    I've got a pile of Crown equipment.
    A ps2 Pre-Amp
    2 FFX2 active crossovers
    A Ma 2400 to power two MaCualey 18" subs
    A MA 1200 to power two Klipsch RF-7's
    A MA 600 For the center channel
    And another MA 600 for the rear.
    The problem is I don't know how to merge this equipment into a home theather system. The local "experts" tell me I need a $7000 Mac processor. It seems like there should be a better/ Less pricey way.

    Oh, I was expecting at least one of those responses.
    As soon as your check clears it's all yours.

    All you need is a regular home theater receiver [I[]that has pre-amp outputs for all channels[/i]. Those can be had for probably well under $1000.

    You won’t be needingthe pre-amp.

    One of the crossovers (or both, if they’re mono) will connect between the receiver’s L/R pre-outputs and the 1200 and 2400 amps. If the crossovers are stereo, you won’t need them both.

    It looks like you’re lacking amps and speakers for the rear channels, as well as a center channel speaker. The amps in the receiver can drive the rear speakers in the meantime – or indefinitely.

    Also, if those are pro audio subs, you might want to consider trading them for some better suited for home theater. Most pro audio subs don’t have any appreciable extension below 35-40Hz.

    Lacking amps for the rear and center?
    I've got an MA 600 for the RC-7 center speaker
    and a MA 600 for the rears. Which is now a set of Bose soon to be replaced.
    The Subs are home built 13cu/ft sono subs, with McCauley 6174's
    So, if I go with a reciever with enough pre-amp outs, what is a good choice?
    The sales guy said to pick anything that had enough pre-amp outputs.

    You've got a ton of options. Look at features on Marantz, Pioneer Elite, Yamaha, Denon, etc etc models.
