Yes I believe you are correct the L and R channels are mono strapped at the amp. I was thinking the same in regards to more power if in Mono block mode but many tell me I will get better sound with Vertical Bi Amping; I may have to just try both. Thanks for the post.
I agree. Monoblocks would be much simpler but I hear from many (in person not on this web site) to set up a horizontal bi-amp with an active crossover for max sound quality. I may just have to set up both to experience the difference myself.
