1 pair for tweeters
1 pairs for mids
1 pair for underseats

In network mode of HU, you will get three pairs of RCA (low / mid / high) and you can control all sort of attributes from your HU.

If you are going down the HU + Bit one route, then you would require 4 channel amp.
2 channels for front mids and tweeter via passive xover
2 channels for underseats

XD 600/6 can still work in this scenario. you can bridge channel 3&4 and 5&6 for your underseats.

You will still require lots of tweaking / adjusting / readjusting on bit one though.

Referring to underseats, what pioneer under seats are you considering?
These are the Pioneers. Have a mounting depth of 2.5"(63.5mm) I think the max for the underseat is 54mm if i'm not mistaken , but I believe that mounting plates/spacers can over come this as we are only talking 1cm difference.

So, what advantages do you gain from an active system over passive, generally speaking.

EDIT: ignore that, i've found a great write up on passive and active.

Thanks for sticking with this
