Crown Unveils XLS Series

ELKHART, Indiana - September 2001 -- Crown Audio has recently announced the launch of its new XLS Series, a cost-effective line of amplifiers engineered with hard-working mobile DJs and musicians in mind.

The XLS 202, 402 and 602 all combine first-class reliability with a number of significant features. A selectable high-pass filter (30Hz/15Hz/Off) on each channel enables the amplifier to work more efficiently when not being used with full-range cabinets or subwoofers, while a pair of linear optocoupler clip limiters helps protect loudspeakers from being overdriven.

Housed in rugged, all-steel 3U chassis, the three XLS models employ an efficient forced air fan to prevent excessive thermal buildup. Front panels sport dual, precision detented level controls, a power switch and four LEDs, which indicate clip for each channel, power and fault conditions. Rear panel connections include two electronically balanced XLR inputs and touch-proof binding post outputs.

"XLS Series amplifiers are great for DJs and bands that need a rugged and dependable workhorse," says Bob Lichty, Crown Audio music industry marketing director. "Despite their extremely economical price tags, these amplifiers don't cut any corners with regard to features or performance."

Like all of Crown's amplifiers, XLS products are backed by the manufacturer's industry-exclusive Three-year, No-fault, Fully Transferable Warranty.

Power ratings (per channel) and suggested US retail pricing on the Crown XLS Series amplifiers are as follows:

  • · XLS 202:  250W / 2 Ohms; 200W / 4 Ohms; 145W / 8 Ohms; $529

  • · XLS 402:  570W / 2 Ohms; 400W / 4 Ohms; 260W / 8 Ohms; $629

  • · XLS 602:  840W / 2 Ohms; 600W / 4 Ohms; 370W / 8 Ohms; $829 

Crown Audio, a Harman International company, manufactures amplifiers, microphones and systems control products for professional audio markets worldwide, with corporate headquarters located in Elkhart, Indiana, USA.
