    I would get a two channel bridgable power amp. That way you can bridge it and run mono right now, and if you decide to biamp you can later.
     
  4. Problem with biamping is you're wasting a lot of amp capacity.

    The lows need a lot of power. The highs much less so. Also the main time you need lots of highs, slap/pop, you need either highs for the pop, or lows for the slap. Not both at the same time. One half of the amp is idle most of the time.

    When you couldn't get decent full range cabs, biamps might have made more sense.

    I'd rather get a full range cab and use the amp bridged.

    For PA, makes more sense. Lots more mixing of simultaneous highs and lows.
