Crest Audio Pro-LITE Series

Crest Audio Pro-LITE Series

June 15, 2011, ORLANDO, Fla. (InfoComm exhibit #1001) — Crest Audio® proudly announces the Pro-LITE™ 3.0 and Pro-LITE 3.0 DSP power amplifiers, featuring an incredibly lightweight, efficient design with high power and stable performance into 2-ohm loads.

Crest Audio Pro-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 Pro-LITE 3.0 and Pro-LITE 3.0 DSP boast 870 watts per channel at 4 ohms stereo (up to 3,150 watts bridged @ 4 ohms), weigh 13.3 lbs., and 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 and at 2-ohm operation.

The Crest Audio Pro-LITE 3.0 DSP features an onboard digital signal processor that hosts a suite of delays (0-120ms per channel), adjustable crossovers, adjustable limiters, parametric EQ, HF driver EQ, four user preset storage locations, and stereo/mono 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 Pro-LITE DSP section also integrates Waves® MaxxBass® Bass Extension technology, which uses psycho-acoustics to create precise harmonics that give the perceived effect of boosting low frequencies in the mix. The level of MaxxBass effect can be adjusted from 0% to 100%.

Crest Audio Pro-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 previously announced Crest Audio Pro-LITE 2.0 and Pro LITE 2.0 DSP power amplifiers boast the same features at a weight of 11.6 lbs. with power ratings of 985W per channel at 2 ohms; 540W per channel at 4 ohms; 280W per channel at 8 ohms; and 1,970W bridged at 4 ohms.

The Crest Audio Pro-LITE 3.0 and Pro-LITE 3.0 DSP will be available in Q4 2011 from authorized Crest Audio dealers.
