So I recently ordered 2 Polk Monitor 60 loudspeakers and saw a picture of the backs of them on newegg.com. I noticed that there are two sets of connections on the back and was just wondering what that was all about.
Do I have to connect two sets of wires into each speaker or can I just use one? I will be going from an Onkyo TX-SR507 receiver so how exactly would I connect two sets of wires to each speaker? What would be the benefits?

Thanks for the help.

Just use one set of wires and leave the metal bridges in place.

The two sets of connectors are for bi-amping. If you have two amplifiers, you can drive the highs and lows separately, supposedly with an improved sound quality.

Agreed.

They are for biamping as stated or biwiring. I don't see any real benefit considering the extra effort of running more sets of wires
