I'm hoping that you could help me with my setup. I quickly tried setting up the mains and sub following the quick start guide but I'm not getting a good result. I guess it's to be expected that some tweaking is necessary since my speakers are not on the presets. I would also like to incorporate the monitors. Should I even use the PA+ with it or should continue running it from the aux outs from the mixer?

The following are my equipments:
Amp: Crown XS 900 (http://www.crownaudio.com/media/pdf/legacy/136268.pdf)
Speakers: Pair of Cerwin Vega Pro Stax 153 (http://www.cerwinvega.com/manuals/pro/p ... manual.pdf)

Pair of Powered Alto TSSub15 (http://www.altoproaudio.com/products/tssub15)

Pair of Powered Seismic Audio FL-15MP-PW (http://www.seismicaudiospeakers.com/pai ... MP-PW-Pair)

Thank you

    highs - 100hz LR24
    Subs - 45hz BW18 - 100hz LR24
    Set the sub to flat, because you do not want to use the 80hz filter.

    You can you the PA+ to run mains and monitors... 1) if you run mono, 2) you follow the instructions found in the Read Me First / FAQ section. viewtopic.php?f=60&t=2228

    Check this out as well for auto eq. viewtopic.php?f=60&t=2986

    Thank you, Dra for your response. I got quite some reading to do. Before I continue, how should I wire the mains and 2 powered monitor? Should I separately daisy chain the 2 passive mains and the 2 monitor. This will end up with 2 separate input to the DRPA+. Then use each channel of "high" for the main and monitor chains?

    Passive Main 1 --> Passive Main 2 --> DRAP+ High Left Channel
    Active Monitor 1 -- > Active Monitor 2 --> DRPA High Right Channel

    Does this look right? With this setup, I should pick mono. Correct?

    I added another power amp (Crown X4000) and a pair of Cerwin-Vega INT-152 V2. Can I just plug these to the high output in DRPA and connect the existing Crown XS900 and Cerwin Vega speaker setup to the mid output? In this setup, all XLR outlets in DRPA are occupied with different amps and speaker pairs on high, mid and low. For this setup, I would select 2x6, correct?

    I thought of doing 2x4 configuration daisy chaining speakers but for some reason, the CV pro stax does not work when daisy chained. It has 2 input jacks but I guess those are not for daisy chaining.

    I decided to not use the DRPA with the monitors.

    2x6 - Yes. Adjust the bandwidths accordingly.
