Ok, heres specs of my setup so far:

I'm running a set of Pioneer TS-C720PRS
Watts MAX. Music Power 200 Watts
Watts Nominal Power Handling 50 Watts
Frequency Response 25Hz ~ 32kHz
Sensitivity (1W/1m) 88dB
Ohm Rating 4 ohm

Driven by an Xtant x604
Number of Channels 4
Watts per Channel 4 Ohm 4 x 75
Watts per channel 2 Ohm 4 x 150
Bridged Mono at 4 Ohm 2 x 300

I want to complete a really nice front stage... I decided to go with the pioneers because of rave reviews... What would be the best direction to go in to utilize the 2 leftover channels?

Bridge the rear channels to a sub and if you think you need rear-fill, use the passive outputs on the amp. It can take it! If you search long enough, you can find all of the accessories to tune to your liking.

Why don't you go active and use all four channels? Most comp sets will sound much better active. If you want to stay passive then bridge your amp so that you have more power because the crossovers are taking some of the power.

So it seems as if the general consensus is to bridge the amp, and pump 300 watts to each set. I just didn't want to run the risk of damaging the speakers running them more than their RMS

One reason to run that amp bridged is that it is stiffly regulated and so has zero dB of headroom...
What do you mean dB of headroom?
