Question Dynaudio Contour and biwiring?

Hi all,
I beg your pardon if this question had already been discussed before.

I'm trying to understand, before opening them, if it's possible to modify the passive x-over inside my 2-way small Dynaudio 1.1, in order to biwire them.

Does anybody know if such x-over schemas are available somewhere on the web?

If possible, I would take the x-over out of the box and modify it.

Any comment/idea would be much more than welcome.

Thank you all,

Stefano

Not exactly an answer to your question and you may know it
already. There was a discussion on Audio Asylum on why
Dynaudio speakers are not designed to allow for biwiring.
Somebody had asked the manufacturer about this and their
response was that they had made extensive tests and found
that their speaker do not benefit from biwiring.

I have no link, but if you search for "Dynaudio" and "biwiring"
in the speaker forum at AA you should find this discussion.

Yes you can, the filter structure is separate for each speaker.
Better or worse you will have to decide for yourself.

The link shows you how the filter is built but the values are different.Filter

Smile Christer and A 8: Thanks a lot!

Ciao Christer and A 8,
thanks a lot for your kind answers!

My experience with a cheaper pair of Tannoy R1 made me enjoy the benefits of biwiring.

Besides Mr. Risch seems to have some theoretical evidence of it, that's why I am so interested in such a configuration.

Thanks again, I think I will try and share my findings :-)

Ciao from Italy,

Stefano
