Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

bi-amp crossover to me

Biamp capable speakers were (are?) a sop to marketing.
It's Cheap and easy to add during manufacturing and this makes Speakers look more upscale than they actually are.
Remove the bits of metal connecting the bind terminals and you can run individual wires and /or Amps to the HF and LF crossovers and thereby the drivers. Helpfull IF yer amps are substandard to the power needs of the speakers
Some claim this all makes audible difference, but then Some buy penis pills too :_)
Your $$, your choice.
Active is where crossovers (either.. self powered $$ OR passive $) are placed Before amplifiers to select out frequencies so the Amps need only deliver specific frequency ranges.
Yesss this works/improves... period. Allowing full 'unmolested' Amp power delivery directly to the drivers.
However it's Dependant on the quality of the Speakers and their inbuilt crossovers, that are being bypassed.
Silk purses and sows' ears comes to mind.
Tricky to setup ..Well.. and best done when Amps are identical otherwise tonal /balance matching is a 'problem'
