    I am not sure about this . On my Yammy RXV 2400 can I bi- wire connect my fronts to gain me some more power for them ? Just curious for listening to audio ?
    Thanks ....

    Bi-wiring, which is connecting the woofer and tweeter sections of your speakers through separate wires, does not gain any power. However, you might be able to passively bi-amp by connecting the surround outputs to the tweeters and the main outputs to the woofers; then tell the receiver to duplicate the main signals to the surrounds. This will cause a slight increase in power ability and it will probably sound better. The only problem is you'd have to re-connect everything to listen in surround mode.

    I think I remember some Technics receiver has a switch allowing the main "B" outputs to be routed from other channels, allowing passive bi-amping in stereo mode while other speakers are connected. I don't know if the Yamaha has this feature.
