    That's right you heard it. I know I shouldn't have left it sitting around. Haven't even browsed through it yet and now it's gone. I e-mailed Paradigm yesterday and I am hoping that they will be able to help. Anyone have any other suggestions? Please give me some ideas...

    The only thing I read that seemed important is the bi-wire and bi-amp option.

    Have you gone to your dealer to ask for a copy? It looks like a standard manual for their Studios Series and not model specific. I couldn't see anything on their site.

    Do you have a fax machine? I can fax you a copy. Or do you have specific question(s)? LMK

    Ted,

    The manual for the Reference series is all the same if you have 100's, 40's etc. I have a bunch of them. Email me here Ted. I'll scan it and then send it to you via email if someone else hasn't done it already.

    If a slap is in order for anybody, it's probably for Paradigm. In this day and age, there's just no reason for a company not to put the owner's manual for all its products (past and present) up on the support section of their web page.

    The section on bi-wiring is simple enough (remove the jumpers and use two wires, and be careful not to make shorts or screw up the polarity.) Bi-amping is also pretty concise; they only recommend passive bi-amping, and talk a fair amount about "horizontal" vs. "vertical" which are only meaningful if you assume you're using 2-channel amps to do this.

    ...with the main speakers, anyway. The Studio/CC has a different manual, and I think the Studio/ADP does as well.

    Bi-wiring and bi-amping are the same?

    Both mean you remove the jumpers and use two speaker cables, but bi-wiring means the two cables both go to the same amp, while (passive) bi-amping means they go to to different amps.

    The manual suggests they can be good things, but I think the conventional wisdom on here is that you can get more bang for the buck with a single larger amp and a single larger cable.

    Active bi-amping may be a different story, but Paradigm doesn't recommend it (and it would require rewiring the speaker to disable its internal crossovers.)
