    I just bi-wired my Monitor 9's and think it is a definite improvement in the sound quality.

    But I had to recalibrate my speaker levels with Avia, they were a few decibel levels higher, does this sound right?

    Not knowing any specifics – like what gauge wire were you using before and after, cable length, etc. – it’s impossible to say.

    But it really doesn’t matter if it “sounds right” or not, Ken. If you find you need to recalibrate, then do it.

    Bypassing the internal crossover could account for something...

    Arthur, I think that wud be the case in ACTIVE BI-AMPING.

    Ken, I biwired the same spkrs a coupla weeks after I had them, with the same Monster XP, and to tell the truth I didnt hear any difference. But they are still biwired!

    Bill, I tend to disagree. Check out this article on bi-wiring.

    Arthur, you're a gentleman.

    This is one of Jon Risch's more tech'l articles and my eyes began to glaze, so I'll concede. I THOT you were referring to opening the spkr cabinet to physically modify the X-over, which of course doesnt apply to bi-wiring.
