Safely Bi-amping Klipsch Cornwall III's

Recommended Posts

I currently own a pair of Klipsch Cornwall III's and have been bouncing around with different amps to decide what I like the most. Right now, I am in between a Bob Latino VTA 120 I built and a Pass Clone M2x I also built. I love top end and detail I get from the VTA-120's KT88 tubes, but the bass from the M2x is so punchy and tight. 

 

I have an SP-12 preamp from Tubes4hifi that has two outputs. Can I SAFELY biamp the Cornwall's but using the VTA-120 tube amp on the mid/high and Pass M2x on the lows? I see a lot of people saying it is perfectly fine, but others mention it is bad for your amplifiers. I do have a volume knob on the VTA-120 i can use to even out the output to match the M2x.

 

Any feedback is appreciated.

As long as you remove the metal jumpers there's no issue doing it that way.

The amps won't give a hoot if there's no load at one end of the spectrum so long it's effectively an "open" and not a "short."  If you've not modified the crossovers (possibly incorrectly) you will be good to go.
