Ok so the marantz 9.2 channel amp has like 110 wrms @8 ohms per channel

I know the S60s can be bi-wired or bi-amped

Bi amp means more power from 2 different amps. Adds better sound and more detailed?

My question is could I use two front channels for the lows and 2 surround channels for the highs? For a total of 220 wrms per tower? Or will that **** up my amp.and or speakers

    It doesn't work like that. You cannot bi-amp from a piece of audio gear that has a single shared power supply as does every AVR made. Pure marketing hype.....otherwise known as BS.

  • awsome thanks F1. Bi wiring would be the option for me tho correct? With some good wire as opposed to the stock material Polk provides?

    Bi-wiring, running 2 sets of cables, from 2 different out puts, to each individual's binding post on your speakers, can be done with most AVR's. Most people hear no difference from using this method or a single cable run.

    More people hear a difference when they remove the factory jumpers and replace it with jumpers made with good quality wire.

    Yes, just do this. Ideally try to make he jumpers from the same wire as the cable. Blue jeans cable has some nice affordable options.
