Hey all, this is my first post here (just joined)... I tried searching the forum for "bi-amping" threads and the search function didn't return anything. I quickly realized the search function seems to, at the very least not work the way I would expect, so I checked out the first 3 pages to see if there was a post on the exact subject above. There didn't seem to be, anyway:
I just received some polk monitor 50's from newegg a few days ago. With the help of a friend I have them installed and humming (thundering) along beautifully! I'm very impressed with the audio quality upgrade over my yamaha "starter" speaker set. That said, I can't help but want to eek every last bit of performance out of them, what can I say I'm a nut.. So I'm already going to be bi-amping these suckers, just as soon as I get my spool of speaker wire in from monoprice (14 guage).
My question is this (sorry for not cutting to the chase), reading over the instructions out of my Onkyo 605 user manual I it made a reference to removing the jumper bars connecting the tweeter and woofer termianls. At first I was a little confused since there wasn't an obvious connector bar, but then a light bulb went off and I realized that they must be referencing the brass plates located under the terminal posts running vertically. I'm 99% sure that must be what they're talking about but before I go tearing my speakers terminal connectors appart on the day my speaker wire arrives I just wanted to double check.
Other than that I'm feeling pretty confident about this process, the wireing diagram couldn't be eaiser and I'm pretty sure the 605 should successfully activate the bi-amping it's self once wired (perhaps after re-running Audyssey? I plan to anyway).
