    That artical is good and all, but how do I do Bi-Wiring, and what do I need to do it. And what is it used for in a 5.1 channel setup?

    Scott,
    Bi-wiring is taking two speaker wires from the same speaker output on your receiver or amp and connecting each to a different input terminal on a set of bi-wirable speakers.
    Basically, each wire ends up feeding one or two of the drivers in the speaker and not the whole speaker. Of course, this only works on speakers that have two sets of input terminals (most don't).
    Now, if you ask "Will bi-wiring my speakers make them sound better?" ..the answer is slightly debatable [​IMG]
