Yes and no.

The "yes" is that I picked up a Powersoft T604 to run the main speakers bi-amped.

No passive crossover, though. I did a bit of playing around, and found that the low-pass inductors would need to stand exceptionally large currents. Easier to just use 4-core SpeakOn. Add in the arguments for individual band limiting, and staying active made more sense for this system.

Thanks for the interest.

Chris

Yep, it's an excellent amp. My only complaint would be that it's not great for stage monitor use, as there are only 2x SpeakOn (NL4) outputs - you'll need some kind of splitter to get to 4x NL2 to run to different monitors.

The T604 sees infrequent use in my home stereo, as I use it to prototype 2-way designs. It's very easy to get things sounding good when you have that amount of DSP (and power) available.

I did more of a write-up here: Powersoft T-series

Long-term, I'm thinking of picking up a couple of T304s for stage monitor use, and another T602 for more power into the subs.
