speaker types and biwire


Are some speaker types more biwire friendly than others?
monitors vs full range? bookshelf vs floor standers?
bass reflex vs something else? single woofer vs double woofer? 2 way vs 3 way ?
I have Chord Carnival Silverscreen shotguns and have an upgrade option to Rumour biwires. I listened to the Rumours but cannot tell if the improved sound is mostly from the better cable or the extra terminals. I have 3 way floor standing dual woofer bass relex speakers. Thanks for any suggestions.

It depends on the design of the crossover and not all speakers with two sets of binding posts have crossovers designed for bi-wiring.

I'm sure a lot of what you heard was in the better speaker wire.
Between sixes and sevens here. My speakers are an obscure brand from a defunct company. Any way to tell what type of crossovers they have?

You would have to view it,trace out what components go to what driver,determine the values of the resistors,capacitors and inductors and once that is done probally feed that data into a spice or simulation software program to determine what type of crossover it is,slopes,phase and its cutoff frequencies would then be able to be determined;at least this is my guess.
Maybe Bill Legall from Millersound might be able to help you out if he is close to your location or at least give him a call for his ideas;Bill is considered one of the top speaker/crossover people in the industry.

Try using your new wire in a non-bi-wired way and you'll find out whether or not bi-wiring made a difference.

srwooten,
I guess you mean with the stock jumpers removed to see if the extra set of posts is a "dummy"?
