i recently purchase a pair of martin logan sl3's. i was running them with a 100 watt per channel yamaha receiver. here's my question- when i bi-wire the speakers, sound comes out, but when i use the jumper cables the receiver shuts down. it's been a long time since physics class in college but does this mean that the jumper cable connection is a series connection and the amplifier cannot handle the resistance? does it also mean that the parallel bi-wire connection is only being partially driven by the receiver?

I doubt you'll like this suggestion, but here it is: forget about driving those speakers with any receiver. You do them a great disservice and you'll probably greatly shorten the life of the receiver if it is working with them. They need a lot more current than any receiver can provide.


The quality of that speaker really dictates the use of separates to make them worthwhile.


Look into some reasonably priced separates and you will be amazed at the differences you'll hear.


Don't figure you'll like this but there it is.
