BIC RtR-EV15 15" Biampable Floor Speaker
I want to Bi-Amp these speakers. I will be using Kenwood Basic M2 220watts RMS@8ohm for the woofer and Kenwood KM-106 150watts RMS@8ohm for mid/tweeter. In Bi-Amp setup does the woofer and mid/tweeter still see an 8ohm load or does it see a 4ohm load? THX
Each speaker is specified at 8 Ohms.

Would I be able to hook this speaker right up to my stereo reciever powering each with 200 watts rms with the bass turned up all the way? Or would I have to add a crossover myself or bi amp them with separate crossed over amps?
Yes these will work plugged into a standard receiver, they do not have to be bi-amped. You would not need a separate crossover if bi-amped, they would just require two stereo amps, or four mono amps for this application. I cannot say whether they will handle a ton of output with the bass turned all the way up, this will always limit the speakers output capability and its generally not recommended at higher volume levels.

On the woofer, what size is the voice coil and how much is the "throw" in inches and under shipping what does "truck only" mean
Unfortunately the manufacturer does not specify the voice coil size or Xmax on the woofer. You may be able to contact BIC directly for more information.

Please provide details on the cabinet construction:- bracing, if any- material type- material thickness- dampening material thickness
BIC is an excellent company. Although the catalog page does not specify, I am sure it meets or surpasses what is industry standard.The speaker has teinals for full range or, rove a jumper ans go bi-amp.

Can I run these speakers with a full range or straight signal from my receiver/amp?
Just wondering if I can run these in a full range set up without the need for a crossover or any filter type thing.
Yes, the great thing is that you can run th full range and of your need increases, buy a crossover and another amp for the sub and biamp.

Q. about the impedance.. Does it dip like other speakers.
Simple question but I'm not sure who would know this, I finally realized a good place to ask . Here.Does the impedance dip with these tower speakers? It says 8 ohms here:http://www.bicamerica.com/showpage.php?brand=3&type=15&spkrID=120but I'm wondering if it dips or goes down into 6 or 4 ohms.I Remember reading about the cerwin vega towers, I think VE 12's they dip into 4ohm and different frequency's.Thanks in advance for any info or answers.oh another thing, is it true that this speaker is built with help from Dr. HSU.- There's a review on amazon about this. Not sure if it's 100% I should read it again.here(amazon review related to my second question)http://www.amazon.com/review/R2JADM691AVZKF/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B003H3L76I&nodeID=172282&store=electronics
Yes, the impedence (Z) of any speaker or speaker system will change as the frequency changes. The change is minimal and will not damage an amplifier.I have no information about who participated in the design or engineering of this speaker.
