I'm setting up a system and just wondering why you say you can not use bridged amps to run Biamped speakers?

If i have a bridged amp running at 4ohm powering the Lf  driver in a speaker that is 4 ohms why would that not work?

Did you read the manual on the Crown?  Don't get bogged down by the drawing that shows the "double current" mode on the outputs, just use the parallel switch (which the manual indicates ties the inputs together) and hook 1+/1- to channel 1 and 2+/2- to channel two and call it a day.

Since this posting just got woke back up (Phasesonix you'll need to display your full name)

As for Crown Micro and Macro Tech amps "parallel mode" in the case of those amps it is not a input Y cable so to speak switch.
It operates the amp output channel in parallel where you need to jumper the + output terminals together for driving very low impedance loads with a high current drive.
