Technics And Bi-wireing
Hi, my technical knowledge is little so please forgive if I seem to be asking for help when the answers are obvious, or if I have posted to the wrong forum.
I am hoping some one can help with a problem I currently am facing.
Existing Technics SUVX500 amplifier is intermittently failing, after 19 years of faultless service the voltage control light goes off and the sound goes off with it.
I also have a Technics SU-V4X which is working fine.
The existing Technics SUVX500 is bi-wired to a pair of Tannoy 607 speakers, using the bi-wire position on the speaker selector switch. (Speaker selector switch has “A; B; Off & bi-wire positions)
I want to bi-wire the SU-4VX to the Tannoys using both sets of speaker terminals. This amp' has push button speaker selector switches marked "Main and Remote", no mention of bi-wire.
Both amplifiers have two sets of speaker outputs.
The questions are:
Su VX500 SU V4X
A OR B, BI_WIRING 4Ω_16Ω Main OR Remote 4 Ω – 16 Ω
A AND B 8Ω_16Ω MainAND Remote 8 Ω – 16 Ω
TANNOY 607 Speakers
Nominal Impedance 8 Ohms
Minimum Impedance 6 Ohms
Sorry, if I’ve been long winded and thanks to anyone who has taken the time and trouble to read this.
You will want both the main and remote buttons pressed - this is the same as the 'bi-wire' setting on your other amp.
The amplifier will see the same overall load impedance if the speakers are biwired or single wired, i.e. it will still be nominally 8 ohms either way.
Many thanks, Ben.
You're help is greatly appreciated.
