    I just got my new diamond 8.1's but I have a question about hooking them up. I also got the diamond center. All the speakers are bi wireable. In the book for the center channel the diagram shows how to hook up it and the bookshelfs. I will not be bi wiring it so it shows to connect the positive high frequency and the negative low frequency. The actual manual for the book shelfs showas to connect the positive high and negative high. My thought is that it doesn't matter as long as the jumpers are in place because the signal is going to both anyway. Is this right. Thanks

    With the metal straps in place you would simply wire as usual.

    Its important to make sure the bars make good contact with both the top and bottem posts, but as you suspect it makes no difference which post accpects the wire.

    So far I like them. they have already started sounding better as they have broken in.
