"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.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful.
Very powerful with tight bass and damping. Using to bi-amp and for woofers the sound is excellent. The fan has never come on and the amp is always cold. Using the amp in a horizontal bi-amp configuration for HT

"Great Amp!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The Crown 2502 has plenty of power to push my speakers. I have yet to find the right speakers that meet my standard of listening pleasure. I tried the Cerwin Vega XLS 15 but was not happy with the sound. The hunt for the perfect front stage is now on. Until then, I now use the crown amp to power an old pair of Boston Acoustic CR9s and they sound fantastic. zZounds shipped the amp fast and provided me with great service. Very happy with the purchase.

"WOW. POWER!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Holey heck! I just upgraded from the XLS2002 model which is the model down from this one and OMG, this thing pumps so hard. Much harder than the 2002. I have it running two Peavey passive 18" subs into a 4 ohm mono load. It drives them until they can pump any harder. Never clips. AWESOME!!!
