    I am contemplating using 2 Onkyo M-282, each being used to drive the front speakers only (Receiver would be used to drive center and rears). Is there an advantage to using 2, or would I be wasting my money?

    Current Setup:

    MB Quart QLS1030 Mains (4 ohm)
    MB Quart QLS530 Center (4 ohm)
    Klipsh SP-1 Rears
    Velodyne CHT-12 Sub
    Onkyo TX-701 A/V Receiver
    1 Onkyo M-282 Amp (2 channel amp)
    Denon 1600 DVD player

    Thanks.

    If I understand this correctly, bi-amping involves getting an external crossover as well as taking apart your speakers and disconnecting their active crossovers. If this is the case I will not be bi-amping.

    Actually my speakers do have 2 sets of binding posts. Would this serve as an advantage?

    Adding a second amp isn't going to do very much for you I don't think. Search bi-wiring and bi-amping here and you'll find lots of reading on both topics.
