Well it depends on what you mean by '4 way', as in your example above you seem to link the number of amps directly to the number of 'ways' the system is.  6 or 7 amps would not make your system '6 way'
 
My rig is 5 way but runs off 3 amps mostly.  Subs off 1 amp, kicks off another amp, mids off ch1 of amp 3, tops and supertweeters (passively crossed) off ch2 of amp 3.


So you and your public hear music in mono??? Works goog? I think you lose lot of things (it depends of the kind of music/live to play...)

What speakers are connected to your amplifiers aperrado?

If the amps are all driving the same frequecy band, your question has been answered earlier in the thread. You take the signal from the mixer to amp 1, then use amp 1's signal link/out socket to link it to amp 2 and so on (or use a Y cable / splitter box if your amp has no link out socket).

If your amplifiers are driving different frequency bands (eg subs mid tops) you need an active crossover.

and a pair bass double 18'swith a peavey cs-3000 I use a peavey kosmos for the bass

Ideally you need an active crossover to split the signal into bass to send to your peavey cs-3000, and mid / top to the two amps driving your jrx-125's.

Mixer > crossover > amplifiers > speakers

The type of thing you need is something like a Rane AC22 or AC23, or one of the Behringer CX models. There are other brands to choose from too, these are just examples.

At the moment all you can do is link the inputs of each amplifier, which means you are sending a full range signal to your subs - they won't sound their best like this.

Mixer > amp 1 > amp 2 > amp 3

Linking amplifier inputs is described by Norty back on page one of this thread. All of your amps have several inputs per channel, so you put signal into one (eg XLR) and connect another (e.g. barrier strip) to the next amp in the chain.

No.

Input 1 and 2 are two separate channels on your amp and are not linked inside the box. Connecting your sub signal to input 1 will not make it appear at input 2 of the same amp.

You have two inputs per channel on the amp you linked to a picture of (1 XLR, 1 jack). They ARE linked inside the box.


Actually, with the EP amps, if you run in parallel mode the ch2 inputs do function as outputs for linking out. See page 6 of the manual.
