    I would try both to see what sounds best to your ears. Also, try them bridged especially the PPI running 150 x 2 non bi-amped or bi-amped powering just the mids and the Coustic 50w x 2 on the tweets.

    Bi-amp with the PPI. This will give you the most flexibility in tuning the tweeters independently of the mids.
