    There are two sets of binding posts for bi-wiring/bi-amping, but if I am not going to do that then does it matter which set I use? It doesn't say anything in the manual about it.

    Allen,

    As long as you leave the jumper between the post, it does not matter which set you connect it up to. I think I remember reading that the top ones are for the Tweeter and the bottom ones are for the mids. Hope this helps!

    Tim is correct; with jumper in place it matters not. With the jumper gone, the top set runs to the tweeter and the bottom set runs to the woofs.

    I've heard of some people connecting to the tweeter posts because it sounds better. This is because the jumpers aren't as good conductors as copper wire, so better to connect directly to the tweeter and let the woofers get the "leftovers." Go figure [​IMG]

    I would suggest connecting to both sets of posts and doing an A/B test on the same audio source to see which you prefer.
