Hey guys, great forum you have here. Here's a breif history of my audio habit. Always loved music and because I dont play any instruments I fell in love with good stereo equipment. My systems grew in complexity and power over the years. In the early 90's I bought an Adcom system. It was the best stuff the local stereo shop sold. Along with some Paradigm towers this system served me well. Marriage, family, and a strong powerboating habit stalled the audio habit right there.
When I built a new house I had to give up the Paradigm towers so I did the HT thing. I prewired for ceiling speakers and installed Sonance D series for the front and rear and bought the Adcom GSP 560 to make my 2 channel system into pro logic. Even with a Paradigm center and sub this really didnt do it for me. I still longed for my old 2 channel sound. Recently I bought a Yamaha 5790 to handle the HT duties so my Adcom stuff has been idle.
Ive decided to resurect my 2 channel system with a pair of Polk Rti12's. I know there are better speakers but this is what I wanted to try. I was impressed by some older Polk towers years ago and I wanted some large speakers that can be driven loud.
My Adcom Componets are as follows:
ACE 515 AC Enhancer
GCD-600 CD Player
GFA-545II Amp 100 wpc
GFA-1A Amp 200wpc
Now Im sure the RTi12's can be pushed by either of these amps but my question is should I bi-amp them with what I have now?
Im looking at buying another GFA-1A also so I guess it would be better to bi-amp with identical amps.
Also whats the general consensous on passive bi-amping around here?
If I wanted to go the active route can anyone guide me in bypassing the speakers crossover and which active crossover to get?
Its been a while.... This is great!
