      Enormous power and flexibility in a highly portable power amp.

      Crown's XLS 2000 power amplifier is a premiere portable PA system with unmatched performance, technology and affordability. It includes multiple inputs so you can plug in anything and play anywhere, along with several system setup configurations. This high-performance power amp provides enormous power and flexibility thanks to the integrated DriveCore Technology, PureBand Crossover System and Peakx limiters. Weighing less than 12 pounds, the Crown XLS2000 power amp is much easier to set up and move from show to show.

      A Power Amp with Integrated DriveCore Technology

      Class D amplifiers are notable for extraordinarily high efficiency and being well suited for driving difficult reactive loads such as subwoofers. However, their performance can suffer impaired performance on marginal and unstable AC line supplies. To overcome this obstacle, Crown engineers developed DriveCore Technology—a proprietary hybrid analog-digital integrated circuit (IC) developed with Texas Instruments that drives the "front end" of the Class D output stage. Over 60 years of Crown's design knowledge and experience went into developing this technology resulting in truly remarkable benefits. The DriveCore Technology in this Crown power amp provides an extremely wide tolerance with regards to sagging or "dirty" AC line conditions, providing consistent performance without affecting audio quality. This means the XLS2000 power amplifier will not compromise your performance by fluctuating generator power, or overload from lighting rigs, backline gear, etc.

      In addition, DriveCore Technology's patented feedback and PWM modulation circuits enable fast recovery on peak transients, accurate reproduction of low-level detail, and precise tracking of low frequencies at high-power levels for maximum subwoofer output.

      Advanced Switched-Mode Power Supply

      This advanced power supply in the Crown XLS2000 power amp is highly efficient and optimized for maximum power transfer from the AC line through the Class D output stage to the loudspeakers. A benefit to this is substantial weight reduction when compared to older 60Hz transformer-based power supplies.

      PureBand Crossover System
      The PureBand Crossover System in the Crown XLS Series adds an enormous amount of flexibility and performance to any system. With this system, the crossover frequency is completely variable allowing the choice of any crossover point between 50Hz and 3kHz on 1/12 octave centers. The use of 4th order Linkwitz-Riley filters provide steep slopes for a seamless transition between high and low drivers. And with four crossover modes to choose from providing the ultimate in flexibility, all of your system needs are covered.

      Peakx limiters

      Peakx limiters provide the ultimate in performance and protection for your entire system. This advanced algorithm was specifically developed and tuned to work with this amplifier and power-supply to achieve higher SPL will less audible artifacts. This means less distortion, less shutdowns, and maximum safe power delivered to your speakers. The Crown power amp's Peakx limiters can be easily turned on or off by channel right from the front panel eliminating the need to be digging around in the back of the dark rack.

          Comments about Crown XLS2000 DriveCore Series Power Amp:

          I bought this to replace a QSC RMX850. I needed more power and the price was good. It lightens up the rack nicely too. There is no fan noise at all. The fan turns on and off when needed. I use it for jamming in the basement with my band once a week and the occaisonal show. I play classic rock, blues and original music. The amp has given the vocals a nice boost in power over the old amp. Nice and clear.

          Best Purchase I've Made.

          By AudioPros

          from Spindale, NC

          Comments about Crown XLS2000 DriveCore Series Power Amp:

          Got my Crown XLS2000 2 weeks ago because a Musicians Friend sales person suggested it after my IPR 1600 overheated & quit. Light weight, packs a punch + features a built in crossover and is very user friendly. Used in mobile DJ rig for 2 shows and I?m amazed. Plenty of headroom before it clips, Ch. 1 on subs & ch. 2 full range on the tops. Over 20 years in the biz, this is the best purchase I?ve made in quiet a while. Plan to replace 4 other amps with the XLS2000 or XLS2500 ASAP.

          Comments about Crown XLS2000 DriveCore Series Power Amp:

          I have had this amp for a few months. Great on the monitors. Its got lot of head room befor cliping. I have bidged it with my 4 15" sub cab 8 ohms. it rocks pretty good. The dsp is awsome. And so light. I compared with the pevey 2600 bridged and it came close but the pevey pushed a little harder. Im thinking about trying the 2500 model.
