Hi everyone I need a little help.

I have bought 4 crossovers and 1 amp.:
2 x 400w 6-8 ohms, 1 bass, 1 middle. (for bass. 1 x 15' speaker)
2 x 300w 4-8 ohms, 2 bass, 1 middle. (for middle, 1 x 12' speaker and 1 x tweet)
1 x 150w Peavey XM 6 Series 300 EH minimum amplifier loads 4 ohms. (2 output)

so this is what I'm thinking to do:
Amp ----> 400w crossover + bridge + 300w crossover (same setup with the other amp output)

Can I power up the 400w crossover with this amp and make a bridge for the 300w crossover, or I need to change my amp to another more powerful if this is the case, can you recommend one, or give required specs?

any tip/comment would be appreciated :)
 
Hookup depends on the crossover frequencies.
Amp to 400w xover input
bass out to 15' woofer
middle out to input of 300w xover
300w xover bass out to 12"
middle out to tweeter
This arrangement removes some bass from the 12" allowing it to play louder.
OR
Amp out 1 to 400w xover
Amp out 2 to 300w xover
which plays the 12" full range
You can try it both ways to see which way works better for you.
Whether the amp is sufficient will depend on the efficiency of the speakers in the cabinets and the power handling of the speakers.

Hi americanaudiophile, thanks for your help, I really appreciate it :)

I've been thinking same:
Amp out 1 ---> 400w bass to bass then middle out to 300W (bass to bass and middle to tweet)
Amp out 2 ---> 400w bass to bass then middle out to 300W (bass to bass and middle to tweet)

but, can the 400W xover handle the 300W through the middle output without problem?
