yeah, i've been sold. I'm going to stick with single inputs on the axiom's when I order. I'll be giving them more then enough available power as well.

Just extra parts, the extra gold bracket, that could potentially screw up or go missing

If two 120 watt amplifiers are connected to separate sections of a speaker, the maximum available to either section is 120 watts, not 240 watts.

See!! this stuff is so confusing. Far better to stick to one amp, plug it in, turn to 11, enjoy.

But, what about tri-amping?

Bi-, or bi- not. There is no tri-.

It looks like the dragon thing is eating the horsey thing.

I like the idea that the dragon tried to eat a unicorn and its horn is protruding through the skull of the dragon...
and thus the last dragon and the last unicorn lived happily ever after...

So help me out here...If I chose to power the top and bottom of my m80's with 2 separate amps I couldn't change or wouldn't change the low frequency low impedance line as it shows on the graph?When I read somehwere that impedance was a function of the number of drivers I made an assumption I could alter it by separating them in a bi amp configuration.Now with what yu are saying it looks to me that it is being set/controlled in the crossover itself.

Why would you want to alter the impedance of your speakers?

If you were convinced that bi-amping makes a difference, wouldn't you necessarily need to connect both sections to an amplifier with exactly the same amount of gain?
