Actually, a "bi-amped" monitor has a seperate power amp for each  
speaker element.  The crossover network, then, seperates the line  
level signal between treble and bass and each signal is sent to its  
own power amp.

For example, the SRM450 monitor has two power amps: a 300watt amp for  
the woofer (large speaker) and a 100watt amp for the horn tweeter.

Powered monitors (those with their own internal amps) are sometimes  
called "active monitors".  Monitors without power amps are called  
"passive monitors".
