Thumbs up Crown XLS 602D $229 AR

Hey Guys,

I went ahead and bought my Crown. This is a pretty good deal if you ask me. MAP is $499

Specifications

Output Power:
2-ohm Stereo (Per Channel): 840W
4-ohm Stereo (Per Channel): 600W
8-ohm Stereo (Per Channel): 370W

8-ohm Bridged-Mono: 1200W
4-ohm Bridged-Mono: 1680W


Road Dog Online is an authorized retailer, which means you get the rebate and the warranty. (I looked them up on Harman Pro's site.)

Currently, they are offering the XLS 602D for $369.00 shipped.

Add Crown's $135 MIR, and you are down to $234 just like that!


Here is Road Dog's link:

And a link to the rebate valid until May 31!
Crown Cash Rebate



I pricematched the deal to Audiolines because, Road Dog would have to charge me sales tax.


Also qualifies for a $5 Pricegrabber rebate! Final price $229

**NOTE** I am in no way affiliated with any of these companies. I have read the rules and have posted this thread in good faith. I simply hope to share a great deal with other forum members looking for an amp. If it is contrary to forum rules, please delete this post. Cheers!

Be forewarned if you plan to run this amp at 4 Ohms in bridged mono mode that it will run very hot. Make sure it is well ventilated and don't be surprised if it stops if you are working it hard.

Re: Crown XLS 602D $229 AR

Hmm... That's good to know. I was thinking about driving a 2 ohm RLp15 in series. Obviously it might be a little rough on the amp thermally, but what about the driver? They say to leave the attenuators full open so that you have an equal output on each bridged channel. I don't plan on abusing anything, but of course I will be living in a house with a radio, film, and television major. You never know what kinda stuff an intoxicated roommate might pull. Obviously a configuration like this might be a little rough on the amp thermally since it is pushing out more power, but what about the driver? It would probably never even see 1680W, right? After amplifier efficiency loss, line loss, etc. I would guess maybe the sub would have around 1500W max to work with. So would this mean that I would have 500W or so of headroom? Thanks!

Charlie, How're you going to use this amp in a home theater or pro audio?

I can't answer much of what's asked there, but I'd be inclined to NOT run it at 2 Ohms. Despite whatever posted specs the amp may have, 2Ohms is just gonna be too much for just about any amp. I'd say stick with 4 or more.

Yeah, I meant 2 ohm dual voice coil in series. There's no way I would attempt 2. I wound up going with an 8 ohm.
