      Comments about Crown XLS1502 2-Channel 525W Power Amplifier with Onboard DSP:

      When our old sub driver power amp crashed & burned during a live show we ordered the Crown XLS 1502 soon as we came off stage. It arrived in time for us to use on the next gig & we were so impressed with it's performance that we just ordered another one to drive our mains as well. It not only lightened the weight of our rack by 50 lbs. or so, we no longer have to play MacGyver & trouble shoot our gear during sound checks. Awesome product & excellent service from order to arrival. Cheers M8's.

      Used this amp for an outdoor music-in-the park show. I use three for my system, running the subs with one, the mains with another and the monitors with the third. This amp replaced a XLS1000. The extra power was immediately obvious. It performed flawlessly for the entire six-hours of the show. Great amp. I love the light weight.

      Comments about Crown XLS1502 2-Channel 525W Power Amplifier with Onboard DSP:

      So far this amp works great, especially for its light weight. I have an older Crown with only 200 watts which is 30 lbs. Love this amp's ability, at the push of a button, to bridge or split channels for normal output, while using the other channel, which it can be set to EQ out low end sub bass. Many other features. I have not tried.

      Comments about Crown XLS1502 2-Channel 525W Power Amplifier with Onboard DSP:

      I've currently got a bi amp setup, running a behringer 2496le speaker management system. Qsc gx5 to tops and Qsc gx7 to subs. Thought it would be nice to pull the gx5 out and run the gx7 to my tops and this amp to my subs (4 ohm bridged 1550watts). Just to save time I kept the gx5 running my tops and ran this to subs 4 ohm bridged. With qsc running 8 ohm stereo I have 500 Watts for highs. When I powered everything up to test my qsc gx5 buried this crown. Really not sure if I just got a bad one or what but I really am kind of afraid to try another one.

          Comments about Crown XLS1502 2-Channel 525W Power Amplifier with Onboard DSP:

          This amp seems versatile. The price was really good too. I bought it specifically to replace the troublesome plate amp on my Mackie subwoofer. This amp has DSP and was easy to configure for bridge-mode and set to the frequency band that I wanted. It also has selectable input voltage for low or high input sources. It does lots more than what I will specifically need for this application. It is able to put out 1400 watts into 4 ohms which is perfect for this sub. It has posts and speakcon connectors. I bought a 4-pole speakcon plug end so I can wire it for bridge connection and hook up quickly. Brought that subwoofer back to life! The amp is really light too. Looking forward to giving this a true workout now.
