Passive bi-amping does not benefit int he manner you describe. Actually, I venture a guess that most people buying the XPR-5 are simply using it to power five speakers.
Your not reading carefully.
I suggested the bi-amp option for use with the Outlaw 7700.
The speakers have a crossover.
The high frequency driver do not put a load to consume the same power as the low frequencies.
You want to disagree, fine.
The points I am making are simple straight forward.
The 7700 is a seven channel amp which within its limits performs are 7 individual amps.
Now imagine the Front two channels are instead 4 speakers.
They will no longer interfere any more than clipping the fronts would clip the back.
This is a trivial concept. I am explaining here.
While others, are telling me I am wrong because of amps I not discussing and AVRs I am not discussing.
Let's just end this.
