XLS Series with Integrated DriveCore™ Technology

The XLS Series of power amplifiers from Crown define the standard for live sound systems with unmatched performance, technology, and affordability.

This high-performance line consists of four models each providing enormous power and flexibility thanks to the integrated DriveCore™ Technology, PureBand™ Crossover System and Peakx™ limiters. And weighing in at only 10 lbs or less, they provide the ultimate in lightweight portability.

Generating chest-thumping lows and crystal clear highs, the four models in the series – the XLS1000, XLS1500, XLS2000, and XLS2500 – are engineered to meet any demanding audio requirements – reliably and within budget.

Every XLS Series amplifier is backed by Crown's unequaled Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty that covers everything.

With over five decades of experience designing and building rock-solid products, Crown is the standard in amplifier technology. So check out the Crown XLS Series. They are a powerful argument for performance, flexibility, and value!

Integrated DriveCore™ Technology

Class D amplifiers are notable for extraordinarily high efficiency and being well suited for driving difficult reactive loads such as subwoofers. However, their performance can suffer impaired performance on marginal and unstable AC line supplies.

To overcome this obstacle, Crown engineers developed DriveCore™ Technology – a proprietary hybrid analog-digital integrated circuit (IC) developed with Texas Instruments that drives the "front end" of the Class D output stage. Over 60 years of Crown's design knowledge and experience went into the development of this technology resulting in truly remarkable benefits.

DriveCore™ Technology provides an extremely wide-tolerance with regards to sagging or "dirty" AC line conditions providing consistent performance without affecting audio quality. This means that your performance will not be compromised by fluctuating generator power or overloading by lighting rigs, backline gear, etc.

In addition, DriveCore™ Technology's patented feedback and PWM modulation circuits enable fast recovery on peak transients, accurate reproduction of low-level detail, and precise tracking of low-frequencies at high power levels for maximum subwoofer output.

Advanced Switched-Mode Power Supply

This advanced power supply is highly efficient and optimized for maximum power transfer from the AC line through the Class D output stage to the loudspeakers. A benefit to this is substantial weight reduction when compared to older 60Hz transformer-based power supplies. All four models in the line weigh 10 pounds or less with no compromise in performance. This makes the XLS Series the benchmark for high performance lightweight portability.

Peakx limiters

Peakx limiters provide the ultimate in performance and protection for your entire system. This advanced algorithm was specifically developed and tuned to work with this amplifier and power-supply to achieve higher SPL will less audible artifacts. This means less distortion, less shutdowns, and maximum safe power delivered to your speakers. The Peakx™ limiters can be easily turned on or off by channel right from the front panel eliminating the need to be digging around in the back of the dark rack.

    Comments about Crown XLS1000 Pro XLS PA Power Amplifier:

    I bought this amp to power a small 150 watt/channel system to DJ small venues, weddings, house parties and when I use my bigger setup, it is used to power my booth monitors. This amp is a powerhouse, along with the whole line of XLS amps. For being only 11 pounds, 13 when you put it in a 2 space amp case, its light as a feather. Compared that to my old Crown Powerbase 2 that is literally like 60-70 pounds.

    This amp has never failed me, and in most cases, I would usually have wedding venues asking me to turn down the volume before the amp would even come close to clipping, therefore making the sound quality, not only sharp and crisp, but pretty loud as well.

    My only gripe is the built in crossover. It is sometimes difficult to select your highpass and lowpass filters and modes, and sometimes, you aren't sure if the mode is properly engaged. But, in a crossover bypass mode, with a simple speaker setup, its easy plug and play with great sound out of the box with no messing with the EQ.

          In order to run those speakers properly you will need at least 350w per channel in 8 ohms. I would recommend the XLS2000. The XLS1000 would get sound to come out of the speakers but you will have to be running the amp at near full volume all the time wich is hard on it. Spend the extra money and get an amp that has at least 1.5 times the continuos power rating at the proper ohms rating, it will prolong the life of the amp and sound better. If you have any more questions feel free to give us a call if you have any more questions. 800-945-9300.
