    Yes, remove the jumper.
    Yes, it's just a double run of wire.

    With bi-amping you would best be served with using an external Xover and bypassing the speakers Xovers.

    Ummm... phase inversions at crossover freqs? impedence stablility? Not turning amplifier power into heat?

    Active bi amping is certainly better than passive biamp or biwiring. It's damn hard to do correctly, and probably not worth the trouble on most speakers, but it's hard to question that active biamping is ultimately better.

    Default really not that smart

    this is just a life long project for me i'm not in a rush ,but willing to learn . thanks for the input. well i have some wire that i bought used from a freind . good stuff in it's day . so i was told however times change . this is tributaries flat silver all i will do is the bi-wire for now pending cash flow . i also need to buy a set-up mic to see if that will help . the denon 3805 with the surround is nice for theater . with the music could use a little more kick . i think the rt 150 are a little power hungry , i like sound . once in a while you just want crank it . thanks fou your help .
