Bi Amping Klipsch Cornwalls

Hello - just purchased a pair of Klipsch Cornwalls - love them. Currently powering with a Conrad Johnson MV-52 - nice warm tube amp. Am considering bi amping with a Carver M 1.5T solid state amp. Asking for any advise on this. Was going to connect the Carver to the low end inputs and the Conrad Johnson to the high end inputs. Thought the tube amp into the high end would compliment the horn brightness. Am very happy with the sound using the Conrad Johnson alone - thought this would be fun and interested to hear the difference. Pre amps are a Trilogy 900 tube model and a Carver C1. Thank you. Buz

Do these amps have gain

Do these amps have gain controls so that their output levels can be set to match? If not, it will not work. If yes, whatever.

Gotta have that nice plump

Speaking for myself, gotta have that nice plump tube bass.

There can be no pain without suffering. - Old audiophile axiom

Yes - separate gain via each

Yes - separate gain via each preamp. Hooked up the Bi Amped set up - sounds very good - it is a bit of extra time to set the bass and mid / treble volume levels but very tunable to precise tone. Set the tube amp to the bass side and the solid state amp to the mid / treble side.

That's a surprise.
