CREST AUDIO® LAUNCHES E-LITE™ SERIES AMPLIFIERS

Crest Audio E-Lite 1800

Crest Audio E-Lite Series power amplifiers debuts at InfoComm 2010

June 5, 2010, Las Vegas, NV. (InfoComm 2010 exhibit #C6602)—Crest Audio® proudly debuts the E-Lite™ Series power amplifiers with the E-Lite™ 1800 & 3000 and E-Lite™ 1800 DSP & 3000 DSP. The E-Lite™ series features incredibly lightweight, efficient design with high power and stable performance down to 2-ohm loads.

Crest Audio® E-Lite™ Series amps are built on an advanced, high-speed class D design with a switch-mode power supply that reduces weight while increasing reliability, thermal efficiency and output power. The E-Lite™ 1800 and E-Lite™ 1800 DSP boast 900 watts per channel, and the E-Lite™ 3000 and E-Lite™ 3000 DSP boast 1500 watts per channel and both versions weigh less than 10 lbs. These amplifiers deliver rock-solid performance in parallel, stereo and bridged modes. The robust power supply allows these amplifiers to deliver consistent, stable performance with low frequencies down to 2-ohm operation.

The Crest Audio® E-Lite™ DSP version features an onboard digital signal processor that hosts a suite of delays (0-120ms per channel), adjustable crossover, adjustable limiter, parametric EQ, HF driver EQ, 4 user preset storage locations, and stereo/mono/bridge operation with lockable security settings. The front-panel LCD screen allows users to quickly identify and assign presets, while the USB port allows users to load presets and enables external setup and adjustment.

The E-Lite™ DSP section also integrates Waves® MaxxBass® Bass Extension technology, which uses psycho-acoustics to create precise harmonic overtones that give the perceived effect of adding low frequencies to the mix. The level of MaxxBass® can be adjusted from 0% to 100%.

Crest Audio® E-Lite™ Series amplifiers feature two channels with channel-independent, fourth order 100 Hz crossovers housed in a steel chassis. The proprietary ACL™ Automatic Clip Limiting circuitry prevents the amplifier from sending potentially damaging clipped signals to the loudspeakers. Additional onboard protection circuitry includes DC, Temp, Signal and Active safeguards, all referenced on the front panel with LED indicators.

The Crest Audio® is taking orders for the E-Lite™ series, which will be available in Q3, 2010 from authorized Crest Audio® retailers.
