Parts Express Bi-Amp Speaker Terminal Cup Gold Banana Binding Post
I have a new Yamaha 2.1 channel receiver. I am wondering if using a Bi-Amp connector in a speaker, (with only an Usher 8948A 7" inside the box and an Eminence PXB2:500 2-way speaker crossover), to wire to a 3 way bookshelf speaker all on 1 channel.
This requires a bit more information in order to proceed. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-338-0531 x1.

Is there a way/place to buy just the bridging bars? I've inherited some older speakers with this type of terminal cup and the bridging bars seem to have been torn (!!) off at some point in their history. I've bridged with speaker wire, but that's ugly.
We do have binding post jumpers available, but none that are angled to fit these cups. You may have to buy the whole cup in order to use the jumpers.

I'm designing a dual subwoofer box and want to power each sub with separate channels on the amp to keep the 8 ohm impedance on the subs. Can I use this terminal without the jumpers or will I have to purchase separate terminals?
Yep you loosen the posts and the jumpers come right out, they will work like a charm.

can i use this product if i want to hook up two amps to one speaker. i will only be using one amp at a time
this way i can switch amps with out switching speaker connects. or would some sort of a/b switch be a better choice?
I would never have any sort of physical connection between two different amplifier's outputs, there could be voltage potential between their outputs which could create noise/hum problems, damage one or both of the amps and/or cause a fire.Use banana plugs on the end of your speaker wires and run a line from each amp to the speaker. Just plug in the banana plugs from the amp you want to use, switching them only takes two seconds. Or run one line to the speakers and switch them at the amplifiers if you can get to them easily and they both have binding posts.I would not use an A/B switch unless you can make sure that it disconnects both positive and negitive wires when switching, again a source of possible problems.
