Going to trade out/test my Klipsch THX Ultra2 system with an M&K S5000THX sytem, curious to see how the two compare.

For the front speakers, I'm running a Cinepro 3K6SE Gold biamping the Klipsch 650's with the amp rated at 425W/Ch @ 8ohms. Since I can't biamp the S5000's, I'm looking for input on configuring the amp for the M&K's. I can run it single channel (rated at 750W/Ch @ 4 ohms) or bridge the 6 channels yielding 3 channels at 1200W/Ch @ 8ohms, 1400W/Ch @ 4ohms.

Is bridging overkill for the S5000's? Should I simply run the Cinepro amp in it's standard configuration and use two of the unused 3 channels for surround (a pair of MPS2525's) or???

Looking forward to your opinions and comments!
