Light Weight, Powerful, Flexible and it has Crown on it's Label
I have purchased several of these units and they stand as our primary amplifier for all our set-ups. We currently are Central Florida's #1 DJ Service and our equipment is a big part of that. I gradually made the change over from some old school Crest Amplifiers which weighed literally 2-3 times as much as these Crown amplifiers with the same power specs. I was not sold at first as power usually comes from huge and heavy power reserve blocks but Crown has done it. We have 4 main set-ups for each of our DJs that run hard every weekend. Subs, mains and indoors and outdoors all without a hiccup. The XTI 2 series in General is just awesome with 4 models with DSP to choose from we use all and everyone of them has been more impressive than the latter. I highly recommend any amplifier with Crown name on it, especially the XTI 2 amplifiers. They pack a good punch in any application and are an excellent value at this price point. Lastly, there are audiophiles out there that will talk about dampening factor and how these amps shouldn't be on subwoofer duty etc...Listen, I have been doing this a long time 29+ years and yes they aren't my first choice for subs, as they are not amplifiers with huge power reserves but they do an excellent job if you understand their real application for mains and DJ playback. They power subs excellent in this category. They just won't be found in the subwoofer amp case at an Iron Maiden concert. That isn't their best role; however, their older brothers and sisters in the Macrotech Series will be found there and that's an excellent linkage to a great family of Amplifiers. Crown is a name that has a rich history and that means a real lot in the amplifier game.
