Biamped powered speakers
« on: August 22, 2014, 05:26:45 pm »

Out of the mass of choices for powered speakers , which ones are truly BIAMPED - meaning two amps and an active crossover. I know the QSC K series is, but are there any other available choices? Many of the manufacturer websites don't say much about it.

QSC list a "1000W power module".  Can you tell me what this is?

A very quick look at websites shows biamped powered speakers from JBL and Yamaha, to name just two. Is there a price range you are looking at, to narrow the search universe?  Mark C.

I was thinking somewhere around the price of the QSC K series, but I'm also wondering what else may be available.

Yep. The Yamaha DXR and DSR's are biamped, and so is the JBL EON 600 series.

Why is it so important that they be biamped?

I suggest you dig down a layer or two on the maker's website -- read the downloaded spec sheet documents. For example, not only are the Yamaha DXR and DSR series bi-amped, but so is the MSR 400. For JBL, not just the prx700 series, but also the EON 515XT are bi-amped.

FWIW, youmight also find that topics like this are better suited to the "Lounge" sub-forum. (That's where I'm more in my element.). Mark C.

Edit:  I'm late to the party (again).

Unless you consider yourself a better speaker designer than the company who made the speaker I would not worry as much about how they do it, but instead focus on what they do.

#1 what is the speakers frequency response?

#2 how loud does it get in SPL..? (forget about watts. Thats like worrying about how many amps your vacuum cleaner draws.).

#3 how does it sound?

JR

PS: IF it's 2 way it's probably biamped, if three way bi-or tri amped. but don't lose any sleep second guessing real speaker engineers. Life is short.
