    I have a pair Fluance SV-10's and I noticed something that seems weird. They have dual binding posts for Bi-amp or Bi-wire. Theres a metal bridge for single use. I took the bridge off and connected my speaker wires to the bottom terminals for the LF. There were a lot of voices comming out of the sub. Is that weird??

    No.. you have them hooked up wrong. Since you are not bi-wiring them, You need the bridge to feed a signal to the midrange and tweeter.

    I know, i did that on purpose to test the woofer regardless of the HF. I guess the reciever is still going to send all frequncies though huh? Hey you got a sub with your set up? if so what? I was looking at the DB-200

    If your speakers are set to large in the receiver setup, then yes, you get full range at the speaker. You hear voices because voices can extend well into lower midrange.

    Do they state the crossover freq from driver to driver for the speaker.

    With the LF post wired up (no straps hooked up) and a full range signal sent to it, there could be a few reasons why your hearing some higher freq information.

    Leaky & or poorly designed crossovers using cheap/er components, being one of them.

    If it's a 2 way speaker then you would naturaly hear some higher freq material when only the LF speaker posts are wired up with no straps.

    Not knowing the SV-10 personaly, I certainly can't say....!

    On a side note:
    Even with higher end speaks that are Bi or even Tri Wireable/Ampable, there is a very "small" if that IMO, sound difference as opposed to leaving the straps/bars/wire on the posts and (NOT Bi-wiring)... "Some" say they hear a big difference, but many question if this was done in a D-blind test, could they then pick out the bi-wired speaker/s over the single wired/straped, & everytime...

    Certainly some $$$$ speakers are of much higher quaility and a difference when Bi-wired might be more noticable.

    Bi-amping on the other hand, done properly, can make a huge difference. Few will argue that point, aside from "how to do it right"...

    Many threads on both these subjects. A search will bring plenty to read if your so inclined...

    Cheers

    800hz xover would be the reason why you hear voices.
