A ultradrive has 3 inputs and 6 outputs, so If you're going four way you'll need two of them.

Or you should consider buying a DBX or so with 8 outputs.

Reasonable 8 output DSP would be Xilica XP-4080

Ultradrive would work with mono sub, mono kick and stereo midtops, that's the way I'm usually running it, its routing makes it possible, something that is not possible with DBX Driverack PA+ for example.

MTH30 will probably sound quite bad doing mid/kick bass only. It is not designed for it. HD15, USB or ES18 would be the preferred ones for kick. HD15 being the smallest with smallest driver would generally be "fastest" and drop off highest, while USB is in the middle and many describe it being perhaps best sounding out of three with sufficient SPL for just about anything. In stacks it can be used without sub in most cases (excluding dub/dubstep/dnb naturally). ES18BPH is largest, drops lowest and can be used without sub, a bit like more hi-fi version of 1850 what it comes to frequency range.

Letting your pe-amp determine what bins you build is backwards. Don't compromise the speakers, look at other options for xovers

Or go reflex 15's for now, then have the option of putting them in horns later.

most preamp builders can change the x-over frequencies of their machine, maybe try to contact yours, otherwise some sounds take the main output of the pre and run it through a lms / xover
