Look on EBay for Crown DCI 4-300N. There’s one on there right now listed for an opening bid at $850. Or if you want more power/headroom, there’s a DCI 4-600N for the same price.

JBL specs the crown dci’s for some of their high end theater speakers. They have their own dsp setting file for them, of course.

I love my analog dci’s, haven’t used the network versions though.

A minidsp and any high quality pro amp would be another option.

Then you're not going to need anything remotely like 300W, even in a PA in a much larger room than anybody but an oligarch can afford.
All you'll end up doing is running into noise problems.


Also what 107dB driver handles 300W?

Yeah, I'd just looked it up myself. My DE25s in the Unitys are similar sensitivity and I doubt that even with EQ I've hit 20W into them at deafening levels. I use a 50W/ch amp for the HF.
