  1. Explaining bi-wire / bi-amp speakers (idiot’s guide please!)

    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...
  2. DIY Bi-Amp setup for front 3 channels

    DIY Audio
    I am going to give building an amp a try now. I just ordered a Bang & Olufsen ICEpower 50ASX2 SE 2x50W Class D Amplifier, and a B&O ICEpower 125ASX2 amplifier module. This will give me enough power to power 2 of my new speakers (bi-amped). Iam still looking for one more of each to finish off the...

    Hi-long time lurker, first post. I have a Denon X4000 with Audyssey Platinum (what ever that is). Additionally, I have JBL Cinema speakers actively bi-amped using the Crown Dsi amps. These amps have presets for my specific LCR speakers (4622). Since the amps are determining the x-over and...

    I am wondering what type of benefit if any bi-amping will give me. When I talked to the QSC rep. he highly recommended it for various reasons. Here is some background. The speakers I own are QSC 2150 I'll post some specs later. They have an option when wiring your speakers to select either...

  8. Receivers that can run bi-amp front mains AND front heights?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Also, I'm curious about if there are any receivers out there that will allow me to bi-amp my front speakers and still give me the capability of having front heights? Maybe a 9.1 receiver that will then be running as a 7.1? I know there are receivers out there that will run a 7.1 setup while...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I have an Onkyo 818 running 5.1 with two unused channels. Do you think it's worth bi amping my 685 speakers (mains) or keep it set up just running it normally? Sent from my iPhone using HTShack

  11. If I have bi-amp on a receiver do I need anything else?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-TX-SR607-7-2-Channel-Surround-Receiver/dp/B001VEI2KO I saw this on CL for $200. It shows "bi-amp," on the back of it. I have Polk Tsi300 speakers. It has the bi-amp posts (or at least two sets of posts). If I get this receiver, do I need to do anything else to...

    System Setup and Connection
    Finished installing new Marantz SR6006 last night and ran first calibration. WOW what a change from the Pioneer VSX 1019 I have been using for the last 4 years. Even picture quality from blue ray is improved. Very happy I plan on running new speaker wires today going from 16awg to 12 I...
  14. Bypass passive 3 way crossover to bi-amp with active crossover

    DIY Speakers
    Hello All, I'm looking for advice as to how I should bi-amp my 3 way towers. I have had them bi-amped for a while now using an active crossover/processor (DCX2496). They sound pretty good, but I think they'd sound better if I removed the passive crossover network from inside the speaker...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hello everyone, I'm a first time HiFi owner with a pair of 683s and a Rotel RSX 1550. The purpose of this thread is to find out how to better maximize my use of that system without purchasing more stuff. I worry my 683s (200w peak) aren't performing at their best with only 100Wpc driving them...
  16. Bi-amp wiring?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    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...
  17. 7 channels or 5 channels w/ Bi-amp fronts

    System Setup and Connection
    The title says it all. At this point, I'm not using two of my 7 channels on my receiver. What is your preference and why. My co-worker said adding more speakers would be his vote. He said it would help create a more encompassing sound stage. I can't say I disagree, but I like the idea of...
  18. Possible bi-amp work around?

    System Setup and Connection
    So I have a HK AVR347, which allows for using surround back for bi-amping. However, it requires that the signal be input via analog. My only known option is to use the audio output on the tv to an input on the receiver. This is an issue because the audio isn't in sync anymore. An idea suddenly...

    Home Audio Speakers
    I just purchased the Bowers and Wilkins CM7s, CM Center and the CM1s for the rear, in the manual it says you can Bi-Wire them but says nothing about Bi-Amping, I have the Onkyo TX-SR606 and you can use the surround rear channel for Bi-Amping the front left and right.
