    I can get these in a trade and I really like the way they sound with a 2001RB head. I really want to use my power amp and a crossover to send lows to the 1x15 and the rest to the 4x10. I'm not sure what the best way to do this is.

    I suppose I'll run the power amp in stereo and send each channel either the lows or highs from the crossover. I'll turn the tweeter all the way off on the 1x15 and tweak the one on the 4x10 until I like it.

    The only problem here is that I'm not going to be sending all that much power to the cabs since I'll be running the amp in stereo. My QSC delivers 1400W when bridged @ 4 ohms, but only delivers 280 W / channel @ 8 ohms in stereo.

    So, what should I do here?

    why don't you want to run it in full range? (edit- not having a dig, just wondering...)

    +1 run it full range. If you biamp, the lows get MOST of the power, so you wouldn't want most of your power going through a single speaker, while having a big 4x10 getting virtually nothing. That's just crazy talk.

    +100. It would take four 1x15s to make it even semi-worthwhile bi-amping along with a 4x10. And reconsider the 1x15. Even run full range it takes two 1x15s to keep up with a 4x10. Two 4x10s will work better.
