Everything I Expected, and More.

I needed two amps (1 for mains and 1 for monitors) to go with the Soundcraft Ui16 mixer I also purchased from Sweetwater, so I decided to keep it all in the Harman family. I've only used them once so far for a live gig in stereo mode and they sounded great. I really appreciate how lightweight they are as well. I realize I've only scratched the surface of what these amps are capable of, and while I may not use all the features, it's nice to know they are available should the need arise.

Crown XLS 1502

Have used Crown amps for the last 10 years and they never let me down ! This one steps right up to the plate as well.


Very clean noise free power. Lightweight and easy setup. A+++ for CROWN and Sweetwater.

GReat Quite Power

So quite you don't know it's running. Delivers ultimate, clean noise free power. Very light and easy to tote around. A real nice addition to my audio system.

Excellent affordable amp

The versatility with all the filtering is a great reason to buy this amp. Have only had it long enough to do 3 gigs with it, but so far, holds up great. Super light-weight, and shallow in the rack. The RCA inputs are a nice addition too. Hopefully Crown's reputation for high reliability will follow through. Time will tell.
