Default Triamping Magnepans

I am getting a pair of 3.6s and have a 3 way x-over and 3 celeste amps / now called Moons. My question is has anyone triamped
any three way Magnepans before and if so what advice do you have.

I have never been a fan of passive x-overs in hi rez systems,not to

Hi Andrew,

I have 3.6's and I am on the long road to tri-amping. One of the best items I have found for a starting point is wriiten by a person whose user name here is "Davey". Here is the link to his 3.6 active crossover:

I am originally from Montreal too. Good luck with your project.

Cheers,
Graeme

Can be DIY-ed very easy, they sell a kit for 65 USD...

The theory (in R-C instead of L-C-R...):
