I'm new to this forum, and after reading some of the replies on the thread I decided it may be a good idea to post my question here. I do want to say that I'm not to savvy as far as electronics are concerned.
So here is my situation. I recently upgraded to LSi15's after thinking about them for a long time (12 months to be exact). Here is my current setup
Amp: HK AVR 247, (http://manuals.harman.com/HK/Owner%2...om%20lores.pdf)
speakers: Pair of LSi15's
Sub: Cambridge P300HD
When I plugged these in, I didnt get the output that i was looking for. The manual has the following configuration for this amp:
50 Watts x 7, seven channels driven at full power at 8 ohms,
20Hz – 20kHz, <0.07% THD (surround modes), 350 watts total
• 65 Watts x 2, two channels driven at full power at 8 ohms,
20Hz – 20kHz, <0.07% THD (surround off mode), 130 watts total
While reading other posts, I discovered that I could use the multiroom/SB (Remote Speakers) option on the amp for lower frequencies for my LSi's.(i think its called bi-wiring or bi-amping) Is this a safe option, some people have suggested that if you under power your speakers you could damage them and the amp?
There also has a connection for a pre-amp at the back. While this is something I could invest in, I cant look at spending more $200 max at this point.
do you think I should power the speakers with the bi-wiring option? or is that a big no no.
