Biamping my speakers, would this way be OK?

    Moving to a very small apartment, I am forced to give up my SVS. I was thinking, I have a pair of Klipsch KLF-20's that I might bi-amp. Here is my idea. I will use the receiver to power the highs and mids, but use my 2 marantz monoblocks to power the low end. To do this, I will run a y connector to split the LFE pre-out to go into each amp and then run cable from each amp to the speakers woofers via the unbridged binding posts. Just wondering, is this a good idea? How should I configure the bass management on the receiver?
    Thanks,
    Marc

    No, the marantz monoblocks will power the woofers.

    I would try setting sub to NO or OFF and mains to LARGE and then try 'biamping' this way. The gains for the amps need to be relatively close, otherwise the sound will be disjointed.
