Hey there guys, I think this might be my first 2nd or 3rd post on here. I am avid PG phan. See what I did there.... :clap: :roll:

Anyways, I just installed a set of Polk Audio SR6500 components in my daily driver and I am powering them from a single PG M25. The sound is absolutely amazing and it's even better than I was expecting. My question is, should I run a bi-amp system? I have a 2nd M25 that I could use one for the tweets and one for the 6.75" mids. I am using a cheapo SSL crossover for the time being. I plan on getting an EQ or a DSP later...

Thanks guys!!

welcome. Bi amping adds some flexibility when done right but also adds time to the equation in tuning it.

Welcome
you can use one M25 bridged for the left channel and the other for the right channel. Than you have perfect stereo separation and twice the power.
With this setup you will hear more difference in sound quality than the bi-amp setup (one for tweeter and one for mid range)

it would give more power but I always liked the ability to tweek the woofer vs tweeter output with the gains, as well as trying variable cross over frequencies to see what sounded best. If more power was all that he was after I would say get an M50 and save the space.

I don't mind the additional tuning time. I like clean, very loud systems.

That sounds like a plan, and would be decently easy for me to get going. I would just power my rears off of another PG amp I have in my stash.... 8)

Thanks guys for your input!!
