I used to run some fairly conservatively rated, but powerful, home theater amps (speakercraft BB275) in conjunction with a pair of behringer vp2520s for live performances, but this amp really thunders. After having used a few XLS series crowns I really wasn't impressed with crowns when a 75WPC amp could grossly outperform an XLS1500, or even a behringer EP AND EPX4000 using the same configuration. However, this amp has me impressed. It definitely feels like it puts out what it's rated, rather than some large impressive number. Even at the floor shaking levels I run, it hasn't even clipped or shown any hint of distortion beyond what's in the source material. I may buy another to drive my subs and leave the other amps for monitor use.

Died at the first two "testing...1 2 3"....checks.....I looked first at my mixer connections...all ok...then I turned to my new Crown amp.....no "red indicator" so assumed it was ok.....checked eq, limiter, and speaker wires....all were ok.....re powered the system and the amp came up working....during the show left n right sides were intermittently going in and out.....I pulled the Crown out and put my trusted Carvin DCM2000 back in and the show was saved....sending this Crown back!

      Comments about Crown X2000 Stereo 2x450W Power Amp:

      Using the Crown to amplify acoustic guitar in stereo. My guitar has a Sunrise soundhole pickup and a piezo bridge pickup that go into a Pendulum SPS-1 preamp. I have been using an Acoustic Image Clarus 2R. I use stereo effects. With the SPS-1 into the Crown I am noticing much better string separation, more depth to the sound, and better bass presence. Should have done this a long time ago.

        Comments about Crown X2000 Stereo 2x450W Power Amp:

        I got this amp to Connect to my old Box style Power Mixer for more power. The older mixer has 450w per channel same as the Crown x2000. I received it hooked it up to make sure it worked ok. WOW was I surprised! The Crown X2000 sounded so good that I have not used my old amp. This thing KICKS BUTT! The drivers must be huge! Performs like an amp twice its power. At the price I may buy another.

          Comments about Crown X2000 Stereo 2x450W Power Amp:

          It's hard to find a better power amp at this price. Granted it's built heavy and the manual warns of a strong magnetic field generated around it. I have always found Crown gear to have consistently good sound and reliable performance. I am using this to power some 8ohm 400W 95db pa speakers in my studio and it matches up well. The blue led on the front is crazy bright, why? Anyhow, I would buy more of these for home or studio, but would keep looking if I wanted an amp for my gig box.

                    I would consider this an introductory amp so if you are not familiar with them and don't want to spend a lot, to try it out this is the one for you. For the price you can't beat i,t easy to setup and use. I run two seperate monitors with the power amp so I had to also buy cables that were TRS 1/4 in to male XLR fairly inexpensive but made a world of difference on our on stage sound

                          I've listened to it a bit to make sure it works as it should but I haven't pushed it very hard yet. The fans are nice and quiet, unlike a weaker Pyle amp I have which has a very loud fan. It sure is heavy! I don't doubt that it's as powerful as claimed, but how can a 450 watt per channel amp only draw the 400 watts specified on the tag unless it's some kind of overunity/free energy device?
