  1. Thanks. I'll get it looked at.
  2. Thanks. Thought so, just hoping for the best. Update: I hooked it up to a board at home to check before going out to another job. This time the sound was quiet & fuzzy for a few minutes--until it all kicked in at once! Fan still not working, operator still puzzled. Would appreciate any advice.

  5. Hi! My xls 602 quit on me at an outdoor gig. It was powering the main tops in stereo--each side had a jbl soundfactor 1-15 and a yamaha club 4 series 1-15, so we are looking at 4 ohms per side. (my CE 2000 was powering the main subs, and my xls 202 powered the monitors) I had just gotten it all set up, and was soundchecking the first band, around 11:45 am, temperature could not have been more than 70 or so. The main out faders on my mackie board are up to about 50%, and the individual channels up to about 25%. Brought up the mandolin, added the guitar, added the bass, and everything is fine. As soon as I bring up the drums & he hits the kick, the mains instantly quit on me. The fault light was on, so I tried shutting down & re-starting. Same result. Then I saw that one of the two fans was not working. So I replaced the amp with a spare to get through the day. When I got home & checked the amp, both channels worked fine. I couldn't REALLY test it indoors in a small room because I won't get many more gigs if I go deaf. But I noticed the fan still wasn't spinning, so I am wondering if it faulted due to heat. The rack case was in the sun, but nothing was warm to the touch at the time--and my other Crowns never blinked all day, sitting in that same rack through the heat of the afternoon. I know that some Crowns have fans that only come on as needed, & others run continuously, so I am not sure if the fan is the problem or if I am looking at something more serious. Electicity was coming from a gas powered generator supplied by the city. Don't have any specs on that, but I can say that it was a LOT more heavy duty than the one I had run the whole system on two weeks before with no trouble. I have limited electronics background, and feel comfortable replacing the fan if that is all it needs, but don't have the gear or knowhow to check for faulty electronic parts. Advice? Thanks!
