    Does it make any difference on sound at all if a studio monitor is bi-amped or single amp meaning only one speaker has the amp and uses a crossover to divide the tweeter and woofer. I have heard the M-Audio AV-30 and it uses single amp and I think the sound was alot more clear and better than my Roland DS-30A bi-amped monitor. Does bi-amp suppose to be better then single amp?

    This is the AV-40 but it uses exactly the same things as the AV-30 but only difference is that the AV-30 is a 3in woofer instead of a 4in.

    Basicaly is any bi-amped monitors better than single amped monitors? Since I did notice that all of high end monitors are bi-amped like my Roland DS-30A.

    If you have monitors that are like the M-Audio AV 30 or AV 40 that are 3in or 4in woofers and has a 1in tweeter do you need bi-amp on those too? Or since they are small they don't need bi-amp since it will give them too much power for small compac monitors.
