Specialized Solutions For Specialized Applications Make Crown Audio The Go-To Amplifier Supplier For Integrators Serving The Retail, Hospitality, Health-Club & Spa, Education, Industrial And Even Worship Markets;

Sonic Performance, System Reliability And Ease Of Use The Hallmark Of Crown’s Commercial Market Offerings.

Recognizing the need to support contractors in the commercial sound marketplace with highly robust, sonically superior amplifiers, specifically engineered for the commercial marketplace, Crown Audio today debuted the new high-value 135MA and 160MA mixer-amplifiers. Capable of providing both eight-ohm and constant-voltage outputs (70V and 100V), the 135MA and 160MA are easily configurable for a variety of uses, including paging, background music, music-on-hold, security use, and safety/evacuation announcements.

Each housed in a highly compact half-rack-space chassis, the 135MA is equipped with three inputs and a 35W amplifier output, while the 160MA provides four inputs and a 60W amplifier output. Both models provide priority muting, which can be voice-activated or triggered via an external switch, and are compatible with microphones requiring phantom power.

“As much as we are audiophile purists here at Crown Audio, we recognize that our new 135MA and 160MA are business tools: tools that allow the integrator to provide a better sound system for the money and tools that enhance the atmospherics of any commercial or industrial environment,? explained Phil McPhee, Crown Audio, Market Manager, Commercial Sound. “As such, the new 135MA and 160MA deliver legendary Crown sound, matched with bullet-proof reliability, unmatched system security and highly intuitive ease of use! Consider these advantages with our three-year, no-fault warranty and it’s easy to understand why Crown makes good business sense.?

The front panel of each model comprises a rotary input volume knob and green signal/clip LED for every channel, rotary output volume knob with green (signal) and red (clip) LEDs, recessed pots for bass and treble adjustment, and a power switch with accompanying blue LED. The back panel includes a balanced Phoenix-type mic/line input with threshold control, several line-level RCA input jack pairs (two for 135MA, three for 160MA), a telephone/MOH output with level control, a preamp output, screw-terminal speaker outputs, and a detachable IEC power cord. A DIP switch panel is also provided for fast, easy configuration.

Convection cooled, the new mixer-amplifiers feature sophisticated protection mechanisms, including current limiting, over-temperature thermal cutout, and DC-fault load protection. The units are also protected against turn-on/turn-off “thumps.?

The 135MA and 160MA are ideal for a wide array of commercial applications from restaurants, retail stores, factories, offices, fitness facilities and also schools, hospitals, houses of worship and a host of other environments.
