Second, I would suggest you post a new topic on the DBX forum, it is very active with lots of knowledgable people such as "DRA" and "Gadget", they will answer your question very quickly.
One more thing to consider... I think running the signal through the DRPA and then into the the two amplifiers DSP is wasting sound quality, UNLESS you need a specific feature not available on the amps DSP. The DSP on the i-Tech is of better quality then the DRPA and the one on the XTI is pretty much comparable.
Here is a link to the sub forum you need:

AND DAKOS I'M REALLY JUST GOING AFTER THE BEST SOUND QUALITY,ALSO I LIKE THE AFS OPTION FOR FEEDBACK PROTECTION FROM THE DRPA,AS FAR AS THE DSP ON THE ITECH AND XTI,I HAVE BEEN USING EXTERNAL LIMITERS SHOULD I BYPASS THOSE ALSO IF I DON'T USE THE DRPA?

Using the amps onboard DSPs limiter makes much more sense because the amps DSP knows the real voltage the amp is outputting while the DRPA is only guessing, other than that the limiter on the itech has continuous power limiter like the DRPA has plus a peak limiter.

The drpa is great but when you use the dsp on the itechs i believe the results are super.
I configured my amps it took a while and a lot of tweeting but now the parties or events i play for i use just my 6000 on hi and 8000 for lows and my crowd or even pro djs are amazed of the quality of sound produced from these amps vs. my competitors quantity.
The inputs and outputs stages are never cliping and speakers sound amazing

As for the DRPA, it's true that this unit sound inferior to its bigger brothers starting from the DR260 and up or its cousin the BSS 334T, 336T and the 366T, but this upgrade will cost substantial $$$ and the previous upgrade is relatively free

Don't forget a USB cable so System Architect can see both your amps simultaneously.

Config : audix D6 mic, mackie profx22, 2 electro voice elx 115ps, JBL jrxsp118p, dbx driverack pa+.
Confused about THRU / HPF switch on the JBL sub; the powered tops have switches for use with subs too.
The driverack pa+ does not have the presets for my amps/speakers and will not complete the balancing function.

Another thing is the JRX sub, it's a pretty weak sub for good kick drum reproduction...
Where does the clipping occure?

I would think it's a bit too much to ask from just the one sub tho'.
