    Hey gang! Currently I have one channel of my AMC 2N100-5 (150x5) amp running my Energy AC-300 center channel. I'm thinking of getting two monoblock amps "AMC 2100 in bridged mode (250 watts)" to bi-amp the center channel. What do you folks think I'll expect to hear/notice? Thanks!

    Hard to say – you’ll just have to try it and see. Some people say their speakers sound better b-amped, others say they can’t tell a difference.

    Bridging two mono amps seems a strange way to do this, though: If your current amp sends 150 watts to your other speakers, why do you want to send 250 watts to one driver of your center channel?

    I'm just thinking about bi-amping the center since it does most of the HT duties that's all....Thanks! I know I'll just have to try and see...
