Hi all,


Got my Polk tsi500 today, it seems like it's not as easy as connecting the "red and black wire"? it has low and high frequency input? My denon avr doesn't have that output.. How do you connect with the avr?


Thanks!

Sounds like they are bi-wireable but you will hear a lot of people say it's not worth it to do. Plug them in as you normally would any speaker, just use one set of connections on the back of the polks.

don't waste your time, just connect them to one set of terminals.


You should get good performance out of them as those speakers have a high sensitivity and are easy to drive by any decent receiver.

make sure the brass "jumper" plates go from red to red and black to black, then connect your speaker wires to one set of black/red binding posts.


taking the brass jumpers out just separates the woofers from the mid/tweeter speakers. And yes, bi-wiring is pretty much a waste of time and resources.

It's actually set up for bi-amping not bi-wiring.

Well, bi-wiring does absolutely nothing as where bi-amping can actually give you an improvement.(sometimes). And there are many that dispute even that.
