Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Crown XLS2502 & Cerwin Vega XLS-12"
Overall: Short answer: Buy the Crown XLS2502 Drive Core 2 amp! Long answer: Setup: Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1101 (I am upgrading this to an Onkyo) External power amp: Crown XLS2502 Drive Core 2 Speakers: (2) Cerwin Vega XLS-12, Cerwin Vega XLS-15S (powered sub), Cerwin Vega XLS 6C (center channel) Assumption: Crown amp driving the floor standing Cerwin Vega XLS-12 (3 way, 12” floor standing speakers). I had bought the Cerwin Vega XLS-12 that was first driven by the Pioneer receiver alone. It sounded good however at loud volumes, around 90 volume level on the receiver, it became very, very distorted. Sounded awful and was very disappointment. The speakers needed lots of power. So after much research I settled for the Crown XLS2502. WOW! I honestly do not know how loud can my system can go now. It is so clear at LOUD volume. ZERO DISOTRAION at any volume level. I had no idea that the speakers were that under powered by the receiver. When you hear your speakers cracking with distortion they are under powered, not because it’s too loud. My system at low-medium volume level sound good, but when cracked up to 90 they sound great. Lots of bass, extreme clear vocals from the mids and crisp highs from the tweeters. The Crown amp and Cerwin Vega XLS-12 are the best purchase I have ever made. My house is ready for a real party now. Sorry neighbors my house rivals most clubs.

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.
