This is my first thread after reading a massive amount of useful information from this forum. It has been very appreciated.
I have owned Polk since 1990 starting with the SDA CRS+ as monitors for recording purposes. I now have 3 sets and several years ago finally got a pair of SDS SRS's. They were not the 1.2T model as I believed but paid $2,000 plus shipping to Northeastern CA. They are in near mint condition and are stunning in their abilities.
I am interested in converting still to 1.2T specs but realize the lack of availability of components. I will follow other threads for this information. I seek to buy a good pair of the 1.2T's instead when I can locate them. I would enjoy comparing the differences.
This initial thread however is to ask if anyone is familiar with the difference in using several amps(McIntosh MC300's) in a bridged mode(600 watts) or in bi-amping. I can certainly try it myself but am ignorant in the amps groundings. I am assuming common ground and I can call McIntosh. I have read about a transformer in the inter-connects but have no knowledge.
I have tried using several different amps(Carver TFM-45 with my MC300) in a Bi-amplified configuration and was not impressed.
I know they were different amps but I have not received the second MC300 yet and have several more hours to bid on one.
I do know that both amps either driving the low or high network did not seem to have the punch of a single 300 watt per channel Mcintosh. So I am considering another like McIntosh in a bridged mode.
Forgive the long message but I also learned through this very valuable forum why one speaker's tweeters cut out at only about 250 watts. The polyswitch! I will call Polk tomorrow and order these and may even try to bypass this evening.
Thanks for any information supplied and for all I have learned so far from you folks.
