    Bi amping a 3 way system

    I want to biamp my 3 way system I have MB quart 8" diamond audio 6.5" and 1" tweeter. Im useing musicomp MCX335 3 way crossovers. IM using a phoenix gold 600.2 TI 150 W x 2 and I want to add a 400.2 TI 100 W x 2 What I want to know is can you use two different amps on the same crossover. And if so should I use the 100 W x 2 for the 8 "s and the 150 W x 2 or the mids and tweets. or the other way around thanks for any input

    Low end frequencies always take more to make them loud than higher end freqs. do. I would take the more powerfull amp and use it for the low end. As far as different amps after the crossover, it doesn't matter. Your just channeling the signal to different places. If you had say a realyl crappy amp and a really nice amp, it might sound weird, but as long as you stay withing a constant theme you should be ok.

    You can only bi-amp if the crossover allows it. Does the crossover allow for bi-amping (i.e. it has two sets of inputs)?
