I know there is a lot of debate on bi-amping, most of it seems to be against it but I don't want this to be a bi-amping discussion thread.


I have the Denon AVR-X2000 which is a 7.1 channel AVR. I will never use the 7 channels and since the receiver has the ability to bi-amp the fronts when using 5.1 I thought I might.


The speakers (Polk RT 16) are older but in good condition, I will have the speakers and receiver in the same room for the first time tonight.


So is there any reason not to bi-amp? It will basically mean I will use an additional four pairs of banana plugs and a little more wire. Is there any reason other than the additional materials not to do it? Could it make it sound worse, damage the receiver or the speakers?


I appreciate you taking the time to read this and I did search the forum before asking. Just seemed like all the threads I saw were talking about not being able to hear a difference.

Sometimes when you engage the 2 unused channels to bi amp

You will see a power drop to all channels.

You are still using the same power supply but now 7 channels

Vs 5 channels.
