I have looked at the manual and did not note anything there but it seems possible though I did not look at the software side of things.

I need a compact all in one unit with DSP for our toyhauler trailer system.

The ICE125 would likely do all I need though would not mind a bit more juice on the sub.

Current setup:
50" smart TV
Harmon Kardon BDS 2 receiver
KEF Uni-q line array speakers
Arc Audio BL12 sub
Arc Audio XDI V2 1100.1 sub amp

New configuration plans:
Same TV
Xbox One with Kinect for my wife's dance workouts, SPDIF optical out to processor
Same speakers
Same sub
Amp(s) options, * means I have the amp on hand
A) ICE125 processor amp if it will work in 2.1 mode

Require outboard DSP with SPDIF/Optica input
B) *Arc XDI 600.4, 150x2, 300x1 (a bit low for the sub)
C) *Arc XDI 1100.5, 150x2 300x2, 500x1 (additional 150x2 for speakers in garage or 300x2 for KEF's, a bit overkill)
D) Arc XDI 450.4, 125x2 bridged And *1100.1, 1000x1 for sub
E) *Arc XDI 600.4, and 1100.1

I have the 1100.1 installed but not used yet, upgraded from 500x1 H class that just did not seem adequate so adding a 450.4 or 600.4 for the mains would be easy.

12 volt would be better as I have not worked out the solar/inverter system design yet and could save a bit with a smaller inverter.

I will take a look at the amp modules as well to see what is offered.

This is what the system is going into, full time RV, street/track car in the back, audio/video higher end systems in all three rigs.

@ RAAMaudio

Pretty sweet ride.. :-)
How about doing one PWR-ICE125 for the main + 1 x PWR-ICE250 for the sub. Providing you feed them a digital input (e.g. SPDIF) You can link them up using the Digital line and this way they are just in series. Just configure one as Stereo and one as BTL (bridge for the SUB). You should be all set for system.

I am a bit under the weather and misread the info, thanks for straightening me out:)

I think it best to stay with a 12 volt solution after looking at the cost of the bigger pure sine wave inverter I would have to buy, good ones are nuts price wise.

I have great amps and a processor I can use and the cost is not much different so I may as well run them.

Thanks for the prompt reply, very much appreciated.

Sincerely
Rick
