OVERVIEW

Professional sound at its best.

Designed to achieve unsurpassed sonic performance and long-term reliability, the Crest Audio CA 6 1500W power amplifier comes equipped with professional power-handling capabilities and exceptional low-end response. It is an ideal choice for installations and touring applications that demand the finest audio quality. The CA 6 rack amp provides high power output coupled with true clarity, and is well-suited for high-powered subwoofers and passive full range systems.

Absolute sonic accuracy is the hallmark of every Crest amplifier. Bass is solid and defined to the limits of audibility, with ample current reserves delivered by an "over-engineered" power supply and advanced Class H circuitry. Wide-bandwidth output devices assure detailed, transparent high frequency response. And thanks to Crest's exclusive IGM circuit, the CA6 will drive 2 Ohm loads safely without compromise in performance.

The CA series provides tremendous value in proven amplifier technology. Crest Audio amps form the backbone of discriminating rental systems and high-power club installations worldwide. Auditoriums, churches, regional tour sound companies and mobile DJs are all ideal candidates for the CA Series' combination of value and sonic quality.

WOW!

By NHDJ

from New Hampshire

I own a CA6 what I LOVE. only draw back is that once the pre amp boards go in them, be prepared to buy a new amp or spend a lot to get it fixed as Crest no longer makes the whole pre amp boards. other then that, these amps ROCK! I have used Crest for years and years under conditions that other amps would never be able to do without a problem. I believe that Crest under rates the power of their amps. My CA6 that I am currently replacing due to a bad pre amp board is one of the first ones made over 10 years ago and this is the only problem I have had with it. I would HIGHLY reccomend these amps.
