This is my first post on Polk Audio but I have been reading threads for almost a year (that is how long I have had Polk products). I have searched the archives but can't seem to find information about bi amping the CS2 - it does not have a bi amp style post.
So here is the situation, I have a BB1265 amplifier that is a class A/B amplifier with 12 channels by 65 watts or 6 channels by 130 watts. I am using this amplifier to power my home theater system. By this I mean my two Monitor 70s and my CS2 center channel. I have removed the binding post jumper plates on my monitor 70's and I am sending a bridged channel to each post. So I have 130 watts to the lower post (sub/mids) of the monitor 70's and 130 watts to the upper post (tweet) of the monitor 70's (I am using an RCA splitter to send two signals to the left tower and two signals to the right tower).
My problem is that the CS2 only has a single set of post, and right now, my Monitor 70's are totally over powering the center channel and things sound odd. Here is the deal, with the monitor 70's bi amped I have heard things I have never heard before. I listen to music and watch movies and I am like "wow, I never heard that before".....I love this and the amount of new sound I have.
So, how can I make the CS2 compete with bi amped monitor 70's? Can I just take the monitor 40 rear post and replace the CS2 with it? Is the wiring and the crossovers the same on a monitor 40 and the CS2?
Here is a rear pic of the monitor 40 (notice the two post):
I have an extra monitor 40 that I can take appart.
All thoughts, suggestions, advice is greatly appreciated.
P.S. I have monitor 70's series one towers, monitor 40 surrounds, CS2 for a center, and a PSW12 for a subwoofer.
