    Audioquest Bi-wire

    Can someone please how these bi-wire combos work? For example, for the bi-wire William Tell Zero + Bass combo, I would be buying two runs of cables, one Zero and one Bass? My speakers are bi-wire (obviously), and my Amp has dual A and B speaker outputs, so this should not be an issue. But still, I would like to understand.

    Thatís exactly it. Two separate runs each optimized for the frequency ranges. Thatís how I run my MBLís. Zero goes to tweeter/mid. Bass goes to bass.

    And if youíre amp only has one set of terminals, you can get them in a 2 to 4 configuration. We have those in the store too.

    Iím running four amps, so two separate runs are fine for me.

    ‘Thanks! My integrated amp had dual speaker binding posts. A and B. You should be familiar with T+A PA 3100 HV.

    Very interesting design from Audioquest though. Makes it a customized solution for bass / mid-highs, with different wire, albeit doubling the cost.

    Do you know if there is a big difference between William Tell and Thunderbird? As far as I can tell, the only difference is in gauge

    William Tel is a great value. I tried it, but went for Thunderbird myself. Seemed smoother and more complete.
