I putting a 5.1 setup in my new apartment. I would like to only need one amplifier but my rears will not be able to handle as much as the front 3 speakers. The rears will be in-ceiling (estimated 6 inch) with LSi15s and a LSiC in front with DSW microPRO 2000. I am leaning toward an XPA-5 but have some questions:
Will the amp power the front 4 ohm speakers and rear 8 ohm speakers with no issues? What will be the XPA's wpc if this is the case? Also, what in-ceiling speakers(up to $800/pair) will mesh well in this setup?
Any knowledge and suggestions are greatly appreciated. This forum is teaching me a ton about audio and making me realize how little I knew in the first place. Thanks guys (especially Tom from Charlotte).
