    So I plan on building a sealed JL 13w7 with EQ to hit 20hz flat, to power that little beast I was wondering if I should get an Behringer EP2500 or a Crown XLS 2502. Personally I'd like to go with the Crown, better efficiency + no need of mods for silence, but I wonder if it can handle the task...
  3. Classifieds - Wanted
    I'm looking for a Crown amp that has 600wpc @ 4 ohms and around 200-400 watts @ 8 ohms. Prefer it be in the XLS or XTi series listed above, but open to options.

    Has anyone used a xls crown Amp on a pair of 683s. From what i read bowers and Wilkins do pair up with rotel quite nicely. I will be using a xls Amp to power my substage it would be nice to keep the amps in my rack the same . My set up is for Ht and music listening..

    Ok, i bought 2 Crown xls 1500 first gen amps because they are a great deal right now. I have a Yamaha reciever which i know does not supply the proper voltage required by the crown amp to run at full potential. So i ordered a ART Cleanbox Pro. Will go AVR-->RCA-->Cleanbox-->XLR-->Crown XLS. Now...

    Hey guys, I have a 15" sub in ported box and the bash500 amp i'm running just doesnt keep up and has clipping issues when run too hard. I'm looking into these 2 amps and wonder what you guys think is the better option. From what I can tell the behringer will have more overall power and the dsp...

    Crown XLS vs Behringer iNuke - A mostly subjective comparison. Background: Last Spring I was building a sub comprised of one of Erich’s 3cuft flat packs and the newly released Dayton Audio UM15-22 and as part of the build I needed to buy an amplifier. I wanted a stand-alone amplifier, because...
  11. Home Audio Subwoofers
    I read that it has a 12 dB/Octave roll off below 20Hz. I e-mailed Crown, and they sent me the message below. I asked them if I can use a mini-DSP to counter that roll off. My concern is: I want my sub to play 16Hz.. If I use Mini-DSP's steepest slope at, for example, 14Hz - should I be safe?

My issue is that I am running a RCA from the reciever to the amp, sub wired to 8ohm bridged on amp. Getting little to no bass out...

    Quick question, I currently have 2 EP4000 which would drive 4 SI 18" (D2 wired for 4ohm) in 24" sealed boxes. One sub per channel. I got the Class D bug and picked up some XLS 1000 and 2000 to drive my speakers. I was thinking of replacing the EP4000 with some XLS amps. How much power would...
