Powering Rti A7s
So I am looking to putting a little more power into the Rti A7 front speakers I have had for awhile now. I have seen on my forums that it would be benificial to bi-amp them. Could anyone recommend any amps for my situation? My current setup:
Fronts: Pair of Rti a7s
Sides: Pair of Tsi 200s
Backs: Pair of Fxi a6
Center: Csi a6
Subs: Pair of BIC America V-1220 12-inch 430-Watt down firing
Receiver: Denon 3313(125 Watts per channel)
Forget bi-amping. Just get a quality 3-channel amp for your mains and center and you're good to go. If you're looking for specific recommendations, what's your budget?
Your subwoofers are doing all the heavy lifting power wise, I see no reason to even add an amp untill you move up to harder to drive speakers. Sure, some benefits will be had by adding an amp, but may not be the bang you had in mind.
+1 Get a 3-5 channel amp of at least 200wpc @ 8ohms sit back and enjoy. This will allow your speakers to operate to their full potential as well as enough power to manage just about any speakers you might get in the future.

I personally noticed absolutely no audible difference at any volume level. One amp channel per spx connected with one 12 AWG wire is good for me. I cannot speak for active bi-amping.
