New at this forum, so be gentle.
Been away from music for some time, and is now again playing. We have got a setup where we play, and beeing uncertain of the best way to set it up, i was hoping someone could give me some guidelines.
Our system consists of: 1 Soundcraft Spirit M12 mixer, 1 Crown XTI2000, 2 Crown XTI4000's, 3 JBL SRX 715's, 2 JBL SRX 718's and 2 Wharfedal Pro LX-153's.
So basically what i would like to know, is how do we set this up. Specs on the JBL's are 800/1600/3200 @ 8 ohms.
Wharfedale is 450/900/1800 @ 8 ohms.
XTI's are for 8 ohms in stereo 450W on the XTI2000 and 650W on the XTI4000 pr.channel.
In bridged mono i will get 1600 and 2400W pr.channel.
Am i understanding this correct?
As i see it the stereo setup will be unsufficient for the speakers because of the the amp output will be lower than the minimum rating on the speakers. Thus not giving them sufficient punch?
But still, putting them in bridged mono may be too much for the speakers?
I've also heard of daisychainging speakers. Not sure of the term, but is this simply putting them in serial? Then giving a lower impendance of 4 ohm if using two 8 ohm speakers?
I would be really grateful for advices on this. Basic goal for me is the achieve a good punch but still keeping the speakers alive for a long time.
