I know the pros, but, not cons of powered bass on speakers like goldenear, definitve's super mythos, or polks, as far as stereo listening quality? New member running my legacy focus speakers with crown macro and audio research sp9 markIII
What are you asking?
Let's say you have a audio research Vsi 60 integrated amp running a set of goldenear triton two towers. is the class A quality sound lost in the bass because the speakers have their own bass amplification?
No! It may even be enhanced because the amplifier for the main speakers and the main speakers aren't being asked to reproduce bass. This leaves a large power reserve for the main speakers while asking them to do less. This is definitely a good thing.
Yes your VSI60 will have no affect on your bass. I have never liked speakers with self propelled bass drivers. Synergy is such an important thing and now you have two totally different amplifiers, one that is likely class D. Your now biamping which is incredibly hard to get right with two different amps. Biamping sounds good in theory but I've yet to hear an overall improvement.
