      OVERVIEW

      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.

      FEATURES
      • XLS High Performance, Lightweight Class D power amp weighs less than 11 lbs.
      • Integrated PureBand Crossover System for better performance and control
      • Peakx Limiters provide maximum output while protecting your speakers
      • XLR, 1/4", RCA inputs provide outstanding flexibility
      • 1/4" Inputs can be used as loop-thrus to distribute signal to additional amplifiers Efficient forced-air fans prevent excessive thermal buildup
      • Electronically balanced XLR inputs; touchproof binding post and Speakon outputs
      • Precision detented level controls, power switch, power LED, and six LEDs indicate signal, clip and fault for each channel

      The XLS is a leader in portable amps, with DriveCore Technology, PureBand Crossover System, and Peakx limiters.

      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.

        I have two of these, run 4 JRX118s with one in stereo and 2 JRX125 in stereo with the other. Great sound, lightweight, low power draw. I have had many compliments on how clear they sound. Never had an issue with them. Have four more on order for bigger shows.

                    Excellent quality, fit, and finish in an 11 lb. package. Runs cool, crystal clear amplification. Minor drawback is that the amp's input sensitivity is a little higher than usually seen (1.4V vs 1.0V) so you might need to set your mixer output a little higher than 0 dB to achieve full rated output. Some mixers may distort at that level. However, the XLS 2000 has a lot of power to spare, so most users probably won't notice.

                      I bought this to replace my crown XLS 602 which I've been using for over six years, multiple times a week as a gigging musician. Crown remains to be a workhorse, and now that this new amp is a quarter of the weight and still as powerful is going to help me tremendously on the road from night to night. This amp is worth every penny. I expect to get many years of fantastic sound quality out of it as I did with my other crown amp
