Okay, I am thinking of getting the pioneer vsx1121k but not set in stone yet so I am referencing the info from this reciever and I am guessing it is the same with most recievers that are bi-ampable. Now with wiring up for bi-amping the speaker, polk audio monitor 40 floor standing speakers, you use the front speaker terminals and the surround back speaker terminals for the connections. You can still hook up the rear surrounds as well but this leaves the front height or front width speaker terminals emtpy. Can you still use these for the front height or front width speakers or do you just loose the use of these speaker terminals in this manner if you go with the bi-amp route. I am not looking to know if bi-amping is worth it or not just wondering if i can still use these other terminals at all. Thanks for any imput anyone can give me.
