Default bi-wiring

I don't know what bi-wiring accomplishes, if anything, but... Assumig bi-wiring is a Good Thing, and assuming you could only bi-wire on one side of the crossover, would you put two pairs of wires between the amp and the crossover, or two pairs between the crossover and the speakers? Show your work.

The way you pose the question leads me to believe that you don't know what bi-wiring is.

No, that's not what it is. I was just being stupid. I was thinking about whether to put the external crossovers close to the amp or close to the speakers.

Please forget that I said anything.

Mr. Moderator, do your duty.

Hi,
I tried taking the biwire xovers out of the speaker cabinet and locating them at the back of the amp. 4 short (120mm) wires into the xover and then 4 long (800mm) wires direct to the drivers. Alecto into AE1. There was little change to the sound that I could hear. But in the process I bypassed Acoustic E's multi insulated internal wiring.
I biwired my Tannoy Berkleys, the improvement was unbelievable, but kept the slightly modified xover inside the cabinet.

Hi, was Bill cracking a joke that went over my head? because of my poor choice of words?
If that caused confusion then I'll rephrase.
The improvement in sound quality was very much better than I had expected for a fairly simple mod done way back in the mid 80's.
Bill any response yet?
regards Andrew T.
