    Home Audio Speakers
    If a speaker has four binding posts for two times the (usual) number of speaker cables, then what does removing the binding posts (linking the two pairs) actually do? I am not clear if this by-passes the high/ low passive filter in the speaker or not. If it does not do that, I cannot see how...
