  1. Bi-Amping speakers

    DIY Speakers
    Hi, I have a pair of custom made L/R Front speakers, At the moment it only has a single set of speaker terminals, The crossover looks quite complex, so I am asuming they can be converted to 2 pairs of speaker terminal so I can use a seperate amp for the high/mids and another amp for the...
  2. Bi-Amping questions

    Home Audio Speakers
    My Pioneer Elite vsx-30 allows for bi-amping using the front and surround back speaker terminals. Questions assuming that I have bi-ampable speakers. 1. Will the AVR actually be able to deliver more power to the speakers. 2. Does dividing the speaker into High and low parts by removing the...
  3. Active crossover recommendations for bi-amping Infinity Kappa 7.1 with a Marantz AV8003/MM8003

    Home Audio Speakers
    I have recently updated my family room A/V system with several objectives (which I met). In the process I have gone from driving my Infinity Kappa 7.1 from Bi-wired from an Adcom GFA-5800 to Bi-amped from a Marantz MM8003. While I am quite happy with the update in most all respects, it seems to...

    System Setup and Connection
    Just set up my new Onkyo 707 & Polk Monitor 70s in a 7.1 system. Been searching some of the thoughts on bi-amping and I'm curious. I would think running twice as much power to the speakers would have to make them sound even better, though running audyssey would just turn their volume down to...

    Hi, I am in the process of understanding bi-amping and need some help. I have bi-amplable Polk RTIa9's. I was considering buying an Emotiva XPA-5 amp and using it to bi-amp the Polks. Is it possible to run two channels to the Polk front right and another two channels to the Polk front left...
  7. Crossover recommendations for Bi-amping

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hello, Just wondering what is out there for home theater crossovers/processors. The Behringer DCX-2496 is probably what I am looking for, but I am just curious to know what else is on the market. The DBX Driveracks are also very capable but a little on the pricey side. I have my front left...

    Still searching for a AVR. I was looking at the Onkyo 606, 706 ,or the 806 AVR's, and noticed this on the 606 * below. On the rear of the AVR they have the right/left FRONTS, and right/left SURROUND inputs, a center, a sub and right/left Surround back speakers for BI-Amp for front speakers...
  9. Bi-amping question, thoughts needed.

    Home Audio Speakers
    I currently have an Onkyo 875 and I'm running with a pair of Monitor Audio R270's up front. Later this year I want to upgrade the front 2, switch the MA's to the rear and get a proper pair of floorstanders for the front. My aim is to maximize music performance as I'm a 50/50 music HT person. I'm...
