"Crown XLS2502 & Cerwin Vega XLS-12"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
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.
