I will soon be setting up a complete Monitor Audio Gold Series system in 5.1. My concern is with the front three. The front left and right are G20s and they are two and a half way spreakers with two bass/midbass drivers and a tweeter. The upper of the two drivers helps with the upper mid-bass ( I believe that's right). So assumeing that they are not true 2 way or true 3 way speakers, but are bi-wireable, I want to consider bi-wireing, and would like to hear your opinions on this:


Should I even consider bi-wireing a 2 1/2 way speaker, and if so, should I look at single bi-wire ( 1 cable with 2 spades at the amp and 4 at the speaker) or a double bi-wire ( 2 cables terminated together at the amp and running seperately to the speaker). Some companies offer both. But insn't a singe bi-wire the same as using a single cable and just leaving the speakers jumper on?


Your respone is greatly appreciated

Biwiring will give you nothing, real or imagined. Well, maybe imagined...


Also, to clarify, most 2.5-way speakers use two identical woofer/mids, with one running from it's lower acoustical limits up to around 100 Hz, and the other one running from it's lower limits up to the crossover frequency of the tweeter. The theoretical advantages are the speaker will have more headroom in the bass frquencies, and it won't have nearly as many comb-filtering problems in the midrange.


Nice speakers...enjoy them.
