I have a Denon 2113CI sitting in a box, ready to power a new sound system. I'm about to pull the trigger on a pair of Monitor Audio Silver RX2 speakers. As most decent quality speakers do these days, they have the ability to be bi-wired.
A few questions:
A) The 2113 is 7.1 but I only plan to run 5.1. So that means I would use the "assignable" extra channel as the second input to the "main" speakers, i.e. MA Silvers. Correct?
B) I believe the 2113 is 95 watts / channel. But what happens if I bi-wire the amp to those speakers? Does that mean that there is, in fact, 95watts going to the tweeter, and 95 going to the woofer? In effect, is that a total of 190watts to the speakers??? To say that I'm not clear on this subject, is quite an understatement.
C) Would I need to custom tailor the crossovers for those two channels, to make the one going to the tweeter play the highs, while the other to the woofer plays the lows? How does this factor in if I use Audyssey to set things up? Is there going to be an issue with the bi-wiring and the automated set-up?
Thanks so much.
