    Re: Active setup

    Take a look at MB Quart REF4.50. These are small and somewhat underrated (the REF4.80 realistically did over 4x100watts at 4ohm). This was a nice line of amplifiers, but I think they were discontinued. Sonicelectronix is selling REF4.50 for just $90. Another amplifier you may want to consider is an Alpine F300. These are small Class D amplifiers. Alpine MRX/MRP are also somewhat underrated(maybe by 20%). I believe they're being replaced by the MRX-F35, and a lot of vendors are still selling those F300s, for something like $150 a pop. Both REF4 and MRP-F300 have a very clean, low noise, low distortion signal. If you're going to drive the amplifier hard, the MRP-F300 could be better. My REF4.80 powering my active front speakers gets really hot during summer.

    Re: Active setup

    your running rears, why?

    Im using my xtant 4180c on my 2 way active setup right now, i plan on bridging it to the mids and using the 2100b on the highs, but i need a place to put a third amp, my xtant amps are from the days before mtx bought them out though, if im correct yours is a newer model and unfortunately is basically an mtx amp

    Im not sure if you can run a 2 way active front and a passive rear off a normal hu, how are u going to accomplish this? You wont be able to take advantage of using T/A on an active setup which is really cool



    and for amps, well the mids are going to need more power than the highs, right now everything in mine is off 45w x 4 and the mids definitely need more power, the tweets are set at -5 db usually and there isnt much midbass

    well you do know you need a channel per speaker and i suppose you could use a y-splitter to combine the rcas from 4 sets to two, but that means you could only set one setting for all 4 highs and one setting for all 4 mids. Honestly i think you and your guests would be completely happy with a decently powered 2 way active front stage. Just send say 50-75w to your highs and 100-150 to your mids and seriously doubt the people in the back will complain about the music not being loud enough

    What hu are you using? do you know if it active capable? you could get an external active xover if you want to have complete control over front and rear speakers

    Hey. Get rid of your rear fill.
    But if your dead set, use one amp for mids one for highs.
    Just to let you know, your music could sound10 times better if you'd listen and get rid of your rear speakers. Do some research.

    I feel ya. The problem with rear fill is that sound from speakers in the back travel to the front and visa versa, and cause a type of distortion called phase interference. I used to have rear fill but when I decided to let it go I realized what everyone was talking about. It can sound loud and decent but you won't have the clarity you are missing out on.

    Read this article, I always recommend it.

    But hey, everything is personal preference so do what you really want to do.
