pure power (XTi 4002)

By sw80, 16/11/2012
The Crown XTi 4002 is a amplifier that has 2 1200 watt amps with 4 Ohms, and it also has 2 1600 watt amps at just 2 ohms. This version of the amplifier will give you all the options you need to set your dsp options and you can have up to 30 presets on this model. That is a major upgrade from previous models from Crown. You will need to have a Windows computer in order to set up your dsp though, this could be a deal break for some folks that done use Windows systems.
The amp is very easy to set up and use, it is one of the best amps I have ever worked with and it even cost less than a thousand dollars which really surprised me. This amp is rackable and it will only take up 2 rack spaces. It has filters and 2 XLR inputs. During the time that I was using this amp it really helped me put some solid low end into my set up that I was using at the time for live use. My other amps just could not bring that kind of power for the low end sound.
The sound that you will get out this amp is powerful, it will really bring your overall set up to life. Everything is very clean with this amp, it is very quiet and makes no noise. I am very happy that I chose to purchase this amp last summer and still use it from time to time though I have moved on to a different set up. The sound quality is second to none, it is very precise and worth every penny. I have tried many models of amps from Crown and JBL and even Shure. This is by far one of the best ones that I have ever used.

Great for your PA system, no matter how big the PA system is! (XLS 1000)

The Crown 1000, is a 1000 watt amp that will deliver maximum power to your speaker chain or PA system. At first I thought this amp was a little over price because it cost over 300 bucks but after hearing how much louder it made our whole PA system I was very happy with it. It can be racked and it will take up two rack spaces. This amp is very easy to understand and use mainly because there is a smaller screen on the front of it that will show all of your options right on it and you can control that screen with the knobs that are right beside it. This amp is easy to use in low lighting situations to change your settings easily.
I have used other Crown amps in this same line (XLS) and to me this line is the best line of amps they have ever come out with because of the quality and build of each individual amp. It also has more features and is easier to use than other models from the past. All of the Crown XLS amps come with a 3 year warranty (hassle free), you can return and get a new one if anything happens to your purchase. This played a huge role in our decision to purchase this amp for our PA system. Just the thought of knowing that we have had or amp for 8 months now and though nothing is wrong with it, we still are covered for over 2 more years!
The Crown 1000 is lightweight and easy to use; it is not overpriced at all (though I thought it was as first). It will deliver great power to any PA system with 1100w at 4 ohms and 700w at 8ohms. It does have a built in fan on the front of the rack to keep good airflow and prevent overheating or damage to the unit.
