If I have a 100 W amp and two 400 W speakers and I bi-wired them to the amp, but forgot to remove the metal bridge, will my speakers be ruined??

I don't know much about this kind of thing...

i doubt it, as long as you are bi-wiring using the same taps on your amp.

same taps?
is that the same places where the wires are connected?
because I used seperate ones for each set of wire

you didn't need to post a new thread. Try to stick to one thread per issue.

And you speakers are fine. Ether your amp doesn't have enough power or it isn't working properly.

Lessee... A newbie who proclaims total ignorance of the subject, yet somehow seems to be familiar with biwiring?

You're not really to get help with a problem, are you?

I doesn't matter if the jumpers are left in. The two '+' wires are connected together at the receiver end. Having the + jumper still installed will appear as a single wire between the receiver and speaker, The same with the '-' side. Removing the bi-wire jumper just seperates the high-pass xover components from the low-pass xover components.
