How does bi-wiring work?

To start, I do bi-wire my main speakers. However, I am somewhat confused about how bi-wiring works given that the speakers have internal crossovers and the signals received by them have the same full frequency range going to both sets of terminals.

I confess that I don't see any difference from single wiring in terms of the speaker's performance. What am I missing?


I have separate amps some for base some for mid some for high on electronic crossover.tri amp in mono disadvantage is 6 amps for 2 speakers no cross taLk

Anyone with even a modicum of electronic savvy knows that bi-wiring is nothing but hooey.  Others who argue differently are just displaying their ignorance.


Biwiring makes a noticeable difference in my three sets of ATC speakers. I have done the experiment numerous times. I also found that I preferred the sound with the stamped stock jumpers rather than expensive jumpers that I have tried. Go figure!

I add that I have a modicum of electronic savvy!

i guess i should have made the AND font size 60…. and separate the bass wire 4” from the mid / high….…..

every now and then reading comprehension kicks in and somebody borrows those frequent flyer shotgun biwire Audioquest hyper litz Type 6 cables…. 


Biwiring is nonsense. It does nothing but might cause a phase/time issue.....BiAMPing is a huge improvement to many speakers with a good crossover BEFORE the amplifiers. That is truly what the four terminals should be referenced for.
