multiple dacs for DCX2496?
 
Simple question, but the behringer manual is in every language but english... I'd like to used the Behringer as a 3-way active crossover. If I don't want to use the behringer's internal dac (the behringer's input is digital) is my only choice to get one dac for each output? Is there some work around to use a single external dac instead? Thanks.

Yes but don't expect great sound. It's a lot of work and you'll be lucky to get mediocre sound. Worth it if you are building a copy bay distributing audio to multiple machines but not for a three way crossover setup.

this being the case of... the behringer generally?

If you mean the Behringer isn't much to write home about then I can't comment given my limited exposure to it but I doubt you will improve on it by attempting to use a single dac.

my question is more, given I need the behringer for this system, is there a way to feed it with an external dac and have it bandpass the analogue signal. Or does it require a digital signal input, which means (if I can bypass it's internal DAC) I'd need a bunch of external DACs.

You already have a digital input and the crossover functions in the digital domain. What you need is a digital output, well, 3 digital outputs as shown in this thread.
