Bi-amping B&W 703's

I've got a pair of B&W 703's and a pair of matching Electrocompaniet AW220's.

Currently I'm using the amps in their mono setting one for each speaker.

Not sure if this would work with the crossover, but would there be any advantage in removing the plates that connect the speaker terminals and use one amp in stereo mode for the bass and one in stereo mode for the mid and highs?

Any input would be appreciated.

There is no right or wrong answer here, try for yourself- however horizontal biamping as you have descirbed has the least chance of being effective.

Vertical biamping (one amp per speaker) or mono moode on your amps is going to most likely work best. The differentiator being how your amps sound in mono mode versus stereo mode.

Keep in in mind that most amps do not have a mono mode which is what throws a twist into your question.

I dont think that horizontal biamping is worth trying, it just doesnt make any sense.

Guess I should not have said mono mode.

The Electrocompaniet amp have a little button at the back that allows you to switch from stereo to mono, but I'm not sure if that's the same as bridging on other amps.

Considering that I'd need more speaker cable I'll probably leave it as is.

That is briding the amps. I would try unbridged stereo operation 1 amp per speaker.

That should yield a nice improvement.

when you say unbridged stereo operation with 1 amp per speaker do you mean using only one channel of each amp per speaker.

When the amps are in the stereo setting I really would need only one amp for the pair of speakers. Maybe I misunderstand what you mean since this doesn't seem to make too much sense.
No- you would use both channels on each amp.

So you have both channels of amp 1 plugged into speaker 1. One channel on the high frequency terminals, the other on the low.

Same thing for speaker 2/ amp 2.

This is called vertical biamping and is typically adventageous because the amps power supply/toroid only needs to drive the low fequency drivers on one speaker.

Just remember to pull the jumpers off each speakers biwire terminals (high freq to low freq bridges) so you dont short out the amp.

Good luck- I really like the way the EC stuff sounds. It seems like a good match for B&W.
