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
Like all of Crown's
