    The Audax system is a 2 way - right?
    If so, Bi-Amping should be reasonably straight forward to achieve.
    You first need to know:
    1. What xover frequency is the system using?
    2. What xover slope?
    You should replace these with an active xover at the same frequency (Each speaker may be different!) with the same slope or higher. I would suggest a Linkwitz Riley 4th order would be appropriate. Then, remove the passive xovers from the speaker boxes + run the speakers direct to the amp.
    The only tricky bit is getting the xover frequency right. If you make/purchase an active xover with a variable frequency this will allow for a little more control. Note that you'll need 5 channels of equalization and 10 amps for a HT system (This is what I am building [​IMG]
