I wondered if anyone could tell me if Mordaunt Short Avant 902i would sound a lot different if they were biwired to an Onkyo TX-SR605, rather than using 2 wire speaker cable? I am a bit surprised at how these speakers sound through my old Sansui AUX 201 amp at the moment. They sound rather muffled, compared with my Jamo compact 700, and I am hoping this is either: the speakers showing up my old amp or where the speakers need a good run in. I may buy an Onkyo TX-SR605 or the Dennon AVR 1908 this week, and I will hopefully biwire these speakers if possible to improve the stereo performance. I will also try to give these speakers test on my brothers more modern Sony amp tomorrow, which will also give the speakers a run in at a slightly higher volume than I am able to go for at my house until I rearrange my speaker layout. Thanks in advance for any advice Peter

I bi wired a similar speaker - my avant 905i center - and it gave the sound more depth with the added bass. Its better for action scenes in those types of films.

Thanks for the reply

I found out what the problem was with my speakers. I had taken off the little bits of metal in the back of the speakers, that I thought were just in place for when the speakers are in transit. What I had done was set the speakers for biwiring, so that I was only hearing the low frequencies!!

The speakers sound great now, even on my old amp. So another lesson learned...
