    My center channel has 4 binding posts so I bought some better cables bi wire and I was amazed at hpw much cleaner everything sounded. Now my tower speakers only have the normal 2 binding posts would I notice a difference if I were to bi wire those as well?

    Thanks, MArk

    A very controversial subject! Consider the following thread which dealt with biwiring Paradigms. At the very end of the thread, a method is presented whereby you can determine for yourself whether biwiring makes a difference.

    I tried Bi-wiring my Paradigm Ref speakers using Canare 4S11 wire. Could not tell the difference.
    I also tried Bi-amping these same speakers and there was a very noticeable improvement. If you have a spare amp its worth trying.

    Wow if everything sounded amazingly clearer after snake-oiling biwiring your original speaker cables must have been dreadful!
