    Can I expect a noticeable difference in the sound

    of my Klipsch RF3s if I bi-wire them?

    Don't "expect" any differences. Just do it and listen for yourself. If you "expect" a noticeable difference, lo and behold you likely will hear one. Sight biases are the cable industry's best friend.

    No. If you'll listen for change in sound, then you might hear a bit of difference.
    It is my opinion Bi-Wiring is a scam propagated by cable companies.
    I wouldn't worry about it and just enjoy your music/movies.

    Better yet have a friend come over and do a blind test with him/her changing the wiring without telling you when the speakers are bi-wired and when they're not. Most people stick with jumpers for bi-wire capable speakers for a reason.

    You may also encounter some mention of bi-amping. As with all things, the only way to judge for yourself is to test the application on your set up.
