    Is is acceptable to do passive bi-amping on brand new speakers?

    The dealer where I bought them had conflicting viewpoints on this subject. One salesperson said yes. The other, give them break in time and then bi-amp them.

    I say it should not matter. Bi-amp them.

    Any thoughts from the experts?

    Thank you,
    Charles

    takes but moments to actually break-in a speaker. takes longer for you to get used to them. if you're happy with them knock yourself out and biamp. now you can agonize over active and passive [​IMG]

    Chu,

    Interesting point. Passive or active. Passive for the moment. I did bi-amp them and you are correct, longer to get used to them. Thank you for the advise.

    takes a while to get used to a speaker...the actual physical breaking in takes but a few minutes, but we can talk about that off-line if you want.
