i'm getting the bi-amping itch and had a couple questions before i began:
- When using the passive crossover with my MMC6500's, my amp "sees" a 4 ohm nominal impedance on each crossover-tweet-mid set. If I were to bi-amp the the tweets and mids what are the individual speaker impedances? These individual speaker impedances are not in the Momo manual nor online, tho I'd assume Polk was smart enough to make them 4 ohms each as well. Just curious so I set up my amp properly.
- The passive crossovers are "bi-ampable" themselves, with both tweeter and woofer input connections. What's the benefit of running wire directly between the speakers and the amp (channels 1&2 to tweeters, channels 3&4 to woofers) or running all four channels to the crossovers (1&3 to crossover 1, 2&4 to crossover 2)? When both tweeter and woofer input connections and the input switch is flipped to "dual" are made does it bypass the crossover network entirely?
I realize the MMC6500 passive crossovers have speaker protection circuits and not using them voids the warranty, but I'm asking these questions from an SQ perspective. Life would be so much easier if I bought the C400.4 in the first place!
