Im using powered tops and powered subs with a drive rack and here's my issue. I'm bypassing the crossover on my tops which are the EV EKX 12p which is working out fine but I can't bypass the crossover on my subs EV EKX 15sp, I don't like the fact that I can't bypass my subwoofers internal crossover and I'm still using a x over on my driverack as well. What should I do in this situation? My Subs don't sound Right at all.

    Set the DRPA's lows filter as 20hz BW24 - 500hz LR24.
    Set the sub's lpf to 100hz,
    Set the DRPA's highs filter to 100hz LR24.

    Of course, you could also send a full range signal to the speakers and let their x-overs handle everything. I would be a cleaner set-up, but you gain more control (more PEQs and output band gains, more limiting) using the 1st example.

    My first initial thought was to leave the driverack full range to the subs and then the tops and just use some eq and limiting on the drive rack. Thanks for the info on this. :) I'll give this a try.
