Default Any sub plate amps with active filter for the sats?

Looking at 2.1 plate amps and wd like to make a sub but including an active filter for the sats (not just the sub). Is there something for sale, such as a plate amp with this feature?

Never found one. Most AVR's have "big or "small" in their config, so for the 99% of the market, they see no need. Short answer, build your own.

I don't use plate amps in my main system. I use a traditional stereo amp. It should not matter much, but the Parasound sounded WAY better than the BASH or Hafler plates I had. So, traditional active crossover and traditional amp for me. Two of my small systems still use the BASH. Integration is not as good and distortion is higher. Practicality wins though.

Hypex makes one, and I also think that Sinewave on Aliexpress have one.

Aliexpress.com : Buy 300W Bi AMP Hi End TAS5630 CLASS D ACTIVE SPEAKER AMPLIFIER MODULE WITH SMART EQ AND WIDE RANGE SMPS AND MP3 HOST PLAYER from Reliable 300W Hi End Bi-amp Active Speaker Module suppliers on Amplifier store

what about the baby Hypex AS2.100? I've sent an email to Hypex to ask if it includes a high pass filter (as I'm a noob and can't understand the info on the site exactly).

Hypex AS2.100 will do almost anything. It's DSP powered with functions like the MiniDSP.

This company seem to be the answer to my prayers; wanted to go active for a design combining subs with full range units; using passive crossovers just made no sense, complicated and expensive. Having everything in one unit (or 2) is just great, so simple, cost effective and also maximizing the performance of small full range drivers.
