In the Class D domain, Bel Canto Ref 1000 might give you a little warmer bass. . . JRDG 501 might yield slightly tighter bass driver control. Wired4Sound I have not tried, so won't comment on it.

The be-20s are probably the only speakers I’ve owned that I never considered bi amping. I had a pair of salons and wished for a refined tweeter so I bought the salon 2’s and missed the dynamics of the original because the 2’s were sucking my amp dry. I bought the be-20’s and got the best of both. There’s an after market xover that probably would make a bigger difference than a second amp. The floor spikes with these speakers make a notable difference.
My Audio Research 210's would drive the mids/tweets and maybe one of the class D amps for the bass.Great way to do it, Class-D's are good at bass, just make sure it has more gain than the AR, and an input level control on it so you can level match it to at AR, if not just get a cheap passive volume control for it. like the $49 Schiit Sys.
