    You definitely want to broadest range out of the head unit to the woofer amp. I think the RA70NSX offers 120Hz as the highest setting on the woofer chnl.

    Its only 200W rms to an 8", thats a good spot. However, the M800/8 is a poor way to go IMO. 1) you end up running all 8 chnl at their minimum load, just to get that 200W from each pair of bridged...
