    I am looking into bi-wire speakers. How would I connect these to my 5ES? On the received end, for a speaker, would I have to connect all four wires to a single binding post via the "screw down the binding post" method? Sorry if my questions are silly.

    The best thing to do would be bare wire/spades on the screw-down part for one set and bananna plugs on the other set (same post). I don't think you could easily fit two bare wires in one binding post. You could also buy/make a bi-wire cable that only has two connections on the receiver end but four on the speaker end. Or, you could just use one set of speaker wires regularly and keep the jumper between the posts on the speaker (or replace it with a small piece of wire, which some say improves signal conduction).
