I agree with Nathan, I think the 215's are better at everything - EXCEPT - for those that have a very well treated and large room. In that case you might run into limits of the 215 if you like to...

A minidsp or an inuke with dsp would be great. The inuke 6000 dsp will give significantly more headroom than the 3000 dsp, I'm using the 3000 dsp though since 99 percent of the time the output is...

Yeah that is pretty narrow but I bet you can make it work. Make sure you have a way to eq the bass on the 215's to your liking when running them full range.

Yeah, I love the dynamic eq function for the crowsons too, another reason why the inuke 3000dsp is a perfect match.
