Crown's XLS 2000 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 power amp provides enormous power and flexibility thanks to the integrated DriveCore Technology, PureBand Crossover System and Peakx limiters. Weighing less than 12 pounds, the Crown XLS2000 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 developing this technology resulting in truly remarkable benefits. The DriveCore Technology in this Crown 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 XLS2000 power amplifier 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

This advanced power supply in the Crown XLS2000 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 Crown 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 provide 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 Crown power amp's 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.

Comments about Crown XLS2000 DriveCore Series Power Amp:

I have bought 3 out of 4 in the series. I have the xls1000, xls1500, and xls2000. I love them all for their own reasons. The Xls2000 has tons of power for just about any application. I am going to buy the 2500 before new years on sale so I have them all!!! Love them Hazy

Good Amp - Lightweight!

By Rick Quinonez

from Ausin, Texas

Comments about Crown XLS2000 DriveCore Series Power Amp:

I bought the XLS2000 amp to replace an XLS1000 to give a little more headroom. I run it in stereo so have not used it in bridged mode or used the crossover, but it is nice to have these features. I use it to drive 4 FOH main speakers. I've run the amp at 2 ohms per channel all night long at about 3/4 volume and it doesn't break a sweat of even come close to clipping. Makes the rack much lighter as well. Good price for the amp and even better if you catch it on sale!
