ok so i'm not sure if this is the correct spot to post this..

i have a crown xti 2000 amp and have a couple questions...
1 it appears to only let me run one channel at a time not in bridged mode what could be causing this?
2 i have 2 yamaha speaker model s4115H II or #2 they allow for bi wiring or i can send signal to only the low end or top end my question is how would i properly set up the crown xti 2000 to run them on the low end

the nominal impedance is 8 ohms
max 480 watts
program 240 watts
noise 120

the HPF fc is 1.5khz 12 db/oct it doesn't state what the low end is... any help would be appreciated

Welcome to our forum,
Do you have regular (speaker + wire to +1 on the speakon connector and speaker - wire to -1 on the speakon) speaker cables or modified? Did you try running with DSP off? Sorry for asking but do you have signal on both channels?

These are your speakers, correct?

From what I found out is they aren't meant to run as bi amped, only full range, you can rewire them for this kind of operation but you would need another amp, I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Also the crossover frequency is 1.6khz.

Let me know which way you want to go...

sorry for he delayed response the speakers i have are identical to those how ever the back of mine looks like this http://postimage.org/image/nd6rx1ven/
i hope i did that right my main goal is to set the amp properly to not blow the speakers as i can only run the amp bridged for some reason thats waay more power then the speakers can handle again any help would be greatly appreciated

Is the DSP on off position? If not then put it on this setting. Are you using normal, unmodified speaker cables?

R U sure? Cause XTI don't have 1/4" plugs, only speakons or banana plugs...

It has banana plugs on amp end and 1/4 on speaker end sorry for the delay Dps is off I have signal on both channels but can only run the amp bridged or only one channel at a time and I've also noticed recently that the amp shuts down signal to the speakers after turnin the amp off and back only works again I'm starting to think the ribbon cable may be bad but I've check the serial and it isn't listed as having the problem I noticed tonight that the speakers stopped working and after powering it off and back on the speakers were working with the nobs turned down I tapped the front and they stopped then worked after I turned the nobs up and as far as I know I have the current firmware thanks for all suggestions

Signal coming and going like that does sound like the ribbon cable problem, even if it's not that you need to get the amp to a service center.

any idea what this means in band manager error log and how to fix it?

My knowledge in BM is pretty limited although I know my way around a PC so I would guess you either didn't plug in the amp to the USB, you need to download specific XTI device file or you need to reinstall the program or reboot the computer.
Alternatively you may try the harman support forums.
