    I have seen alot of speakers claiming that you can biwire them for better sound. I have been setting up home theaters for years and have never done this. What are the advantages of doing this? How is it done? Is it one speaker wire that splits off into 4 connections? Please help because I am getting a new receiver and going to rewire my system. If it makes a difference I will do the bi wire.

    Have you tried searching through past threads for information on this? Bi-wiring has been discussed in great detail several times on this forum, not to mention others.

    Yes, actually I have tried the search function. I did not come up with much. Also, I see alot of people saying, have you tried the search function. Well I am sure that alot of topics have been covered numerous times. I thought that was the point of this forum. I don't want to sound like a smart ass because I really do enjoy the forum and the people I have talked but come on, just a simple answer would be nice. Maybe someone has a new experience or perspective on biwiring that has not been covered in past threads. Lets be open minded.

    I did find some info trying biwire. I was thrying biwiring, biwiring speakers. I should have made it more simple. But I still feel like we should just help someone when they post a thread and not tell them to try the search function. This is how we get to interact with one another. Also someone might not be too familiar with how the forum works and might not know how to search.

    You shouldn't take offense at someone reminding you about the search feature of this site. So many questions get asked over and over again. The end result is that the people with really good answers get sick of typing the same response all the time...so they stop posting. You will be doing yourself a service to utilize the search functionality to its fullest extent. If searching does not answer your question then a new post certainly will and the new question/thought/idea will be greatly appreciated by everyone on this forum.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hey Saurav, didn't mean to sound that I was offended by you. Not at all. I'm not that sensative. No need to apologize. I am actually sorry for jumping ahead of myself. I do use the search function quite often, it is VERY resourceful, it's just when I typed in Biwiring, and then biwiring speakers, it came up nothing found. So I just figured there was some kind of problem at the time with the search function. And someone who is new to ths site needs to be aware of that function. I totally agree. So once again, sorry guy's, didn't mean to be so snappish. [​IMG]

    I intend to try it soon. I have the same speaker wire that I am currently using laying somewhere around, but I will not be able to get the same lenght as the existing ones. Do the wires have to be the same lenght? The difference is only a foot or two, but you never know, differences were heard with more trivial stuff. Perhaps I will wait and get the same lenght just to be safe.
