Product DescriptionThe Xs 1200 is the highest-powered model in Crown's Xs series, providing 1,100 watts per channel into 4 ohms for customers demanding more power within the Xs Series. Designed with mobile DJs, musicians and regional tour companies in mind, the Xs Series offers compact, lightweight, 2RU designs along with very aggressive price points.
Like the other models in the Xs Series, the Xs 1200 includes a number of notable features. The amplifier is housed in a rugged, all-steel 2RU chassis and employs efficient forced-air cooling. The front panel features dual precision-detented level controls, power switch, bridge, power, AC mains present, temp and fault LEDs and signal and clip LEDs for each channel. Rear panel connections include Neutrik® Combo inputs, allowing balanced XLR or 1/4-in. connections, barrier strip inputs, XLR male outputs for daisy-chaining, plus touch-proof binding post, Speakon® and Phoenix outputs.
The Xs 1200 also employs extensive protection and diagnostics capabilities, including output current limiting, DC protection, circuit breaker, and special thermal protection. Like all Crown amplifiers, Xs Series products are backed by the manufacturer's industry-exclusive Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty. Power ratings per channel are as follows: 1,600W at 2 Ohms 1,100W at 4 Ohms 650W at 8 Ohms.
Housed in a rugged, all-steel 2U chassis
Efficient forced-air fan prevents excessive thermal buildup
2-channel models have XLR-1/4 in. combo and Phoenix-style inputs, daisy-chain XLR outputs, touch-proof binding post outputs and Speakon® outputs.
Precision detented level controls, power switch, and eight LEDs which indicate signal and clip for each channel, power, AC mains, bridge mode, temperature and fault conditions
Microprocessor-controlled protection system
Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty completely protects your investment and guarantees its specifications
The Xs Series of power amplifiers from Crown® represents a new era in affordable, quality power amplification. The line consists of five models in a uniform, rugged 2U chassis, incorporating the best of tried-and-true design principles and innovative features.
The four 2-channel models in the series are the Xs500, Xs700, Xs900, and Xs1200. They are identical to the user except for output power. The Xs4300 is a 4-channel model. Xs Series amplifiers are professional stereo power amplifiers engineered to meet demanding audio requirements-reliably and within budget.
Every Xs Series amplifier is backed by Crown's unequaled Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty. With over five decades of experience designing and building rock-solid products, Crown is the standard in amplifier technology.
