The right way to Bi Amp on Denon AVR3806

I have found in one review of the AVR3806 that is possible to Bi Amp the front speakers in a different way that is included in the user manual .
Routing the front pre-amps out feedind the VDP imput and assign the sorround back amp to Zone 3 . Then to select the VDP imput to play in Zone 3. Finnaly to connect the speakers terminals of the SBack to the front and right LF speakers terminals. This way let you adjust the volume of the Zone 3 to increase or decrease the LF ratio on your speakers. Is this a better way ?, and most important ┬┐Is this the correct way?
Thanks , Jorge from Argentina

SOURCE: Denon AVF988 to power amp to whole house speakers

jbell302, Check both remote spkers for operation from the A spks output if good, switch B remote spks to A main connect & main A spks to the B remote connection on the Denon spks outputs . Most amp sources do not like different ohm spks types & different cable or spks A-B. lenghts, because this makes up to resistances problems, making the amp to work harder & understanding what is going on. THE AMPS PROTECTION CIRCUIT IS AT ALERT & TRIES TO BALANCE THE RESISTANCE VOLUME. Best move is to try use the same spks. lenght & a higher qauge wire; 12.14.18qa. to better balance the output volume! All matching spks. pairs would help alot as well!

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Denon

zone 2 volume can be adjusted by zone2 remote control (small one which came with the unit) or by main remote control if you switch it to zone2 mode. My main rem control has a slide switch i have to put in zone 2 position to operate zone 2 amp.

It can be possible to bi-amp a pair of Klipsch RB-81 with this receiver for stereo listening, and if yes, how...


Bi-amping indicated that you have two amps, one for the tweeters, adn another for the woofer, in a two way system. If you don't have two seperate amps, you can use the speaker A & B outputs to run seperate speaker llines to each set of speaker inputs, but that will not be true bi-amping. Another alternative is to use jumpers to connect the speaker inputs together, this not needing seperate amps. Here's a link to the owner's manual:

Zone 2 Setup on the RX-V773 using the ZONE2/PRESENCE Extra Speakers The RX-V773 extra speaker terminals can power one set of speakers for Zone 2 or Presence speakers. If the extra speaker terminals are utilized then the RX-V773 cannot be set for Bi Amp (Surround Back/BI-AMP terminals). Setting the Extra Speaker Terminals Note: The RX-V773 remote control will be used to access the On Screen Menu of receiver. 1. Press the On Screen button on the remote control to enter the On Screen Menu. 2. The On Screen display should be displayed on the TV/Monitor. 3. Press the Arrow Down button on the remote until Setup comes up in the screen. 4. Press the Enter Button on the remote control. 5. The Setup Menu will come up across the TV/Monitor screen. 6. Use the Arrow Left & Right buttons on the remote to navigate to Speaker. 7. Press the Arrow Down button on the remote to select Manual Setup. 8. Press the Enter Button on the remote control to enter Speaker Manual Setup menu. 9. Speaker Manual Setup menu with Power Amp Assign highlighted will come up. 10. Press the Enter Button on the remote control to enter Power Amp Assign menu. 11. Speaker Manual Setup, Power Amp Assign menu will come up with Basic highlighted. 12. Press the Arrow Down button on the remote to select 7ch+1ZONE. 13. Press the Enter button on the remote to select 7ch+1ZONE. 14. Press the On Screen button to exit the on screen menu. To control Zone 2 using the RX-V773 remote, the switch at the upper left side (above the BD/DVD Scene button) of the remote must be set to Zone 2. To see the operations on the front of the Yamaha receiver you must press the Zone Control button on the front of the receiver. Note: Only analog signals can be sent to Zone 2. If you want to output the sound from Zone 2, connect an external component to USB Thumb drive, USB iPhone/iPod, Network, AV 5-6 or Audio 1-2 by analog connection. For AM/FM radio the antennas must be attached.

Can i use front output A and B to bi amp my wharfedale 9.5s


Technically, yes, but the same audio would be traveling across the two pairs of wires that would be arriving via a single pair to the jumpered speakers. NO electrical difference.

Read up on bi-amping and by-wiring (BUY-wiring) before pursuing that path. The underlying presumption of an improvement from either is that there are deficiencies in your system to begin with. It's all snake oil designed to sell cables and amps.

Can i bi-wire the front left and right speakers


Not with this unit.

But WHY? Bi-wiring is a myth. Whether the channel's double wires join (dead short) at the amp end or the speaker end makes no electrical difference to the speaker or the sound. But it DOES get you to buy more esoteric wire. Cha-ching for them!!!

But to flip an old saying, believing is seeing (or hearing). Go for it if you want. Someone is always willing to take your money.

1) Not with this unit. WHY bother? Sending identical program to two drivers over separate wires is the same as sending it over one pair.

2) No. Insertion of a microphone tells the unit you're doing setup. The microphone picks it up and sends it to a microprocessor for evaluation. The sound from the mic never finds its way out to a speaker. THAT would be a feedback loop and the tweeters wouldn't like it. (sizzle sizzle)

Can i connect 2 sub woofers to my onkyo receiver model tx-sr604 ,and if so how. and is bi wiring of front 2 speakears and surround 2 speakears any good iam using polk audios tsi300 as both front and...


You can hook as many subs as you like since the Onkyo only provides the Pre-Out Line Level to the amp(s) that drive it (them). I run two myself.

Bi-wiring is a personal choice and some swear by it while some of us swear at it in a modern home environment. The premise of bi-wiring is that your amps or crossover networks **** to start with so you have to do all this work-around.

My $.02 is you add complexity, waste speaker wire (which can be expensive if you subscribe to the theory that wire can change the sound other than at the cash register, but don't get me started on that), amplifier resources, and MAYBE you'll think you hear an improvement. Perhaps if you lived in an anechoic labratory you might. I think it's a crock.

http://www.brilliancehifi.co.uk/how-to-bi-wire-speakers.htm

If you look at the second diagram you'll notice the fundamental electrical circuitry of the speaker wire is essentially unchanged except you now have twice as much speaker wire. The same amplifier output posts still feed the same speaker input posts. How can this be electrically different?

You'll rarely find anyone who can produce a measured audible difference with any of the snake-oil schemes to get into your wallet. It's always flowery prose and faith.

Onkyo tx-sr601 bi wire with zone 2


SMCCARTY,
The idea behind bi-wiring speakers is to get the highest quality of sound by getting the sound from two separate sources doing separate jobs. Lower frequencies are harder for an amplifier to produce than higher frequencies. So it is common to give these frequencies to two different amplifiers so each can produce the highest quality of sound. By removing the low end from the top end amplifier, it provides the top end amp more headroom thus reducing the chances of clipping. Clipping can easily be heard from the tweeters destoying not only the sound but your speakers as well. It is common practice in pro and car audio to use separate amps for subbass, low, mid and high; four amps working together to their corresponding drivers (more or less depending on the system and type of audio being produced).

In your case, getting the two different sources from basically the same amp (power supply), would not accomplish the full intent of bi-wiring; it would just make more wiring for the same end result. However still a good thought on your end. Onkyo receivers are great because of their beefy power supplies. Not very many other brands have such strong power supplies. Denon's are close but not equal.

Bi-Amping my speakers with HTR-5850


You can at a minimum, bi-wire your speakers by wiring the speakers with the A and B speaker outputs. The A speaker outputs end up running the tweeters and the B will end up powering the woofers.
