Do they have to be bi-wired or can they be connected with
a lone speaker cable?
Generally, speakers that can be bi-wired can also be wired with a single wire, just like any other speaker. But it's best to ask about specific models.
I can't think of one speaker that was bi-wriable that could not be run with a single wire pair (that doesn't mean they don't exist). Once you jumper the two terminals, you are closing the loop for the x-over, making it effectively a single terminal speaker. Use a short run of the same speaker wire to do this, rather than the cheap brass jumpers that come with most bi-wirable speakers.
If it's biwirieable, it can be run with one wire and a jumper. This accomplishes the same thing.
however, if it is designed to be used as passive biamp only, then it is NOT biwiriable set up as such, nor would it be wireable with a single wire and jumpers.
So bottom line is if they are biwireable, they can be run with single wire and a jumper.
