    Bi-Wiring Mistake - oops
    Well..............sometimes I make mistakes ;)
    I purchased these great speakers - Klipsch SF2's (they really sound nice in my opinion).....now I would've sworn that I could bi-wire them....so I ordered a Canare 4s11...

    BUT they are NOT....so now I have a Canare 4S11 cable - Bi-Wire capabl, just twisted the reds / whites together......what are your opions about this?, should I get another cable? or will this be ok?

    Thanks

    Hi Fluff,

    could you return them and get their single wire cable? You did make a mistake in buying the wrong cable. So try a return.

    good luck,

    No, he didn't!

    Hi gonefishing

    In reality, they are perfect cable for [single] run speaker connection. Using 4S11 cable in biwire configuration defeat their purpose as low noise speaker cables which 4S11 (Star Quad) are famous for. Just do a Google search on star quad cables.

    So plug it in and enjoy :)

    Thanks!
    Thank you!,

    I have indeed been doing a search on my wonderful canare 4s11 cable and on the url:
    http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/...akerprices.htm
    and
    http://www.ramelectronics.net/html/speaker-cables.html

    or ofcourse the original canare site:
    http://www.canare.com/index.cfm?obje...6C24CDB73FA68E


    They provide the cable in two setups - bi-wire and single


    Well phew :), I feel much better, I mean geeez, they do sound very good (or maybe it's just the speakers :).........so thank you for the reply, just wanted to run it across everyone.

    I use this cable in my Stage II Speaker Wire that I build. It is a great wire, enjoy
