I like the do that, just leave the bridge plate and use the external amps to power the whole speaker. The T2 is around 90dB sensitive if I remember correctly, ~100W should get you reference peaks. Just leave the center powered by the Denon. Also, I believe you can send the power amp back to Emotiva and pay to add a third power module, making it the XPA-3 Gen3. I also don’t even know if you can do that, I think the receiver would stop powering the built-in speaker connection if you use the pre-out.
