Hello, all! I have what I hope is an interesting question regarding the subject of bi-amping my new Monitor 70 II speakers. I am curious what the internal crossover specs are since I might be experimenting with external crossover components as I integrate these speakers with the subwoofer in my system. My thought is that I might experiment with applying a low-pass filter before sending the signal on to the amps for the woofers. I might even do the same, except in reverse with a high-pass filter, to the mid-range/tweeters. I wonder if doing so might take some unnecessary load off of the equipment or will this make any difference at all? That aside, I'm sure the crossover information might come in handy for any other adventurous audiophiles out there who might consider doing something similar.
Other than that, any information concerning bi-amping would be helpful and appreciated. I am planning on using two Carver TFM-15cb amps (rated at 100w/ch) in conjunction with a Velodyne SMS-1 sub management unit. Also, I would like to attempt to not cut off the M70s from the low frequencies as much as possible. I don't know; should I feel bad cutting them off at 80Hz or should I try to just remove the frequencies below something nearer to their -3 db point or even not at all?
Thanks in advance fellow Polk-a-philes!
