An L-Pad costs a lot less than an amp. :mrgreen:
And is less precise, less repeatable, can't save and recall settings, limited to one crossover slope.on the internal crossover...

Biampd cabs are better, but not simpler or cheaper.
99% of the time, things that aren't already being done aren't being done because they don't work. The other 1% is split evenly between fools and geniuses.

Thanks for all,

I will use NSDs because I have 4 in my drawer.

I have forgotten that performance is down because of the 16 ohm load. :wall:

I have enough amplifiers for a three-way system, but if you don't have a significant positive effect, it doesn't make sense.
Simplicity is a higher priority for me, especially if I can't win anything.
