    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.

          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.

          I use this amp as a booster for my in-home entertainment system, running multiple zones both indoor and outdoor. So easy to set up and the power is outstanding. Far more than I "need", but for the price and quality, it's a no brainer. Recommended to me by a sound engineering expert as "the only one to look at" in the price range. Could not be happier.

              Very easy to set up, a little on the heavy side, but you know it's professional grade just from the Crown name. Used it for an open house outside event, sounded like there was block party in the neighborhood! Have used it for house parties & only able to turn 1/4 of the way, it's so powerful & loud... definitely getting another one when goes on sale again!

                I've had a Crown D-75 since just after they were put on the market all those years ago. It's still working fine. Seeing a 450 watt Crown on sale I decided to upgrade. WOW. My studio just got better. This amp is great. The cooling fans make more hum than the amp does. And the cooling fans are very hard to hear even when standing right next to the amp.

                  I've got an x2000 and an x3000 and both are great! ive had them now for about 7 months and never had a problem. Both are powerful enough that ive never hit a clip light while having it pretty freaking loud. They have a very clean sound and very quiet fans. My friend has a Behringer amp and the fans are immensely louder than the Crowns. They produce very little noise, especially on a circuit with a dedicated ground. It would be nice if they had 1/4in ins but not a huge deal.

                    My past experiance with Crown amps tell me these will last many years , even if run hard .
                    The sound is outstanding with plenty of reserve power . Music is clear , accurate and enjoyable when played thru these amplifiers !

                      Very Compact, Very heavy, but heavy is good, sound is excellent and I am pretty hard to please. Price is remarkable, I would not hesitate to get another one.

                          Very clean and simple. Use it for subs, and clip indicator allows you to zero in quickly on appropriate max output.

                              Using the Crown to amplify acoustic guitar in stereo. My guitar has a Sunrise soundhole pickup and a piezo bridge pickup that go into a Pendulum SPS-1 preamp. I have been using an Acoustic Image Clarus 2R. I use stereo effects. With the SPS-1 into the Crown I am noticing much better string separation, more depth to the sound, and better bass presence. Should have done this a long time ago.

                                It's hard to find a better power amp at this price. Granted it's built heavy and the manual warns of a strong magnetic field generated around it. I have always found Crown gear to have consistently good sound and reliable performance. I am using this to power some 8ohm 400W 95db pa speakers in my studio and it matches up well. The blue led on the front is crazy bright, why? Anyhow, I would buy more of these for home or studio, but would keep looking if I wanted an amp for my gig box.
