A few things first... I need to know what type of space you're building this rig for? What type of music and for how many people?

You are almost correct in your calculations, it's 2.33 ohms and not 1.33 but the rest is correct.

Just a few quick pointers, there's no sense putting both the 115 and the 415 in the same space. You'll just end up with less quality then any by operating just one of them.

Group all the subs that you're actually powering together.

Short all the speakers and subs that you don't power and put them far from the sub stack or they will gobble your low end.

Either the DRPA+ or the 223 are not needed.

You need one amp channel per frequency range so I don't see how you'll be able to accomplish this using 4 pole connectors, Also I have seen many mistakes done creating those "special" cables, that just complicates things. One more reason to go with the plain solution is redundancy, if you use plain speaker cables and something gets messed up (it always does when you least expect it), all you need to do is grab the regular spare cable you will prepare for those events and replace the faulty cable because they are all the same.

All amps get the full range signal from the console. Every DSP cuts the frequency as needed by the speakers connected to it. The only signal that gets summed is in the subwoofer amp. you should first try to group all the subs in one place, don't separate them to left and right channels, that separation is only good for the top speakers.

What you have are pretty powerful speakers, you can connect them to one XTi, it will work, but there's no sense doing that unless that's gear you already own. For these speakers to shine they need i-Tech amps pushing them.

What you need to do to connect them to one XTi is take both subs and connect them to one channel, let's say channel one. Then connect the tops in parallel to channel two. Now you need to connect the amp to a laptop loaded with Audio Architect via the USB connector and configure the active crossover points you want.

By doing it like this you'll lose the stereo signal and have only mono. for this to work in stereo you need one more amp. for you to do stereo bi amp for this configuration you need two more amps.

It sounds like your USBX is faulty, duo you have another one to switch and test it? How many XTi's do you have connected to the USBX?

No, just for iOS :(

Your only solution is to use VNC on your android connected to a computer with SA or AA.
