How much improvement does passive biamping give you?

    Thinking of a passive biamp setup for my center channel. Will this give any improvement for HT (voice clarity, etc.)?

    It's been my experience that passive biamping has little to no effect on the sound of the system (assuming you are using reasonably thick wire in the first place). What center are you using and how is it placed in your HT? Speaker selection, placement and room acoustics play a much larger role in sound reproduction...

    I suspect you are thinking about biwiring, whereas Joseph asked about biamping.

    Larry-

    Thats right. But I will not be using an active crossover between the preamp and amp. I will just use two separately amplified full range signals to the speaker.
