Crown Audio Redefines The Price/Performance Ratio In Portable PA Amplifier With 2-Ohm/Channel XLS Series
Category-Leading XLS Series Matches Price, 2-Ohm Power Rating, Sonic Integrity And Robust Construction Meaning Serious Audio Professionals Should Accept No Less!
With More Watts Per Dollar Than Any Other Amplifier In Its Class, The New Crown XLS 5000 Eliminates Sub-2-Ohm Amplifiers As Serious Contenders For Any Audio Pro!
LAS VEGAS, Nevada – In a move that makes quality high power amplifiers affordable to a broad new market, Crown Audio today showcased the newly extended XLS Series amplifiers that significantly elevate the performance threshold of affordable portable PA amplifiers. Comprising the XLS 202, XLS 402, XLS 602, XLS 802 and the brand new XLS 5000, the XLS Series is ideal for musicians, DJs, rental companies and corporate and hotel AV departments.
â€?Providing more watts per dollar than any other amplifier in its class, the XLS5000 represents a tremendous value to end users who need a high power amplifier without the big price tag,â€? noted Marc Kellom, Vice President of Marketing, Crown Audio. â€œBy pairing this amplifier up with JBLâ€™s MRX, SRX, or VRX loudspeaker enclosures, our customers can now have access to a highly professional yet economical all-Harman solution.â€?
The XLS Series, Crownâ€™s workhorse amplifier line, has now been extended with the addition of the new XLS 5000 ($1,399 US street price). Delivering 1,800 watts per channel in 4-ohm stereo mode, and a staggering 5,000 watts in 4-ohm bridge-mono mode, the XLS 5000 packs more than twice the punch of the next highest-powered model in the range, the XLS 802.
Housed in a rugged, 3U, all-steel chassis, the highly reliable XLS 5000 is equipped with an efficient forced-air fan to prevent excessive thermal buildup. The front panel sports dual precision-detented rotary level controls, a power switch with accompanying LED, and six additional LEDs indicating signal, clip, and fault for each channel. Rear panel connections include two electronically balanced XLR inputs as well as touch-proof binding post and SpeakonÂ® outputs.
The XLS 5000 also employs extensive protection and diagnostics capabilities, including output current limiting, DC protection, circuit breaker, and special thermal protection of the unitâ€™s transformers.
Like the rest of the XLS Series, as well as all other Crown amplifiers, the new XLS 5000 is backed by the manufacturerâ€™s industry-exclusive Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty.
