L600 “height input only”

I just purchased a pair of L600. On the back there are 6 total binding posts. I understand that the 4 grouped together are for bi-wiring or bi-amping. But the top 2 have a sign that says: “height input only.” What does that mean? There is nothing in the owner’s guide to explain it.

    For atmos surround sound. Instead of hanging speakers on the wall/ceiling they are on top of the 600's. Many speaker manufacturers use the same principal.

    The height modules are called L900 and are an extra cost option for the L600 and L800 floor stander speakers...

  • That makes sense. So if I’m not going to bi-wire or bi-amp, which of the 4 should I connect to?

    All four lower binding posts are used for biwire or biamp. Remove the straps connecting the pairs of binding posts if using both lower sets.
