    Considering this as an option for a bi-wiring alternative:

    Have a single wire connecting the amplifier to both positive terminals on the speaker, but having seperate wires from the speakers negative terminals back down to the amp (thus only using 3 wires instead of 4)

    This would save on cost, considering you'd only need 1.5x the length of wire required for each speaker, instead of 2x?

    I'm still not 100% clear on what you need in order to get bi-wiring to work. Do you need an amplifier that has the option to have both speaker terminals (A & B) selected at the same time? So 'speaker A' feeds the low end driver of the actual loudspeaker and 'speaker B' feeds the high end?

    It seems strange how biwiring is beneficial if the cables are twisted together at the amp end and going into just one speaker output... :confused:

    Try this for an explanation of the principles. It may give you a different perspective on the 'benefits' of what you're proposing.... :rolleyes:
