    I am building a 7.1 system, and my front 3 speakers will be semi-active bi-amped (2 way with passive XO and a bass module for each with an active XO at 250 Hz). I have a Crown macrotech 2402 to power the left and right bass modules (10" Lambda driver in a 2.75' sealed box). I'm looking for a good choice for a monoblock or bridgeable to mono amp that will match the specs on the Crown for the center bass channel.
    Should be 300-600 watts and < $700. I also have a dedicated sub, so these are only covering strongly down to 30-40Hz (30 when listening to music, 40 for HT). Only thing I've seen so far that sparked my interest was the old Adcom GFA-565.
    Any other ideas? The crown has pretty good specs and I'd like to keep it in the same league, without spending $1200 for a smaller Crown 602. Fans are OK, amps will be in a noise damped, ventilated enclosure.
    Thanks.
