Crown XLS-2502 DriveCore 2 775W Stereo Power AmplifierDetails
The Crown XLS-2502 DriveCore 2 Power Amplifier is a versatile and reliable stereo power amplifier delivering 775W per channel in a convenient 2U rackmount chassis. Offering a host of upgraded features including more flexible DSP band pass filtering, selectable input sensitivity, remote power trigger operation and sleek new styling, the XLS-2502 is perfect for a wide range of live, portable PA and installed sound applications.
Crown XLS DriveCore 2 amplifiers now offer a bandpass filter on each channel in addition to the previous low and high pass filters, enabling more precise DSP crossover tuning, loudspeaker matching and system EQ capability. All models allow the front-panel LED indicators (except the clip and thermal indicators) to be turned off if desired, reducing distraction in dark venues. All the amplifiers have selectable input sensitivity of either 1.4 Vrms or .775 Vrms, facilitating their use in a wider variety of applications and enabling the amplifiers to be driven at full power.
XLS DriveCore 2 amplifiers now offer a remote power trigger function, to turn the amp on and off from a distance. The amplifiers also feature a display sleep mode that turns the display lighting off after a specified time. All models provide a security setting that disables the front-panel menu buttons; the menu is locked and unlocked by entering a simple button combination. In addition, a system reset function enables all factory settings to be restored.
The XLS-2502 incorporates Crown's proprietary DriveCore Class D amplifier design, which is the size of a postage stamp yet combines the amplifier driver stage into the power output stage along with additional audio-signal functions to provide remarkably efficient, cool-running operation that conforms to HARMAN International's GreenEdge™ environmental initiative.
Crown XLS DriveCore 2 amplifiers can power 8- 4- or 2-ohm loads and can be bridged for 8- or 4-ohm mono operation. Additional features include Peakx™ limiters that deliver maximum output while protecting the speakers; balanced XLR, 1/4-inch and RCA inputs; touch proof binding post and Speakon® outputs and more.
