I just wondering if the amp doesn't meet US regulatory compliance for a 4 ohm bridged configuration and something goes wrong with the amp, would the amp we warrantied?
The answer straight from Crown is YES and kouack is right about the rating in 4 ohm.
I LOVE my XLS. The XTI amps do have a HUGE rolloff starting at 25hz and even with their eq I could not get it flat. That and the XTI sounded like it had no "low-end punch".

I read up on that issue, it's the possibility of exceeding 15 amps at 120V. From the Crown forums:

3 years no fault warranty basically anything can happen to your amp and they will fix it. What's happening with CE regulation can be just the amp will run too hot to meet a regulation or ampere rating like you wrote. Plus HT duty is far less demanding then doing a gig at full blast all night in a hot and humid bar, just not the same ball game at all.
