Would this be a good processor for custom home theater speak

If one were to build custom home theater speakers would the driverack 360 work as digital crossovers and equalization for them as opposed to using a passive crossover?

Should this processor in theory be better than having a passive crossover then?

And they are capable of 4 way operation right?

Does the auto equalization work well enough that you wouldn't have to do it yourself?

How much better is digital crossovers than passive?

I've never used a digital processor before and was hoping he someone could answer my questions thanks.

    It would work really well, except there are only 3 inputs and 6 outputs.
    You would need 2 for 5.1 or 3 for 7.1, for the input side.
    You only spec'd (apparently) the front left and right speakers as 4-way, but didn't mention the center or rears. I'll assume these be full range types.
    For 5.1..... you can organize your inputs anyway that make sense to you, but the 2) 4-ways MUST be on separate 360's. I separated them like this...
    360 #1:
    Input 1 - Front left, Outputs 1,2,3,4
    Input 2 - Center, Output 5
    Input 3 - Sub, Output 6

    360 #2:
    Input 1 - Front right, Outputs 1,2,3,4
    Input 2 - Surround left, Output 5
    Input 3 - Surround right, Output 6
