    Well my speakers have finally arrived and my speaker cable will be arriving tommrow so I thought this would be a good time to ask how to bi-wire my speakers to my amp.

    Amp: Cambridge Audio Azur 540A
    Speakers: Wharfedale Diamond 9.1s
    Cable: Chord Carnival Silver Bi-Wire

    So with some visual aids could someone please tell me what should go where.

    Are you sure you've labelled your amp terminals correctly - they look wrong to me ?

    A wiring diagram is attached.

    Two cables will come from each terminal on the amp.
    You must remove the two metal links on each speaker (one links the two red terminals - the other links the two black terminals). This will then make each of the four terminals independant on the back of the speaker.

    assuming you don't want to use the B outputs for another set of speakers, and the amp allows you to select both A & B outputs at the same time, it will be easier to use the A outputs for (say) the mid/treble drivers and the B outputs for the bass, since you don;t have the problem of squeezing two lots of cable into one terminal.
