Listen to Knucklehead! (I've never been able to call someone a knucklehead on a forum without them taking offense until now
To go back to the quote above... "to do this correctly" for any speaker would require gutting some/all of the passive crossover inside the speaker itself and insert an active crossover into the signal chain.
I biamp. It's a 2-channel system but that part is irrelevant.
My signal chain is various sources into a preamp. Leave the preamp into an active crossover which takes (for example) my left signal inside it and splits the signal into two different output signals. Each output signal is then connected to the input of a 2-channel power amp.
Output signal "1" is connected to "left" input and is for the low frequencies. Output signal "2" is connected to "right" input and is for the high frequencies.
My active crossover has any equalization and signal delay programmed into it.
The power amp is then connected to the speaker. "left" output to the woofer and the "right" output to the tweeter. (I'm using a 2-way speaker)
If you are going to biamp a 2-way speaker, that is the traditional (and in my opinion, 'correct') way of doing it. If you have a 3-way speaker you now have an issue of using a passive between the midrange/tweeter or going to a different active crossover and yet another amplifier in the food chain.
I'd personally look into the passive between the midrange/tweeter since for me, a true active 3-way starts to use a lot of plugs & amps.
Doesn't matter in my case since my speakers are only 2-way
All of that to be a knucklehead myself and say, simply enjoy your system as it is
