    Default passive and active mix

    Well before my new SRM450 Mk3`s are delivered , can I use my passive subs as well..
    From mixer to Citronic Crossover , output from crossover to SRM450 input , and sub out on Crossover to sub amp and then to sub`s.

    Cheers

    Yep that should be fine. You might need to adjust the crossover frequency - the mackies will likely sound a little different to your passive tops.

    Something to note about the mackies is their input level control. Anything up to half way (12 o clock) is line level & after that is mic level. It likely won't sound clipped but you could end up running it into the limiter which has a tendency to increase the overall average power & this can be a large factor when drivers overheat.

    In all the times I used srm450s if they were flipping loud I never once saw the glimmer of the limit LED coming on.
