I was wondering if an Emotiva XPA-200 would be better for my Rti10’s. I am currently running my Onkyo TX-NR709 bi-amped to them. Now, 110w+110w=220w and that would be better than the 150w of the Emotiva, but I get the feeling that calculation is based upon “stupid math” and not all needed variables for real world results lol. Someone break it down for me, if possible, how the Emotiva is (likely) better than my Onkyo bi-amped. I’m sure impedance comes into play somehow (?) Thank you!
Also, I plan to someday upgrade to a pair of Lsi25's or Lsi15's. I know the receiver is 4ohm capable, and I... BELIEVE... it is capable of bi-amping in 4ohm? And I'm guessing that the 15's would be bi-ampable, but not the 25's. With that in mind, would it be better to get the 15's, bi-amp, and get 1/2 good quality sub(s)? I listen to a LOT of music, but also watch a LOT of movies, so I guess 50/50. I know music tends to favor towers with full range vs towers + seperate sub. Price entirely aside between the 25's & 15's.
