    It is the process of separating the low frequency signals from the high frequency signals. However, more often than not people hear very little difference in the result, if any at all.

    Hello Dave,

    Welcome to the forum.

    There's a concise post about bi-wiring (and the like) in our Primer section. Please check it out.

    Pure biwiring hardly makes any sense, electronically speaking.

    I tried bi-wiring and didn't notice a cleanliness added to the sound. When I bi-amped these dual wires it became a bit cleaner. I have never seen bi-wiring, or bi-amping in a 5, or 7-channel amp for home theater use. I see bi-wiring (in conjunction with bi-amping) with 2-channel (music) setups. I have seen a speaker from M&K Professional (www.mkprofessional.com) that is tri-amped (the 3-way amp is housed in the speaker cabinet). If you go to that site it is the side surrounds.
