Mfr's don't recommend connecting the speaker posts of the AVR and the pre-outs to an external amp to the same speaker.Second post here, great forum
I just picked up a mint set of Infinity Kappa 7.1 speakers and want to use them in a HT setup as well as 2 channel. Apparently these require good power and are biampable. So I was thinking of using the front speaker outs on my receiver for the treble and the pre outs on receiver to a power amp for the woofer..
My receiver is 120 watts/channel and the power amp is an older Kenwood basic m1d at 125. It has volume control
Is this doable out of the pre out and would it be better than using the receiver by itself?
Appreciate the input guys, thanks
Kind of disappointing that pre outs are not recommended 4 bi amp, I'm curious why? I will try my Kenwood and see how it sounds, may have to spring for a bigger amp.
Also, just checked my AVR manual and apparently has a biamp setting using the front speaker outputs as well as the surround back. Since my system is only 5.1 I may try this but was wondering if this would be preferable to just using the Kenwood out of the pre outs.
One more question, I also have in Adcom 535 power amp and was considering using Y splitters out of the pre outs with the Kenwood for biamp amp. Would that be something that could work? I'm thinking probably not
