning to add a second P85 to tai-amp; I can't see any point in adding a third run of speaker cable.

Remove the LF cables from speaker set 2, plug them into the P85 output. Then just run RCA cable from the output of the A85 to the input of the P85.

Running bi-wire is no different to running thicker cable - why not just do that in the first place if your current cable is not large enough. Bi-amping on the other hand can yield some benefits.
