Overall: We used this amplifier for our Easter concert outside in front of our church Packsaddle Fellowship. We were driving my Cerwin-Vega PB-18B Boxes. There were 15 singers, 3 keyboards, my 100 Watt Marshall half stack and another guitarist through a Fender amp and Bass and drums. The sound was crystal clear and beautifully loud enough to be well projected to the entire area. We had the XLI at just about 50% OF MAX. We had many people there and the comments on the mix and the sound were all extremely positive, even from very well trained ears. THANK YOU, ZZOUNDS FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE! Thanks be to God for this blessing.

Sound: This crown amp brings out details in instruments that other amps in it's price range or in some cases twice it's price range could not touch.Great amp would recommend to anyone that does not need dsp. Feature: It has a input sensitivity switch that is real helpful if your running it through a receiver. Ease of Use: Plug and play Quality: Construction seems solid after all it weighs 43lbs. Value: Hard to beat. Manufacturer Support: Hope i do not need any. The Wow Factor: No i would not want this if i could not use it to make music. Overall: Now that i have used this amp for 3 months i can tell people a little bit about it.First,i own several amps so that should give my opinion a little credibility.This crown brings out the details so each instrument can articulate it's exact sound right down to the minute details it really is that good across the 20hz-20khz spectrum.As far as power it is rated at khz rather than hz so don't be deceived thinking it has more power than it does.I have a amp that is rated at 1100 watts hz per channel at 4 ohms and it has a little more power than this crown rated at 1350 khz per channel at 4 ohms.That being said this amp has enough power to drive most speakers except big subs and a person would be hard pressed to find a amp that sounds this good in it's price point excellent job harman engineers.Also i want to give a big shout out to zz their play as you pay option is awsome takes away alot of stress when buying new gear,so thanks zz.
