    Before Gadget askes for more details....
    Is it your intention to set up a "zoned" set-up, or just shooting everything onto the dance floor? Or are you setting up 2 separate system?

    YA... what he said... :mrgreen:
  • just shooting everything onto the dance floor. We have a show coming up in 2 weeks at a large gym.

    Are you playing wide or long? It will make a big difference in my recommendation.

  • I think wide..thanks

    That makes things easier to avoid the problems associated with mismatched speakers.
    You will want to set up a 2 x 5 (bi-amp tops and mono sub).

    Select the full range speakers that you believe to be your "primaries" and connect those to the hi outputs. Adjust the hipass filter in the 90 to 125hz range (whatever you decide on) LR24. These will be your main (center) speakers.

    Connect the other set to the mid outputs and set the high pass filter the same as the others, and set the Low pass filters to about 17K, BW12 or 18. These will be your left and right fringe coverage.

    Connect the subs to the low output. Set the filters acordingly. low pass to match the high pass established earlier, LR24. High pass is probably set internally by the subs DSP.

    This is only one possible set-up, but this is what I would try first.
