    So I've been looking at the Earthquake Cinenova 5. It claims to have a filter "High-pass / low pass variable filter, range 20 Hz to 5 kHz (one/ channel)." My question is, could this serve as an active crossover to bi-amp the mains? For example: for each speaker, use one channel with a lowpass filter to power the low frequency driver(s), and use a second channel with a high pass filter to power the mids/highs. Tell me what you guys think [​IMG] or [​IMG] and why.

    Thanks,
    Mat

    This isn't ICQ... give it some time.

    The active crossover might work. You will need to be able to adjust the output levels and slope for each crossover channel (not sure if the Cinenova does this). You will also need to remove the existing passive crossover in your speakers. Look at pro gear... you can pick up an active crossover fairly cheaply if you want to experiment.
