I know most receivers do Bi-Amping but when everyone talks about it they always talk about Bi-amping the fronts. In a 5.1 system can't you Bi-amp the surrounds and if you can do you thinks it would help bring out the surrounds noises with better clarity?

I wouldn't bother trying to biamp the rears unless you listen to mostly 5 channel SACD or DV-A music. But if you have the amps sitting around with unused channels, go fer it.

I wouldn't bother trying to bi-amp any channels...

If you're having issues, they may be more placement and calibration related rather than a situation of insufficient power.

With a common power supply and reasonable damping factor there won't be a change in headroom.


With separate amplifiers and competant design, there won't be a difference in distortion when you keep the amplifier out of clipping and you're only going to pickup a dB of headroom which isn't significant.

But the center is really the one that needs all the headroom it can get with 5.1 content.

Active bi-amplification using a line-level cross-over substantially increases headroom but isn't what most people do when they bi-amplify.
