    I plan to buy a set of used polk RT55i"s to use as front mains. I read that the best sound is obtained through "biwiring" them!! However I don't know what that term means??

    Thanks,
    Tim

    It means running two sets of speaker wire from a speaker out terminal on a receiver or amp to the dual sets of binding posts on the speaker.

    As for benefits, I doubt you'll notice much, if any, unless you are using high gauge wire to begin with, since it is essentially increasing the the overall size of the wire to the speaker.

    And also try a search, this has been discussed thoroughly, and there are several very recent threads on this too.
