    With biwireable speakers, I don't know. If you want to translate it to speakers with a single set of posts then just substitute the + and - symbols on the woofers in the diagrams with the + and - on the home speakers. But then you have to deal with the crossover and all and it would proabably sound better just getting a better amp :)

    (If there's one thing I hate about audio it's wiring. Home theater doesn't help at all either. You get digital interconnects, but there's a million other things to deal with too)

    Did you dream how much cherry veneer you'd need to resurface them to match the rest of your collection? :)

    Default Resurfacing in Veneer.

    Subject: CHERRY F. C. VENEER

    From:constantines.com
    Hi,
    5 pieces of that veneer would be a total of $176.87. That is including shipping. I will have to check if I have that many in stock.
    Thank you.
    This is not a dream, I already ordered it how much I need to resurface it.

    I believe it would be an excellent choice of Polk to make some true, top dollar, no bars held gear.....! I demand official responses!!!!!

    So no one can answer the question about the Dual Binding Posts on a tower and how you'd connect the speakers in series?

    brett,
    You can't connect them in series. The only way to do so would be to modify the x-over.
    Just wondering. Why would you want to connect your 2 binding posts in series?

    Organ, read up - we're trying to create 8 ohm LSi's

    Aaah I see. Adding a 4ohm resistor at the amp(or receiver's) output will increase the impedance to 8ohms nominal. Won't sound as good but you'll get 8ohms LSi.

    Parallel just run all the positves together and all the negatives together. and series would be run one wire to the positive of one speaker to the negative of the other speaker and then hook up your amp to the positive and negative of both speaker ,If I could draw you a diagram I could explain it better.Your higher dollar amps have no problem running four ohms.

    And it took you almost 7 years to figure that out?

    You have to examine the crossover in question first. Is the first component in the tweeter crossover a resistor? If so, two resistors in series do not sum together, in fact it would lower the circuit's resistance. If this is the case, then you should replace the first series resistor with one slightly larger.
    If the first item is a cap, then no worries.

    I'm sure you know this already-just don't want anybody else getting the wrong idea.

    I'd like to see a speaker with the clarity of a electrostatic/ribbion speaker and the slam of a Cone driven speaker with Polks name on it of course. That was in roughly the same price league as there other speakers.

    However I don't think that will happened any time soon.
