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!

    This amplifier has got to be the best "bang for the buck" going right now. 900watts in the bridged mono mode will handle just about anything. Sound is clear & full !

    Comments about Crown X2000 Stereo 2x450W Power Amp:

    I wanted to upgrade my Peavey PV-4C, old school and still working after all of these years, and was researching different power amps. Looked at the class D amps and was torn between them and this class AB until I visited one of the vendor sites and people were complaining that their class D power amp wouldn't boot, needed a microcode update etc. This sold me on an old School class AB amplifier. Yeah it is heavy but so what. The sound/power is incredible. The price is excellent. I have a feeling when they are gone, class AB power amplifiers will become very expensive. So, I put my order in for a second one without any regrets.

              Bought this to power my Yamaha A15's. Works great. Easy to use. Sound is crystal clear. Toted it to a few gigs with no case and had no problems. Now have it in a rack case. It is very heavy but worth it for the quality sound it pumps out. Would buy another. Have used it at 4-5 gigs now and it performed flawlessly. Even used it at an all day festival from 12noon until 1100pm and it never failed even after 11 straight hours. Love it.
