    Hi,

    Been over a year since I set up my speakers etc.. I have a yamaha 2050 and am trying to bi wire my speakers Paradigm monitor 7's. From what I remember I have 4 wires 2 positive and 2 negative per speaker, I put the positives and negatives together at the receiver, than I split them at the speakers right?? Some reason neither speaker working when I did that lol.

    So what I forget?

    Thanks

    The bridge makes no difference if you're just trying to get sound. You should have two wires, one from each of positive terminals on your speaker going to the + side of corresponding channel on your amp. Likewise for the negative side. Repeat as necessary.

    Frankly, when you get done, you most likely will hear no difference anyway.
