Well, at least two of the long standing members here knew what I was saying.
Let me ask you this; I have 4/12 in wall rated wire going from my amp to my center channel, the two positive and two negative wires are twisted together at the amp end and are connected to the pos and neg amp terminals, now here's where it gets tricky nicky
what was only two wires at the amp end, now becomes four wires at the speaker end, two pos terminals, two neg terminals, four wire connections BUT, only two wires back at the amp.
Is this not a bi-wire connection because I don't have two separate runs?
Again, and in my first post I did use the term pseudo. When you have a speaker with two sets of terminals, you are going to have a "pseudo" bi-wire of some kind weather its one set of wire and two silver plated concrete plates or the stock jumpers.
One electrical source, plus four terminals equals a bi connection.
