You have some good junk, especially on the video side.

What is "bi-wired, bi-amped" on the same speakers?
I used to bi amp my outdoor speakers, but with the addition of the 600-2, just use the voltage/current outputs now for the highs and lows on the speakers.

In the bar, I do use the same 4 strand speaker wire, but my speakers are not the "bi" type there so I just combine the wires. Down there I have the 400-5 and 3 un-used channels are going to waste.
Any advice?

hey thanks for the welcome,

not sure you can do much more than combine wires....in my set up the bi-amp is a function of the two TFM15-CBs that had a bi amp feature, the bi wiring is a function of the Mirage speakers that have 4 posts....the Mirage speakers offered an option of either bi amping or bi wiring...

at the time I set this up I considered using the amps each as a mono block...but for whatever reason went the bi amp route

if I recall someone at Carver recommended bi amping v mono blocks....

hope this makes some sense....
