Chalk it to semantics. There are 2 plates per bi-wiring speaker (joining 2 terminals). You can bank on it for interest, or sit by the river pondering.

Acknowledged but a plate is simply a connection between Hi and Low. There's no bi about it as wire connections are not bi-wiring...... end of.

Enough, my comment of bi-plating began as lighthearted as I end this exchange with you. Readers can decide for themselves how it comes across.

Semantics doesn't enter into it, suggest you look at the definition of bi-wiring.

Plate or jumper cable. Either way it’s just a way of bypassing the bi-wire system so only one cable runs to the amp. It’s only bi-wired if there is a separate cable for LF and HF that either join together amp end or to do it properly a designated channel for each. Either way results are debatable

Can’t afford the 7K jumpers mentioned before so have supply’s in the post to build my own

Any old wire or the metal links will do as good a job. This thread is nonsense.
