Product Description

If you've spent any time at all in professional audio, you know the name Crown and what it stands for - incredible performance and sound, the ultimate in reliability under harsh conditions, and the best support in the business. These are just a few of the reasons why the world's biggest tours and most prestigious installations have Crown amps in their racks. And now, with the introduction of the new CE Series, Crown professional amplifiers come in a very affordable price range.

CE Series amplifiers are professional tools designed and built for professional use. Engineered and manufactured by the same teams who build the acclaimed Macro-Tech and K Series amps, the new CE 1000 and CE 2000 have the rugged heart and soul that has characterized Crown amplifiers for over 30 years. Rather than make a cheap amplifier and hang all sorts of semiprofessional features on it, they focused on providing powerful, reliable performance with many of the same controls and features you've come to expect from Crown. You'll find front panel detented level controls, useful function indicators, proportional fan-assisted cooling, short circuit protection, and more. And, to make the amplifier more flexible to the way that you work, Crown has provided a new SST (System Solution Topologies) module which allows you to customize the amplifier with true professional features such as fixed-point crossover cards.

The result is an amplifier capable of chest-thumping lows that easily handles real 2-ohm loads and runs longer under difficult conditions than any competitive amp out there. Plus, your investment in a CE amplifier is backed by Crown's unequaled Three Year, No-Fault, Full Warranty that covers everything.

Compare the new CE 1000 and CE 2000 head-to-head with the competition and hear for yourself why Crown is the only serious choice for audio professionals.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Crown products.

Mode: Turn power off before switching. A 2-position switch located on the back panel below the input connectors which, when turned to stereo, operates the amplifier as 2 independent channels. When "Bridge-Mono" mode is selected, the amplifier bridges the 2 output channels for twice the output voltage.

Signal: A green LED for each channel which flashes when a very low-level signal (>-40 dBm) is present at input. May be used for troubleshooting cable runs.

Clip: A red LED for each channel which turns on when distortion becomes audible in the amplifier output.

Fault: Normally off, this red indicator will blink under 5 different conditions:
When the amplifier is first powered up, until the unit is ready for operation. If the heatsinks reach a temperature above normal working limits. If the transformer thermal protection circuit is activated. If amplifier output wires develop a short-circuit. Should the amplifier output stage become non-operational. This circuit may be monitored remotely by plugging a simple switching circuit using an LED or other signaling device into the back-panel RJ-11 (Fault) jack. Under some conditions, the output of the amplifier will be muted.

Power: A green LED that turns on when the amplifier has been turned on and has power.

Input/Output
Input:
Input Connector (standard module): One Neutrik(TM) Combo connector for each channel which features a balanced

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
