I needed a new Dj amp for my 3 way main cabs. First I hooked up the XLS 402D By itself and was dissapointed. Little headroom, and it was bearly moving the speakers w/ clipping. However when chained to my dbx crossoverover, Alissis compressor/limiter, and a ART equilizer w/ the gain up a little I had a brand new amp. Lots more headroom, minimal clipping, and pumping quite nicely. Even though I'm only puting 300w into much larger cabs. The amp stayd verry cool even after 7 hours in the sometimes direct sun. I am probably going to move up to a 602 or 802 for bigger jobs. The main con is it's a huge heavy amp. on top of my smaller, lighter 2000w sub amp it makes it hard to reach the sub jacks. I hope this helps would be buyers.

Amp started clipping badly even at half power with 8ohm JBLs on each side and then had no output at all. Little over a year old and I have to get it repaired and wonder if it is worth it.
Needs standard 1/4 inch outputs. Does not tell you that. Should tell you minimum ohms are 4, but it is not likely you will put less than that on it. I never put less than 8. It DOES say it somewhere in the manual if you fish deep enough.
Was great while it worked.
Should last longer than a year.

I'm using this to run two 200W RMS 12" behringer PA cabs, I think it sounds great. I'm using it for electronic drums and general music playback. It gets plenty loud enough, is very clear, and has almost no noise. If I turn the mixer outputs off or unplug them and turn up the amp to the max volume, the noise is almost inaudible. I'm looking forward to buying a second one to run a 15" subwoofer, and it will be loud enough to play at smaller venues with great sound. Crown states that these amps use class-I circuitry, with the efficiency of class-D and cleaner sound than a AB class amplifier.I'de say the only downside is that there are no extra features such as crossover filters or anything similar.
I bought this amp to power two 8 ohm (12") subs for my home theater. All I can say is that the amp works very well. I like the fact that the amp has an input signal light on the front and the air vents are on the front and rear of the unit...not on the top. The amp is quite and it drives the subs. This is the first amp I ever purchased and I am glad I went with Crown!
300 watts may not seem like a lot, but when the 402 drives my Yamaha S115V speakers as mains, my rock band more than fills small-medium venues with clear sound. Even used it outside for sporting event announcing, and it's worked great! I'm upgrading to a bigger amp to be able to play larger venues, but I'm keeping the 402 to drive my monitors. Highly recommended!
This amp has a nice clean sound. We used this amp to to replace a Mackie amp that I loved dearly (who knows what happened as all this is at a church) Even though it sounds good, it does not get near as loud as the Mackie used to. We are useing it to power two EV SX300s (which are awesome by the way). The amp doesnt clip or anything it just doesnt have near as much headroom. If you are looking for nice clean sound around this wattage range, then buy this amp. If its loud and clear you want I would still go with the Mackie amps.
It's not a bad little amplifier. The sound I get out of it is pretty good, but I do get more background hiss out of this amp than I have with others of equal dollar value. It's not that big of a deal since this is the kind of amp you use for small gigs, but it would be nice it it was a touch quieter when the music goes silent.
I bought this amp. about a Month ago and it's just beautiful. Great clean sound, and it's a real work horse too! Only thing I would like to see is instead of just MONO and STEREO modes add a PARALLEL mode as well. But all in all its a beautiful amp. I will continue to buy Crown for a long time to come!
I have had several amps over the years and currently own three others besides this one. The day I got this bad boy I put it to work and must say there is a difference between Crown amps and every other! The price is a little high compared to behrengers but so well worth it. This amp is a TANK! It runs cool quite and blasts! By far the best amp-and greatly built! I was worried about not having enough power and was thinking I should have got the 603 series but this powers four speaker cabinets with 16 inch speakers and has no problems at all. It is very capable of doing fairly large gigs dispute what the product info says it can handle the jobs! Thanks to this site!
Just switched to this for my bass rig. I run my bass into a Bass PodXT Live and crossover it into the XLS402. From there I run the lows into a 1x15 and the highs into a 4x10. The set up gives me loads of punch and brightness and is plenty loud. I would definitely recommend this unit.
I bought this amp to pump the subs but it will not run @ 4ohms mono. I'm using it to run the 15's @4 ohm stereo and have no problems with it being loud enough, even outside. Still not the workhorse the old Peavey CS-800 is, but a good value for the money. If you need to pump some subs spend the money and get the bigger xls model.
This is a very clean sounding amp. I bought the XLS402 recently to power 2 15" cabs. The first gig I used it on, I really pushed it. It stayed clean, ran cool, and never clipped. I do think, however that I should have gone for the XLS602 for a little more punch. Overall, I am very happy with it.
