    OK Folks- Big decision to make here on Bi-Amping my front stage L/C/R with a separate Amp.... which Direction do I go in... Signal Processing is coming from a MARANTZ 8015 Receiver powering all other channels including front wide, side, back and 4 height. THANKS for the help!
  2. 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...

    Hello, I am new to this forum . I've been a regular visitor and you all give such great support! so being a total hi-fi beginner, i am going to delve into a newbie question. I'm about to buy a pair of used wharfedale Diamond 220. The speakers support bi-amping. My friend will give me 2 Chinese...

    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...
  13. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    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...
  15. Speakers
    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...
  16. Speakers
    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...
