If I bi-amp my 2 Parasound HCA-855 to my mains and leave my center chan alone(not bi-ampable) will this screw up my front soundstage...or is it better to have all the same power to the three front speakers.

Joel,

This is normally not a problem; especially when biampable towers are usually set to Large and the non-biampable center set to Small. So above say, 100hz, all 3 speakers have one amp channel and approx the same power.

Since you have two 885s, use two channels from Amp1 for your left main, and two channels from Amp2 for the right main. That way, in 2 channel you have two benefits: 1) no crosstalk (leakage from right main into left, and vice versa), and 2) full reserves from both amps (from 6 open amp channels).
