You'll need x-over for horizontal.More power from vertical as usual the power is doubled whereas horizontal is 150%.But if your not real power hungry speaker wise bi-amp can be nie.Been wanting my buddy to bi-amp his Maggie/Bryton combo with their nice x-over and a second 4 BST.I think an 89db+ speaker (say a pair or Merlins) would do nic with ll tube with VTL integrated,matching power amp (not enough companies offer matching power amps for their integrateds I think) with a Marchand tube x-over would be great and a value for what you get.But in main mono vertical way to go.Check the thread.
"Bdgregory" - thanks for the link to the thread answered by Steve McCormack. I've read several technical explanations between VERT vs. HORZ bi-amping. Steve's explanation is by far the most simplistic and straightforward. I've decided to go the VERTICAL route to bi-amping as soon as I find matching cables to my Acoustic Zen Hologram II's.
"Chazzo" - Thank you for your response. I'll be going the VERT bi-amp route and not have to deal with a x-over. Meanwhile good luck with your setup with your Maggies.
What sonic differences can I expect from bi-amping?
Thanks guys. Al
