Crown Power Amplifier XLS2000 DriveCore – No Longer Available

Portable PA system
MFR# XLS2000

Product Description

Five decades of power amp innovation have been rolled into Crown's impressive new XLS Series of amplifiers. The Crown XLS2000 DriveCore amplifier features flexibility you'll appreciate, including multiple inputs, so you can plug in anything and play anywhere. Compared to many 40-lb competitors, this 12 lb beast uses integrated crossovers, and advanced switched-mode power supply, and peak limiters to protect your entire system. Priced to fit comfortably into any gigging band's budget — the XLS Series represents a powerful argument for flexibility, performance, and value.

Class D amps can suffer impaired performance when they're being fed by unstable AC lines. To overcome this issue, Crown came up with DriveCore — it's a hybrid analog-digital integrated circuit that provides an extremely wide tolerance of sagging or "dirty" AC line conditions. That means, even if you plug into an unreliable wall outlet, you can enjoy consistent performance without affecting audio quality. In short, demanding equipment like lighting rigs and back-line gear won't interfere with the sound — as it should be.

Other features on the XLS 2000 — which you're looking at now — include Crown's PureBand Crossover System. With this system, you can vary the crossover frequency, choosing any point between 50Hz and 3kHz on 1/12 octave centers. And with four crossover modes to choose from, you know your needs will be covered. Finally, the XLS 2000 features Crown's Peak-x limiters to help you achieve higher SPL with less audible artifacts. What it comes down to, is that you'll enjoy less distortion, fewer shutdowns, and maximum safe power delivered to your important speaker investments.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
