Can you bi-wire regular speakers and would there be any advantage. Like run two speaker wires to each speaker.

I dont think this would provide any real benefit. All the bi-wiring would do is reduce the resistance from amp to speaker, which is not really significant as long as the cables are of suitable gauge.

Provided your speaker has dual binding post for low and high frequency bi-wiring em` to your amp can mean an audible difference to the sound you hear.Reducing the resistance in itself is a marked improvement however all these things would depend on your hearing faculties.
Best way to find out of course if you try it I say!

Good Luck

If you have a speaker with a bi-wireable terminal facility, it's there for a reason. Dont "double-up" cables unless you have FOUR connectors on the back of the speaker.
People who state bi-wiring doesn't "do anything" or "it's too expensive" or drag up that stupid "resistance increases" babble or state their grandpa didn't bi-wire his Model T haven't tried bi-wiring a good speaker with good cables

chicobiker is right on there if your speakers are
biwireable by all means do it.

but if they have single conections don't.

if the speakers are biwireable i usually try to
pick up a second amp and biamp them.
