Do you have an electronic crossover?

Why would anyone drive a nice pair of MS's with a Technics or JVC...?

What are the lower frequencies going to drive?

Hi,
from a manufacturer that does NOT claim to have improved the design yet again every six months. This must exclude 90% (or could that be 99%) of the far east manufacture.
Someone with a reputation for long life cycles and reliability.

Hi,
how about adding a passive RC filter in front of the bass amp?
The bass amp and bass speaker will not be damaged by using bass only frequencies.
The mid and treble range speaker will play better if you can cut the very low frequencies from the driving amplifier. Again a passive RC filter at the amp input could be used to achieve this.

Thats like telling you what kind of food to eat... there are just so many ones out there, then there is availibility and budget to consider. If I were you and had a low budget and had to go far east, pick up a Luxman from the early 80's or a early 90's Denon.
