I would just bi-wire them using four pairs of 12 gauge wire.


They do not draw enough current for bi-amping to be of any benefit.


One good stereo amplifier is better, for the same money, as the two amplifiers you could buy for the price.

I would be sure to take a look at the manual. The second woofer voice coil is not really intended to operate the full range of the other voice coil. I don't think you necessarily need to use the Gallo amp but you would want something with an input level control to match the levels and also a crossover at 80 hz. I believe the Gallo amp has these functions. You should also be able to use the sub outs of a home theater receiver to do the job. Another way to go would be if you could find an old, used Richter scale cross-over EQ and this would also give the benefit of EQ. Ideally you would want a receiver with XT32 as it has functionality for two subwoofers. I run mine with a tube amp and crossed over at 80 hz so I would not be using the second woofer coil in any event. The primary woofer coil has response up to around 500 hz and I think this really helps the tone of the bass as opposed to the Stradas.


Just my two cents and I would definitely check the manual and/or contact Gallo through their facebook page. They seem very nice there.
