AFAIK there is no option to bridge channels of an XPA-5. If you bridge the XPA-2, it is only rated for 8-ohm nominal speakers. Your Studio 100 v2's are 4 ohms or so over much of the midbass region per Stereophile measurements, http://www.stereophile.com/content/p...O36YIpj4GMT.97). Your FL/FR speakers are rated 350 W max, 210 W program, so I think a single XPA-2 for the pair of them would be plenty.

Don, Thank you for the info that a XPA-5 cannot be bridged. I am planning to buy the XPA-7 now. I currently bridge 2 sets of 2 channels on my Adcom GFA-7500 to power my Studio 100s. I will try them with the XPA-7 as well. Once I get my Atmos speakers, then I will decide if I can afford or need the additional XPA-2. I have two 20 amp circuits wired to mt HT cabinet. One was for power and one was for source. I may have to split these amps between the two circuits.
