bi-amp

  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    My goal is to have a 5.1.4 set up where the 5 main speakers are all bi-amped. An awesome member of this group named James brought to my attention that I cannot do this with my Pioneer LX-701 alone, since there are not nearly enough amplified channels. So I am now wondering if I can accomplish...

    Hi everyone, Sorry for my 1st post being a question but i suppose most of us got here like that.. I am quite new in all this audio world and i am having some trouble with my system. Long story short. Had Home theatre now have just speakers of it. It was a 5.1 system with L, R, SL, SR rated at...

    I received surround sound speakers for Christmas, and they are rated for 80w of power. Since my receiver pushes 105w per channel with 7 channels, I'm concerned about overloading these new speakers. I am toying with the idea of setting the surround speakers to the small setting and then...

    Hello everyone! Here's where I'm starting from: Pioneer VSX-LX302: 100 W per channel @ 8 Ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.08% THD, 2-channel driven, FTC 200 W per channel @ 6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 10% THD, 1-channel driven Oddly, I find discrepancies looking at this AVR at the USA site ("Elite" on the...

    Note: I had originally misinterpreted Esteban's question, which I've now cleared up with him. So, I've updated this article to reflect his real question. Q: I just got a pair of Definitive Technology BP9040 speakers , and I absolutely love them! Can they be bi-amped? I currently have them...

    Hello, I have 2 Kef Q series Q3's hooked up to an onkyo 606 in bi-amp mode. They replaced the front satellites in a hsu research 5.1 setup. They are extremely bass heavy to an annoying degree. Wondering if its smart to use these speakers in a home theatre setup? My other option is to bring...

    I am looking to Bi-Amp a pair of JBL Studio 590BK from a Pioneer Elite SC-LX801. Firstly I have never done anything like this before, I have experience in car audio, old 2.0 receiver setups and a 5.1 HT setup. I am looking to use the 590's as the front left and rights. I am looking to use a 4...

    Wondering which generation the Motiva XPA-200 with the silver corners is. Is this a good amp to bi-amp with or maybe just use as a stand alone 2 channel set-up? Also, is there a way to use a powered sub with this amp? Thanks for the feed back.

    I need some expert help/tips. Setup: Currently TX-NR3030 driving Monitor Audio Platinum PL200 and PLC300 Front, and smaller MA Gold surround speakers. I run 7.1.4 (Atmos). All is fine. BUT, I am upgrading the front to the PL500 (Monitor audio Platinum II) and the PLC350 center... and still want...

    Hi. I have a Denon AVR-X1000 Receiver, which is 5.1 channel, and would like to use it for a 2.1 setup. Therefore I was hoping to use a bi-amp setup, but all my searches tells me that the X1000 cannot bi-amp. However, all of that was when using 5.1, not 2.1. The manual says nothing about it...

    I am thinking about creating a home theater system, but do not want to sacrifice much in my stereo performance. I don't have the budget or space, though, for two separate systems. I cannot see any point in having two components with lots of overlap in their capability. I am therefore thinking...

    Hi, I got an AIWA CX-NAJ50 mini-system that is bi-amp. However the speakers I got have only a one way cable. Can I split the cable and connect the same cable to both outputs? (I know that would defeat the purpose of having two separate amplifiers. These AIWA SX-NA34 speakers are hard to open...

    Great amp, great speakers but music off CDs lacks depth. Is that because the speakers are bi-amped but are playing in stereo? This is for me to understand the principles: I recently picked up a really nice Pioneer SC-LX83 hometheatre amp and also a pair of Monitor Audio MR6 floor standing...

    Apologies for what should be a pretty basic question, but I haven't been able to find an answer by searching myself. I've got a setup where bi-amplification is possible, so I thought I'd give it a try as I was re-wiring the system in a new room (older Klipsch setup, F2, C2, S2 speakers and a...

    Hi guys, I`m new here just to let you know a little bit about me. I`m an avionics tech with what I would like to consider a fairly decent understanding of electrical systems. I have read multiple threads on this Bi-amping, but they are mostly filled with trolls or quick short answers. But what...

    Hi Everyone, Brand new to here and excited to join and learn! I upgraded my Pioneer Elite VSX-84txsi to an SC-85 yesterday (still not sure how much sound improvement there is yet, different post coming) that I use for my HT and TV viewing. I also have a Technics SU-V7X I use for my turntable...

    Selling my first set of monitor audio speakers I ever got. I got these about a year ago and have used them in my office with my cd transport and dac. These speakers can be bi-wired and bi-amped, and are a wonderful set of speakers, specially for a bedroom or computer room. They are in black oak...

    I'm a rookie here who needs some help. I have the Polk TSx550t as well as an Onkyo TX-NR818. Both have the capability to bi-amp but is there really any advantage? Onkyo says that the NR818 can drive all channels at 135W (8 ohms) while the 550t is supposed to be able to handle up to 300W...
