From Our Research Team:
Affordable, Quality Crown Amps!Serious performance! Five decades of power amp innovation have been rolled into Crown's impressive new XLS Series of amplifiers. Each amplifiers features flexibility you'll appreciate, including multiple inputs, so you can plug in anything anything and play anywhere. First of all, these beasts each weigh less than 12 lbs. — compared to many 40-lb. competitors — yet they sport integrated crossovers, an advanced switched-mode power supply, and Peak-x limiters to protect your entire system. All in all, engineered to meet the most demanding of audio needs — yet priced to fit comfortably into any gigging band's budget — the XLS Series represents a powerful argument for flexibility, performance, and value.
At the heart of each XLS Series power amplifier — the XLS 1000, the XLS 1500, the XLS 2000, and the XLS 2500 — is the integrated DriveCore technology. Class D amps are known for their high efficiency and for being well suited to drive difficult, reactive loads... such as subwoofers. Yet, one problem Class D amps have is that they can suffer impaired performance when they're being fed by unstable AC lines. To overcome this issue, Crown came up with DriveCore — it's a hybrid analog-digital integrated circuit that provides an extremely wide tolerance of sagging or "dirty" AC line conditions. That means, even if you plug into an unreliable wall outlet, you can enjoy consistent performance without affecting audio quality. In short, demanding equipment like lighting rigs and backline gear won't interfere with the sound — as it should be.
Other features on the XLS 1000 — which you're looking at now — include Crown's PureBand Crossover System. With this system, you can vary the crossover frequency, choosing any point between 50Hz and 3kHz on 1/12 octave centers. And with four crossover modes to choose from, you know your needs will be covered. Finally, the XLS 1000 features Crown's Peak-x limiters to help you achieve higher SPL with less audible artifacts. What it comes down to, is that you'll enjoy less distortion, less shutdowns, and maximum safe power delivered to your important speaker investments.

They sound fantastic at full level thanks to the technology that Crown ha... read more [+]s put into these units and so lightweight at that.
I'm definitely going to buy another one for my subs, and another one for my monitors. This power amp is definitely worth every dollar for your investment, and I highly recommend this unit as with all the Crown amps that have been made from such a great company for years.
And Sweetwater has fantastic prices on all there gear anyhow, so if your looking for great overall quality in a power amp I highly recommend this unit, and it only weighs 11 lbs. close [-]
Just as I had hoped!
by Jay from Westchester, NYSo far one gig. I run sound for an outside concert series (in the hot sun!). I ran the XLS 1000 for about 4 hours, powering two 15" mains and two 15" monitors. My soundboard was 100 feet out in front ... read more [+]of the stage. PLENTY of volume with headroom to spare! Three bands played and I was up to 14 channels going on the board. btw - the sound was terrific - clean and uncolored. And I can't even explain how wonderfully light this thing is. close [-]
