  1. I posted a similar question to this back in september -- http://www.crownaudio.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=2617 I would (I was/am) going to use two XTi-2000s in bridged mono (one for each 528's giving them 2000w, the exact program power). As for the 525's I have an XTi 4000 (1200w, a little shy of the program power) powering those, and they kick a$$, LOUD, clear and tight! My current rig has the two 525's on a XTi-4000 and two MP418s on a Crest audio LT-2000 (which is similar in power output to the XTi-2000) with a driverackPA. We recently used this system for a party on NYE in NYC in a party of about 500 and it rocked it no problem. I couldn't be happier with it for the price and quality of the sound. I would like to add two of the 528s and XTi-2000's sometime soon but I caught wind of a rumor thats making me hold off for a little bit. It was a good rumor and hopefully a true one that i would really like to come true. whattis this rumor you speak of????? and 1 FR2500 per 528 makes it perform amazingly well. we use the 2 528 for a massive gym and it shakes the stands on all sides. thank you for your advice! i think i might go with the xti2000 HAHA! Im so happy now that its not a rumor....Check it out http://www.crownaudio.com/amp_htm/xti.htm the XTi-6000. So now the best way to amp your rig would be one XTi-4000 and one XTi-6000 (im picking one up ASAP)

  3. Search it, see what comes up. I saw it today searching for the XTi-6000 (which is apparently not real according to PSSL). Crown kind of let us know about the Macro-tech i series before they were available, but they are keeping the lid tight on these two (maybe three?). About a week or two ago PSSL listed a Crown XTi-6000 but then it was off the website later that day. I was curious and came here to see whats up and someone had already posted asking about that amp.....later that day that post magically disappeared. For some reason I searched that amp on PSSL again the other day and it was there so I took screen shots of everything. Again later that day the amp was gone from the website, but it appeared in another forum when searched on google. Some one had contacted PSSL about the amp and its disappearance. This is what they wrote back, Quote: Dear Matt, Thank you for your interest in pssl.com. That was a miss print. There is no XTI-6000. sorry for the confusion. Don't forget about the other great reasons to buy from pssl.com Giant Inventory with most orders shipped the same day they're placed!

Oh and the fact that someone took the time to photoshop XTi-6000 on the front panel and design a completely new back panel with a 20A power connector (C19/C20 IEC 16A to be exact) and different connector layout and make up specs for it. Back to the amp I read that the XTi 6000 and System Architect 1.9 will be available on the 5th, i havent heard about the HD though.
  4. How can i find out the DC output on these amps? I recently rewired my system to be more efficient by setting the amps up in parallel-mono mode as to stereo. I am lead to believe that the amps are producing to much DC current and putting my speakers in to protection mode (they have internal protection modules). I have two Community TD2212 4ohm cabs wired in parallel (1ohm load) to one Microtech1200. The communities are rated at 300wRMS, 750w Program, 40vRMS and 89v Peak. Under the MT1200 specs it should be putting out 1300w1khz power (safe to say 1040wRMS, 520 per cab) is slightly underpowered according to the specs but its more power than what they were receiving in stereo mode. When in stereo mode the amps would become hot, clip occasionally, produce a distorted output at the speakers but they would not go into protection. In parallel-mono the amps remain cool, don't clip, and produce better and louder sound, yet 3 hours into the night the speakers will all go into protection (yellow and red LEDs activate). Community calls it "IntelliSense" which is three LEDs on the front and back- Green/signal, Yellow/1st stage of protection, and Red/full protection (when the speaker is being overdriven. Is there a high crest factor on these amps? (as the manuals only give 1khz power ratings) Note* I have two different models of the MT1200 yet they both exhibit the same problems. One model has ODEP while the other doesn't (it just says supply between the two LEDs and do not vary in brightness) Thank you in advance for any advice, Ian
  5. Thank you for the quick response and the correct mathematics. I was leaning towards that option in the first place i just wanted check out a couple more opinions. Now with the addition of lights (+10A continuous) what are the chances ill be lucky enough to find two or three separate circuits (or at least someone who knows at the venue) lol. Thanks again
  6. I am currently designing a mobile rig and having trouble deciding which route to go. Currently I have 2 JBL MRX525's powered by a Xti4000. I would like to add 2 JBL MRX528S's to the rig but cant decided how to power them. Option one- Two Xti2000's bridged which would be 4000W, 55lbs, and 22A draw; Option two- Two Xti1000's bridged, 2800W, 55lbs, 21A draw; Option 3- One Xti4000 stereo, 1200W, 37lbs, and 16A (power is just the bass, weight and draw is with the Highs amp factored in). Opt1 meets the 2hour program but draws the most and weights the most, Opt2 comes close to the 100hr program, and Opt3 draws the least. Which would be the best compromise? I really don't want to under power my speakers but I would like to keep the weight and power draw down.
