I have a powering question.
I know the 722's are 4 ohm speakers rating 1200/2400/4800w.
I can't imagine our church ever needing to push them(two 722's) past the 1200w.
Here are the Crown XTi ratings:
XTi 1002= Bridged Mono 1400w @ 4 ohm ($500) X2= $1000
XTi 2002= Bridged Mono 2000w @ 4 ohm ($700) X2= $1400
XTi 4002= Stereo 1200w @ 4 ohm ($900)
XTi 6002= Stereo 2100w @ 4 ohm ($2000)
-Using the XTi 4002 in stereo is the cheapest choice. Would it be enough though? We don't run things very loud. I'm picky with protecting people's hearing including my own.
-Using two XTi 1002 in bridge(one per speaker) would be the next cheapest. But is having 1400w enough and is it worth the trouble of adding ANOTHER power amp to the rig?
Are the XTi 2002 and 6002 setups even worth paying the extra money for?
Plus I haven't mentioned the subs yet.
I like the XTi 4002 in stereo the best even though it barely meets requirements because it saves ALOT of money. But will I regret it?
