    Hi,

    What is the "correct" way to Bi-Amp??

    I have 2 P25's (1 2ch and 1 3ch) and in order to Bi-Amp my B&W CDM9NT's I've currently connected one amp to both low frequencies, and one to both high frequencies.

    Or, should I use one Amp per speaker?

    Or, should I use one Amp per low-frequency input and use my A25 (Which is currently solely used as a pre-amp) to drive both high frequencies? Would this mean the P25's are acting as a monobloc??

    Is there a recomended way? Or, is there a way that might blow everything up?!

    Thanks

    Nick

    Bi-amping in the traditional way is that u use one amplifier to drive the high frequencies at both speakers and one amplifier for the low frequencies at both speakers. The way your configuration is now is the right way.

    It's necessarily that the amplifiers are gained for this, but with two P25's this is no problem because since a couple of yrs all the Arcam amplifiers are gained for bi-amping.

    When u drive one speaker with one amplifier and the other speaker also with one amplifier then this a monobloc configuration.
