I have Rti10 mains and a Csi5 center and am running an SC-05 receiver (130w/ch). My question is three-fold.
1.) If I get an external multi-channel amp, can I bi-amp using the 130w of the SC-05 to run the lows and use the external amp to run the highs (SC-05 manual suggests pre-amps and internal amp can be used simultaneously) and it looks as though passive crossovers are built into the speakers.
2.) The Rti10's are rated 300w/ch rms and the csi5 200w/ch rms. Am I to understand that they are considering each input terminal as a channel (i.e. 600w and 400w per speaker)?
3.) If I shoot for something in the neighborhood of 100w/ch in an external 3 channel amp, will it likely make a big difference?
