Using my Denon DRA-37, Parasound HCA-800II and Monitor 70 speakers - If I were to use the Denon receiver (50w) to drive the tweeters and the Parasound (100w) to drive the mid/low drivers - what would be the best way to balance the outputs of the two amps? I have a SPL meter as well as a DMM. I'm leaving the passive crossovers in place. Would 50 watts be too much for the tweeter circuit?
I feel like experimenting (for the sake of experimentation) and any input on how to approach all of this would be greatly appreciated. My thinking is that this will probably reduce the brightness of the speakers (great potential for a muddy mess) because of the difference in gain structures... Anyway - I'm curious as to how it will turn out and what kind of an effect it will have on overall tone.
