Crown XTi1002 Power Amplifier with DSP (1400 Watts)

Powerful yet light, this 1400-watt Crown power amp puts you in control with a built-in subharmonic synth, defeatable limiter and 29 user-definable presets.
The Crown XTi1002 Power Amplifier is a 1400-watt rack-mounted power amp that distinguishes itself with a number of extremely useful precision adjustment controls. It's the smallest and most affordable amplifier in the XTi 2 series -- an great solution for driving a smaller venue PA system. It also serves as a fantastic power conditioner, assuring that your system will get clean AC even if you're working with less-than-optimal power sources.

A number of unique features on the Crown XTi1002 Power Amplifier allow you to control the subtlest details of your sonic output:

Multiband Parametric EQ on Inputs and Outputs

The system software includes a HiQnet Band Manager and System Architect. These allow you to control separate multiband parametric EQs both on the Input and the Outputs! Either EQ can be bypassed when you so desire. The Input EQ also includes High and Low Pass Shelving filters, with Bandpass Gain and Polarity control.

Up to 50 Milliseconds of Delay

The XTi1002's incredibly handy adjustable Delay control gives you 50 mS of delay, so that you can get your speaker output perfectly aligned and eliminate any trace of phase discrepancy.

Peakx Plus Limiters

The XTi1002 excels even further with its sweet Crown Peakx Plus Limiters. These give you full control over Threshold, Attack, and Release on the peak limiters, to make sure that your dynamic extremes are smoothed out in a way that is sonically and musically agreeable.

Subharmonic Synth

There read more is also a Subharmonic Synth integrated into the XTi1002's design, so that you can fine tune Frequency, Gain and Filter Type, allowing for application-specific tuning.

Thoughtful I/O Design for Maximum Versatility

Each input has a single balanced XLR per channel. For audio output, the XTi1002 sports 2 x Neutrik Speakon NL4MP jacks. The Channel-1 Speakon is wired with Channel-1 and Channel-2 outputs for use with an optional 4-conductor cable. The unit also has a Loop-Thru signal from the input connector, allowing you to link each channel to another amplifier when necessary.

Efficient Design, Durable Construction

The Crown XTi1002 Power Amplifier is built rock solid with an all-steel chassis that takes up 1RU of space in a standard rack. The front panel is handsome cast-aluminum. The unit includes integrated cast-aluminum rack handles.

"Power Performance Great Value"
I own 2 of these amps I run them in bridged mono 1400w per channel I use them to power (2) pair Cerwin Vega VS 12" 3-way Tower speakers. Behringer Mixer runs the show. I am very pleased with them extremely clean sound. I DON'T hear any rattling as mentioned in other reviews and the Bass def drops big time. Only thing that I don't like is the fan noise but the music at high levels i don't hear it. So doesn't bother me cooler amps stay the better so be it.
