    Bi-wire MB PSD316

    I'm trying to figure out wht would be my best option. I have a MB PSD316 set which if your not familiar with that its MB's premium line 3 way comp set. The musicomp crossovers that come with the set allow for bi-wiring (bi-amping) the Midbass 6.5. I also have a JL 300/4.

    Now my options are either bi-amping the 3 way set for the front stage which allows me to get a little more midbass up front since i can play with the gains a little bit. this would mean that the mids would be getting 75 watts each, and the 4 inch and tweets would be getting 75 together.

    My second option is bridging the amp and running 150 x 2 into the whole set ( way over MB's recommended wattage.

    My third option is running the front 3 way with 2 x 75, and then using the other 2 channels to run MB Premium 5 1/4 and tweet in the rear.


    Any ideas??

    I'd agree with that, but thats a lot of wasted time running extra wire and putting in speakers that might not even stay (the rears)

    And i dont want to blow them up either by putting double their rated power through them

    I personally prefer ti biwire, because it affords you more control over the set.

    Unless you are feeding the rears a dedicated rear surround sound signal from a surround processor, I would stick with fronts only. A stereo signal contains the mono information also and does not belong behind you.

    so basically use the full 4 channel amp to run the fronts, and bi amp'ing the mids so that i have more control, since the mids will be powered seprately from the 4 inch and tweets. do you think that 75 watts into just the 4 inch and tweets are too much since this is an a/b amp which is more effecient?
