L7 plus pxe-h660 question

The speaker level inputs to the h660 seem fairly limited. It looks like it will accept four channels (no rear channel capability), so no way you could connect all L7 channels post-amplifier. I'm thinking perhaps though the front LR plus the under seat woofer LR will yield a 20hz-20khz signal. It would be highly equalized I'm sure, but the h660 magic box is supposed to be able to adjust for that. Has anybody tried this?

If you live near Portland

You need to go visit these guys

adding more than a subwoofer on top of an amp output
just seems wrong to me.

the mobridge da2 will interface with L7 head unit
and give you analog preouts and is suppose to retain
the L7 functions to.

I had an h650 hooked up like that and it worked fine. Unfortunately I could never get the unit to sound good.

That's what I was afraid of. sigh. looks like recode to hifi then. An additional step that I had hoped to avoid.

The 660 doesn't sum internally. I haven't tried it. I think it's disco'd for 2013. I have used the CleanSweep with the highpass in the F inputs and the lowpass in the rear inputs - if you're not trying to shift the stock crossover point, summing isn't essential.
