Looking to biamp my Lowthers.

Hola,

I decided to finally take the plunge and biamp my Lowther DX-3's.

I went out and overspent on a new SET using genuine Western Eclectic 300B's, but now I can't for the life of me find where the tweeter hook ups are on the damned speaker.

I mean, I can find the main speaker hook up, and it looks almost like to goes right the the back of the speaker cone...but I can't find where the woofer and tweeter part diverge so I can hook up the two amps.

A little help?

Also, how about if I just hook both amps to the same terminals on the speaker, I'd be biamping in way that way, too. Right?

At best, you'd be single amping. The other amp would fail, possibly catastrophically. At worst, you'd lose them both. Never, ever connect two amplifiers to the same load!

No, I think CharlyD was being serious.

I admit, I, too, always thought the term, "Never, ever connect two amplifiers to the same load!" was a sexual reference, but it actually does apply to Hi Fi in this case.

Guess I should pay more attention to the date when responding to these outrageous questions. Glad to oblige.
