@thoft , ..."Very deep bass..." Really? Thiel PCS loudspeaker | Stereophile.com  
Am I wasting money on the theory of Bi-amping?
Multi-amping could have advantages even if done before the cross-overs, and even more so if each channel has its own power supply. If a speaker has a challenging impedance / phase angle above or below the frequency range of the cross-over the amp...

While I think -3dB @ 23 Hz might be suspect; the reported 35 Hz is spec’s @ 2.5 dB.

@tomthiel, I would characterize “their very obvious differences” as how they appear visually. :-) I believe the Straightwire Maestro’s use individually coated strands layered in side by side groupings that are then woven in an interleaved fashion... 
Cheapest good sounding dvd player?
And,...used Arcam DV-88?  
Any Thoughts?
I am.

I believe Jim Thiel was using Straightwire Maestro’s before moving on to the Goertz speaker cables. Both can be found for relatively inexpensive prices on the used market. The Goertz cables models/gauges choices will depend upon the power output ...

I suppose I could mount the external crossovers on a pair of amp stands  But I’d rather not.

@tomthiel, thanks for your consideration.  
Thiel Owners
@tomthiel, your point is well taken. In my case I could possibly accommodate 1 meter runs, but something like 1.5 meters would probably be preferable.

FWIW, I would place outboard crossovers on shelves in the rack.

Seems to me that an outboard crossover might make the most sense.  
Thiel Owners
@tomthiel, I have little doubt that I would enthusiastically like it.

@tomthiel, I’d consider using outboard cross-overs with my CS 3.5’s, especially if they could be optimized for use with upgraded eq’s. Perhaps even an eq > cross-over > amplification progression?
