What exactly does this mean?
Im looking at getting Polk Audio MOMO MMC6500 and Polk Audio MOMO MMC690 i think both of these are biampable so i would like to have an idea of what that means. Thanks.

4 channel amp, one channel to each mid and one channel to each tweet. You will need some type of crossover, either in your HU or an outboard to designate which freq. goes where because you won't be using the passive one that came with it.

The passive crossover for the MMC6500's can be set up for biamping. There is a switch on the crossover to set them for single or dual channel input. As mikeyboc wrote, you can also use a different electronic or passive crossover if you wish to customize your setup.

Biamping generally means that each individual driver has it's own dedicated amplifier channel. The Polk manual is a little screwed up in that it mixes the terms biamp and biwire, which are not the same thing.
