RE: I don't know anyone vertical biamping but




The use of a Y adapter into the amplifier isn't an issue, has no ill affect on impedance just as connecting a powered sub isn't an issue.

As for the gain controls adding flexibility, definitely. The older Kenwood integrated amps had an odd feature where the amp has a quasi pre out/main in where using the main in leaves the volume, balance, and tone controls in-line, this was to allow balancing with the main amp in a 4 channel setup. It also has its uses with both vertical and horizontal biamping.

The balance can be used in a similar fashion as your gain controls to balance the output of the high frequency drivers with the bass. It just so happens I happen to have two Kenwood KA-4006 integrated amps and set this up just for shits and giggles. I was also auditioning my new Kenny table and a second pair of Heresys, I must say stacked the dynamics were QUITE impressive lol.
