What is the difference between the three models?

Primarily, the number of channels - one, two or three. The A500x1 runs in bridged mode and while it will drive a 4 ohm speakers, 8 ohm speakers are recommended.

Which model should I choose?

Generally, the A250x3 is recommended for tri-amped applications, the A250x2 for bi-amped applications, and the A500x1 or A250x2 for full-range passive speakers. If in doubt, ask DEQX for a recommendation for your system and speakers.

Which DEQX models are compatible?

The A250x3 is compatible with the HDP-4 and HDP-5. The A250x2 and A500x1 are compatible with the HDP-4, HDP-5, PreMATE and PreMATE Plus.

Does the on-off trigger work with the PreMATE?

No, the PreMATE (and HDP-4) do not have a 12V trigger output.
