Great idea to bi-amp!What I am thinking of trying is using my Sensation amp to drive my Monitor Audio RS6 speakers.Then I will connect my Sensation preamp outs to my ONE.2.The ONE.2 will drive my bass speakers in my Cerwin Vega CLS-215's.I will run both amps off the same battery supply. This should basicallyput in parallel, the big bypass caps in both amps. What a huge reservoirfor good bass and dynamics.The preamp outs in the Sensation seem perfect for use in bi-amping.This is a great added bonus provided by the Sensation.You could keep your Virtue 2 and use it with a Sensation for bi-amping.Harold
While I don't generally favor bi-amped designs (as I think that a lot of what gives a speaker it's characteristic tone is the crossover design which is usually bypassed when bi-amping), if I actually had some bi-amp-able speakers I would give this a try.
If I must use the Sensation in a certain way then I need to find out how my other chosen components my be limited.
It's just one e, but whatever.What if I don't want to use the buffered subwoofer out on the amp, but wire instead from the receiver to the subs? Will I have phase issues then?This is not entirely make or break for me, but I need to know of possible wiring or performance limitations. If I must use the Sensation in a certain way then I need to find out how my other chosen components my be limited.Sorry, first bigger system, and I want to make sure I'm making well informed decisions.

You will have the phase issues that I spoke about if you use a class A or class AB (analogue) amplifier for the subs. There are no (specific) phase "problems" with the Virtue amps, or the other class-T amps on the market. However, it is a fact that with class-T amps the phase changes with frequency, and it doesn't with 'analogue' amplifiers. Therefore, where the two overlap, there will be a phase issue and it won't sound right (whether you use the output from the Virtue amp, or the output from your receiver). Fortunately there are many (if not a majority) of subwoofer amps that are class-D (because they are more efficient) and they will match with a class-T amp.It does take a bit more thought to get a more complicated system optimised!
