    I'm looking into getting Biwire speaker cables for my center channel but I was wondering if I should go ahead and get biwires for my fronts as well or do you think that biwiring the center channel will be good enough.
    Thank you!

    biwiring will essentially increase the effective gauge of the wire you're currently using. if you're looking for a tangible audible benefit, you won't get it this way.

    The benifits or not of bi-wiring speakers has been argued to death on the forums. The pro side, the con side, no pun intended. It's a subject that allot have strong feelings one way or another, seems to be not allot of middle grond on the subject..

    Links to writtings on the subject of proper bi-wiring and bi-amping abound along with peoples personal thoughts, experiences, and even speaker tests on the subject.

    A search here HTF and at Google on the subject, should bring forth lots to read and you can then make your own mind up to go forth or not.
    Will it make a difference, I don't know as "only you" can make that decesion in the end if you were to proceed with it.

    Chu's point, I do agree. It dose (effectivly=larger gauge wire) that definitly is true and doubt most would argue that point.

    Cheers
