    Question Bi-Wire hook up to Single Terms

    With the new amp (Txsr701) i no longer have b chnl. I do have Zone 2 but no sperate amp. What i am trying (wanting) to do is hook up my Monitor 7's on my main system to see how they sound vs the HK AVR20 (65wts vs 100wts) in 2 chnl. My
    ? is its a pain in the a@@ to get behind the HT and hook up single run of wire vs the signal bi-wires that are hooked up now so i can hook up the M 7's. could i just use one of the sets of terms on the bi-wire and hook up to the 7's and not have any problems? Is it only getting 1/2 the signal from the AVR?
    Any input is welcome and always appreciated. Please no Armor All sugg ;)
