Benefits of Bi Wiring
Bi wiring involves using two separate speaker cables so as to connect one pair of speakers to the amplifier. The key bi wiring benefit is that it amplifies the speakers using two distinct amplifiers without placing the additional complexity and cost of having two amplifiers. Further below are the advantages of bi wiring.
1. Improves bass definition
Through enabling the bass in a loudspeaker to start drawing current on a single independent cable, bi wiring helps enhance bass definition. Bass signals normally ask more in context of what an amplifier can produce, than treble and midrange frequencies. Bi wiring helps to enhance bass clarity and thus increases overall sound clearness.
2. Enhances gauge
Bi wiring requires running two distinct wire sets to a single speaker and this doubles the overall wire gauge. This action reduces the resistance that the amplifier signals will experience to the speaker. Similar to using larger hoses so as to pass lots of water, reducing resistance helps to enhance the general clarity.
3. Reduces intermodulation
Intermodulation usually occurs when the bass interferes with the other signals. This action can be lessened or eliminated by bi wiring the speakers. This is done by using a single cable set only for bass, whereas the other cable is fully devoted to treble and midrange. The stronger bass signals will no longer interrupt the treble and midrange signals.
4. Boosts midrange clarity
Bi wiring takes out the bass signals from midrange networks, thus providing a cleaner midrange definition. This effect normally increases with an increase in volume. Manufacturers who produce bi wiring speaker wires usually use a distinct gauge for high frequencies and midrange because of this effect.
The only bi wiring limitation is that some people do not really hear the difference once they have bi-wired their speakers and thus resort to the traditional wiring method.
