Does any use a crossover and split their freqs. ?

If so, what are you using for ya horn, mids and basses respectivly?

EDIT: and is it ay passive or active respectivly?
If active, what are you driving it through?

Sorry to double post, but am I posting this in the wrong forum?
Or should I ask people at talkbass?

I'm not sure of anybody here who has a bi-amp rig as of yet. I can say for sure nobody 3-way splits it. I could half-ass some info by looking at specs sheets, but perhaps some of the older folks at talkbass would indeed have the info.

But, for what it's worth, I would set mine up to where I have EQ peaks. I scoop out some low-mids (not telling you my secret!), so I'd set the low crossover to exactly where I scooped the low-mids. For mids, I'd do the top crossover exactly where I boost the upper mids. For example, let's just say <200Hz goes to the sub, 200Hz<x<2000Hz goes to the mid cabinet, and 2kHz+ goes to the top. However, if the treble are straight tweeters, you'll want to have the top end crossover go all the way from 4-6k.

as far as the horn frequency it depens on your cab what freq you run it at. most only have one setting but some have a swtich on the back that selects a frequency of the horn.

as far as bi amping goes i find it best to skip my 8x10 from the crossover and just use the crossover for subs. there really is not one good setting for subs because it depends on the venue. there are many factors, how big the stage is, how hollow it is underneath, how many people there ext you just have to mess with the settings untill you get it where it's supposed to be.

You guys know of any famous bassists that bi or tri-amp?

As far as I have looked, I've found two;

Dirk Lance - former Incubus (they lost it all when he left)
He tri-amped, using Eden cabs and heads. he used those navigators, he's a rich man.
He ran two signals, one dirty, one clean, so he had spent alot, but he sounded sick.

Chris Squire - Yes!
He bi-amped and sent his higher freqs. to a guitar amp lol. What a champ.

so yeah, anymore that I could research into would be cool, thanks.

There are a few guys who did the clean/dirty bi/tri-amp. Timmy C from Rage/Audioslave had 3 stacks - one clean, one dirty, and one filthy. Billy Sheehan sends the neck pickup to a clean amp and the middle pickup to a dirty amp. Justin Chancellor from Tool has one clean amp and (at least) one for effects. However, those aren't really bi-amping. There's no crossover, just a signal split.

John Entwistle was one of the first guys to discover bi-amping and the hi-fi sound. By the end of his life, he was using a 3-way crossover. He had speakers for the lows, speakers for the mids, and speakers for the highs.
