My Infinity Alpha's have upper and lower sets of binding posts. Since I am not bi-wiring my speakers which set of binding posts should be used?

Cut a short piece of wire and replace the jumpers with it. The brass jumpers included with most speakers really aren't that great. Bi-wiring from a single channel is the same as increasing the wire ga.

Use the same wire you are running to the speakers. It will improve signal transfer between the terminals, for the reason I already listed - the gold plated brass jumpers that come with nearly all speakers don't do the job as well as a simple piece of wire. When I tried it on my speakers, there was a noticable improvement over the jumpers. It was basically about the same as when I tried bi-wiring (using bi-wire cables of the same wire), and the cost is practically nil.
