Dear Gmorris: As you point out a different sub's integration with different trade-offs ( advantages/dis-advantages ).
I prefer to lower the IMD on the main speakers in favor of an improve in the quality performance on the main speakers and to handle the low bass with a dedicated speaker ( sub s) that was designed in specific to that frequency range along its self-powered amplifier.
IMHO no full range passive speaker ( like the great Alxandria's. ) can show/even the quality performance in the bass range like a dedicated self powered sub, the right sub and at the same time I don't know any amplifier ( SS/tube/hybrid. ) that can even the matching between the driver ( woofer ) and the amplifier in the sub's that was designed to the specific needs of that woofer for that specific frequency bass range, synergy is the name of the game.
The key is the quality of the crossover that in Velodyne, Revel, and the like are very " decent ".
The ideal " key " is to make directly the crossover high-pass filter at the main ( internally ) speaker amplifier(s) and if you can't do it then through the sub's own crossover.
The choice of the sub's model is a critical subject, not all the sub's are the same and not all the sub's have the same quality performance and the same quality " self " electronics specially its crossover.
I prefer too the use of the same amplifier in the main speakers, the right amplifier.
When we use two different amplifiers ( like in your system ) IMHO we have two different performances due to the diferences between these two amplifiers: different output impedance, different frequency response, different THD, different gain, different slew rate, different colorations,...different noise level,....different.....diferent..., etc, etc, the only and almost the one similarity between both units is its name: amplifier.
I know that you like it and this is the important factor because is you who are living each day with that system.
I respect your approach, however the targets and its quality level that you achieve are totally different from the targets and quality levels that we achieve trough the alternative that I support.
Regards and enjoy the music.
