I am an average Joe with a limited knowledge when it comes to audio equipment..... and a budget to match... I was thinking of a situation, but as I read further and gather more information, I think i grasp the idea behind Bi-amping, as I read in the primer (which I am still rooting around in) and another thread. Two sepereate signals HF and LF to the same speaker (that can support bi-amping) and not running one signal into another amp and splitting it off from there. (which is what I thought bi-amping was at first) I am putting this to a new thread so as to avoid hijacking another thread. ---------------------- Scenario: I have my old HTiB sitting idle in another room and it drives me crazy... (its not really that good but it did serve its purpose in the past) Question: Would it be advantageous to take that second system and use it for the sole purpose of surround signal? I don't want to overload the surround channels by adding more speakers but I would like to increase the amount of speakers to the rear of the room. Splitting the signal from the DVD into to separate amps and leave the primary amp as it is. take the secondary amp turn off the front channel and run just the rear channel and passive 10" sub Or Splitting the rear signal off as it exits the primary amp and run one lead to the speakers and another to the second amp? then go from there.... Is this just plain overkill or is it worth the effort for the end result? someday I will upgrade but until then....
