I try to do as much reading and research as I can before asking a question that I'm sure has been answered many times, but . . .
I think that I know the basics of bi-wiring and the difference between bi-wiring and bi-amping. However, there is one thing I'm not sure about. To bi-wire, do you have to have an amp with A and B speaker connections? In other words, if you have an amp with only one set of binding posts, can you still connect both sets of speaker cables to the one set of binding posts, even though, at the speaker the 2 sets of speaker wires are connected to 2 sets of binding posts?
To further clarify: If an amp has 2 sets of binding posts (typically labeled A and B), internally are both sets of binding posts just connected in parallel to the amp output stage. (I realize that there may be switches involved in order to cut the "A" on or off, or the "B" on or off.) But, other than the switches, is there any circuitry that makes the 2 sets of output posts special or different?
Thanks, everyone. This is a great forum. I don't post that often even though I've been around quite a few years.
