  1. Hi There, So the MRX are rated at 600 watts, you do not need to run the XTI 4000 bridge mono. Running the XTI into a 2 OHM Bridge load is only going to lead to the amplifier overheating. The XTI 4000 is rated at 1200 watts at 4 ohms per channel, more than sufficient for one MRX518 per channel. So i would run one sub off each channel, and Y the inputs if you want to use a mono Sub. The XTI has a built in crossover, so you can use that. What you should do when you set it up though is adjust the gain structure so the signal in and out match. Use band manager or system architect to set the amplifier up. As you are crossing over the signal, there will be a lot less going out than coming in. So once you have set the crossover (start at 30HZ LR24 and 100HZ LR24) play some music and move the crossover gain up until the Input and output meter are similar. You will now have maximum gain through the amplifier. A driverack PA will allow more limiter settings to be set, and will allow more control and EQ of the EON Speakers if you want to cross those over at 100HZ. I think if you do the above for your subs you will find there will be more than enough sub! Let us know how you get on. Rob

  3. I have 2 15' EON tops and a pair of MRX 518 sub's. I am a DJ I go from my Rane mixer to a Mackie board. From the Mackie to my Crown 4000XTI. The problem is I have been running in brg mono mode and I find the bass to be lacking. I believe the mistake in this is that the sub's are rated at 4ohm in mono each sub is only seeing 1 ohm. My question is 1) would I be better served running in stereo and 2) is it imperative that I purchase a xover to get more from my rig the dbx pa has been suggested. Please advise
