    Another great line from Crown

    The Drive Core 02 series lives up to the Drive Core name. Lightweight, fans stay off almost all the time, and clean power with no discernible distortion even @ 4Ohm load.

    The Crown amp is light and had the power I need for installs!
    Very Happy! And as usual Mike (my guy) and Sweetwater flippin' ROCK!!!

    Great Amp

    This works perfect in my home system where I use a Marantz 2252B as a preamp, and Cerwin Vega AT-15's. So much headroom. It's like I have a small PA in my living room. Overkill for sure, but wow! I have barely scratched the surface with it. Fear not. It is a fine performer.

    Great little unit

    I called Chris Lewis and needed a power amp for a mixing board a friend gave me.I had no idea what I needed.Chris knew exactly what I needed,recommended this unit and it works perfectly.Thanks for being very helpful,and knowing what questions to ask so that I got the right unit.I will always trust and return to Sweetwater for all my musical needs.

    I had a small meeting to play. I purchased the Crown XLS 1002 for the gig and others I expect will be coming up. It is VERY light weight compared to an older Peavey powerhead I own. The Crown is a no brainer to operate and drives my 2 JBL cabinets with power left for larger rooms. Also, I will be able to incorporate it with my larger sound system.

    upgrade time

    Ordered 2 models of this new line 1002 & 2002 to replace a couple of old school peavey tanks that we have.First off these are dead silent at standby,produce very little heat when operating, and are VERY portable! 20lbs for these 2 compared to 75 for the other 2.They run well at 8 ohm bridge as well as 8 ohm and 4 ohm stereo.Don't seem to like 4 ohm bridge go into thermal very quickly. Power output seem a little inflated,these are the same power power ratings as the old schools just don't seem to have the raw output current the old class AB's have.Very clean sounding seem to have better dynamic range than the old school amps.very happy overall with my purchase well just have to see if they can last 30 years like the old ones we have.
