I'm not positive either, but I think his amplifier is set up for bi amping, but the speakers he's looking at only have a single set of terminals.
Fossil, if you used an active crossover before the amplifier, this will have to be removed. If you want to continue using this amplifier, simply don't use one of the sets of binding posts. I don't know of any amps that <b>require</b> you to biamplify with them.
Is this two way speaker you mentioned a DIY project or a commercially available speaker? I'm assuming its a commercially availble speaker. If you're willing to tinker with the crossover a little bit, odds are you can make it bi-wirable.
It will cause problems because the two amplifiers will fight one another. Even if it did work, you've defeated the purpose of bi-amping by combining the two channels back together.
Can you take apart the speaker and remove the crossover inside, then wire the speakers individually?
even if the speaker had two pairs of connectors you would still need to rip out the passive xover from the speaker cabinets unless you want to filter twice which would be redundant. You you have three choices: remove the passive xover and add a couple of terminals to the box then do the active xover thing, or modify the passive xover and separate the LF from the HF connections then just do biamp without active xover, or, finally, leave everything as it is.
> Just out of curiosity, for amps with several parallel output devices to boost wattage, how is it that the output trans don't see each other as 'loads'?
The output transistors are driven with the same inputs, and can only pass current in one direction, so they can't see each other as loads. They generally have load-sharing resistors on their outputs, and may even be matched to produce identical outputs.
