    Gridrah,
    Would a pre-power amp x-over be the same as the speakers' internal? or is it scaled down for the reduced pre-amp out signal?

    If you added the pre-power x-over, would the speakers' internal x-over have to be removed from the circuit?

    I see benefits in Bi-amping...but my question is; on the Lsi9's am I to assume the top terminals are for the high frequency...??

    Imo, speakers don't DRAW, they are FED. Put a passive (or active) network BEFORE the amp in the chain, then we can talk about feedings.

    OK then... I have said I have an 800i in parallel with an RTA8T. If I remove the crossovers on both speaks and use an electronic crossover externally can I run only the highs, L/R and lows, L/R on 2 amps? I don't think impedance is a problem with the Outlaw.

    Just a thought....

    Yes and yes. They are typically rack mountable, but there are also sleek looking silver finished audiophile grade x-overs.

    The main reason I'm interested in them is that I've been thinking about building some 2 way speakers. A cheap stereo 2-way (with sub x-over) can be had for around $100-150.
