      Crown XLS1000 DriveCore Series Power Amp (105803787)
Availability:  


Weighing in under 9lb., the Crown XLS provides tremendous power in a lightweight, portable, and affordable power amp.

Crown's XLS1000 power amplifier is a premiere portable PA system with unmatched performance, technology, and affordability. It includes multiple inputs so you can plug in anything and play anywhere, along with several system setup configurations. This high-performance Crown power amp provides enormous power and flexibility thanks to the integrated DriveCore Technology, PureBand Crossover System and Peakx limiters. Weighing less than 9 pounds, The Crown XLS1000 power amp is much easier to set up and move from show to show.

A Power Amp with Integrated DriveCore Technology
Class D amplifiers are notable for extraordinarily high efficiency and being well suited for driving difficult reactive loads such as subwoofers. However, their performance can suffer impaired performance on marginal and unstable AC line supplies. To overcome this obstacle, Crown engineers developed DriveCore Technology—a proprietary hybrid analog-digital integrated circuit (IC) developed with Texas Instruments that drives the "front end" of the Class D output stage. Over 60 years of Crown's design knowledge and experience went into the development of this technology resulting in truly remarkable benefits. The DriveCore Technology incorporated in the Crown XLS1000 power amp provides an extremely wide tolerance with regards to sagging or "dirty" AC line conditions, providing consistent performance without affecting audio quality. This means the Crown power amp will not compromise your performance by fluctuating generator power, or overload from lighting rigs, backline gear, etc.

In addition, DriveCore Technology's patented feedback and PWM modulation circuits enable fast recovery on peak transients, accurate reproduction of low-level detail, and precise tracking of low-frequencies at high power levels for maximum subwoofer output.

Advanced Switched-Mode Power Supply
The advanced power supply in the Crown power amp is highly efficient and optimized for maximum power transfer from the AC line through the Class D output stage to the loudspeakers. A benefit to this is substantial weight reduction when compared to older 60Hz transformer-based power supplies.

PureBand Crossover System
The PureBand Crossover System in the XLS Series adds an enormous amount of flexibility and performance to any system. With this system, the crossover frequency is completely variable allowing the choice of any crossover point between 50Hz and 3kHz on 1/12 octave centers. The use of 4th order Linkwitz-Riley filters provides steep slopes for a seamless transition between high and low drivers. And with four crossover modes to choose from providing the ultimate in flexibility, all of your system needs are covered.

Peakx limiters
Peakx limiters provide the ultimate in performance and protection for your entire system. This advanced algorithm was specifically developed and tuned to work with this amplifier and power-supply to achieve higher SPL will less audible artifacts. This means less distortion, less shutdowns, and maximum safe power delivered to your speakers. The Peakx limiters can be easily turned on or off by channel right from the front panel eliminating the need to be digging around in the back of the dark rack.

    Integrated PureBand Crossover System for better performance and control
    Peakx Limiters provide maximum output while protecting your speakers

  • Crisp & Clear

    As reviewed by Diego on 1/12/2011

    Ive had this amp for about 5 months, ive beaten on this amp, runs smoothly NEVER has it heated up alot on me even after 6 hours of continous playback time.The bass sounds so rich and highs so clear. The screen display is easy to read along wit the buttons to scroll between its unbelievably flexible settings. Crown has put there best work in these amps. With the integrated crossover , it makes my gigs a true work of art. Had a cerwin vega amp that heated up on me, not the Crown. Definitely recommended. 5 Stars. Great for the money you will pay.

  • Only 1 week, but pleased

    As reviewed by Joshua Horne on 2/6/2012

    This amp is being used in my home theater setup to drive some hungry EMPtek E55ti towers. So far it is performing flawlessly. We watched a few movies last night (Columbiana, Drive) and it really pushed the speakers well. I don't even have it at max volume and it's running strong. Will update if anything changes.
