Yes you can but the benefits are debatable. You use speaker "A" for the woofers and speaker "B" for the tweeters. See pg 16.
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

You can't post links from Yamaha's downloads because you have to register on their site. But Here's what they had to say.


Bi-wired connection


"The unit also allows you to make bi-wired connections to one speaker system. Use two pairs of speaker cables for each speaker (one for the woofer and one for the tweeter/mid-range). To use bi-wired connections, press Speaker A and Speaker B on the front panel so the SP A and B light up on the front panel display."


And don't forget to remove the binding straps between the terminals first.


I and many other forum members have tried b-wiring and found that there just isn't any improvement in sound quality to be heard. Maybe in theory it sounds like a good idea but I just don't think it's worth the trouble. And my Swans actually have three sets of binding posts. B-amping is a different story but only if you use two power supplies, not just the 6/7 channels of a receiver in a 5.1 setup.
