Greetings,


I am looking at purchasing a pair of 3-way speakers that have 3 sets of speaker terminals, high, mid, low's. When I want to bi-amp it, do I:


a) amp the highs and mids together as 1 channel, and amp the lows separately?


or


b) amp the highs separately, and amp mids and lows together?


Just curious. Thanks for any info in advance.

i'd bi wire the mids and highs.


and give the extra amp to the subs.



alot of people think that bi wire isn't gonna do much. and I have to agree. but since the spear can do bi wire..might as well,, heh..

For better power distribution and usage, I agree with GB.


My speakers also have three pairs of posts, but the bottom pair drive the built-in sub amp, so it doesn't need power there. I bi-wire them with the highs on one wire and the mids on the other. I feed the sub amp with a line-level interconnect.


Technically, I guess you could say my mains are tri-wired.
