Thanks guys....starting to get an idea.......
is there no issue with signal strength or such by sending different signals left and right pan to different speakers???.....then I guess you're saying daisy chain each subsequent top or sub......
I know I must appear really flipping dumb....but honestly....I have no idea how some of these things work....once we navigate away from "the norm"
Corey mate.......thanks....I really struggle to follow your method mate.....I really appreciate your time and effort
I would seriously try the most simple solution first.
Take the L/R output from your board into the Left and Right sub inputs.
Your Mackie's are equipped with a built in cross-over. The full range signal can be sent to them, and only 40-120Hz will be amplified by the sub.
Use the HPF out into the DSR's inputs. I would just run the DSR's in full range. Despite the fact that the DSR's state that their HPF is set to 125Hz (I like others here thought it was 100, but I just checked the manual).
I am using a PRX618S-XLF which is crossed over at 90Hz which I really like with the DSR's which appear to really thrive on the additional LF output at this frequency; however, you most surely will be running out of bottom long before you run out of tops on your subs.
It is easy to try this, and it is a much easier setup. Run everything into both subs and tops and let the cross-over in the subs do all the work. Balance the low to the highs with the input knobs on the subs and tops and always set them there.
I think you will find this is a very good sounding setup.
If I had an external cross-over and the Mackie subs, I would likely pick 90Hz with the DSR's vs 125Hz, but I have a feeling that the difference may not be very big anyway.
