  1. pretty much says it in the topic!!! ... i recently found a cts600 going cheap ... not i was going to go and buy another xti1000 to run sub bass .. Meyer usw1 ... Meyer specify an amp no more than 300 watts into 8 ohms ! ... i notice this cts600 had huge damping factor .. good for tight bass! ? ... so what are the advantages or problems i can expect .. i realize this originally designed as an installation amp ... ... can it cope with life on the road! ? .. please let me know your thoughts ? regards jez
  2. Hi Again Kevin! OK very last question .. hopefully ... im confused as in band manager ... the input attenuator goes down to -80 ? so to make sure i got this right .. i will will let you know my plans here .... OK 1st ... with the xti4000 .. it is rated at 34.2db voltage gain..... to conform to the Meyer stuff im using .. it needs to have a 26db voltage gain ... so my plan is to set up in band manager software ... the input attenuator gains down either 8.0 or 8.5db to get close as i can get to the 26db needed ? is this correct .? and as for the xti1000 ... its rated at 30.5db voltage gain ... so to get it to 23db .. i will set input attenuators to - 7.5db .. i cant see any other way of doing it .. so i assume this is correct ? kind regards jez
  3. freaking awesome!!!!!!!! well done Kevin much appreciated !!!! .... does the same apply to the xti1000 .. ? kind regards Jez

  5. OK in short im using another manufacturer of speakers / processors .. they state .. for full protection to be realized from there system ... the amps must be calibrated to 26db ... ... now the xti i am using is rated at 34.2db voltage gain ... where do i set the outputs gains on the amp ... so its 26db ? correct me if im wrong .. but putting a 1 volt rms ... input into the amp ... would result in a gain of 34.2db .... now if i back of the output gain ... then that 34.2db would drop ... for that given amount of input ? so therefore turning down the amps would reduce the voltage gain ... so QUESTION IS IN SHORT .... LOL WHAT POSITION DO I NEED TO TURN DOWN THE OUTPUT GAIN OF MY CROWN XTI4000 TO GET 26db VOLTAGE GAIN ... I NOTICE THAT THE ARE 20 AVAILABLE POSITIONS FOR THE OUTPUT GAIN (VOLTAGE GAIN! ) ON THIS AMP ... DOES CROWN HAVE HIDDEN AWAY THE EXACT VOLTAGE GAIN AT EACH INCREMENT OF THE 20 INDENTS ON THE OUTPUT GAINS???? WOULD BE USEFUL I CAN TELL YA !!!! someone from crown tech please come quick ... there must be documentation around of the voltage gain at each of the 20 indents ... PLEASE GET BACK TO ME ASAP!!!!! ..... I ALSO HAVE SAME QUERY WITH REGARD TO GETTING THE XTI1000 TO A MAX AVAILABLE VOLTAGE GAIN OF 23db ???? I guess i must be the only one out there using XTI s with Meyer Sound speaker & processors also with regard to onboard processing on XTI with band manager ... can the output gain / voltage gain be set on there ... so i can keep my amps turned up full all the time ect ???
  6. please please ... could someone inform me how to get my voltage gains down to 30db or lower ... ? the spec on my xti4000 says .. it has a voltage gain of 34.2db ... much more than the 30db Meyer insist on! ? how do i get my voltage gains down to 30db or more ... i need this to be accurate to safely use the meyer processors to protect my speakers ect .. please help !!!! ? regards jez
  7. ok heres my issue in recent months i purchased an xti 4000 on ebay thru a dealer .. but i have just founf out even thou im in uk & the dealer is in uk ... he sold me an amp licensed in usa .... i really want to get my xti 4000 corrected .. so i have peace of mind but seeing as it technically a manufacturing fault .... i dont feel that i should have to send my unit all the way to usa .. to be sorted ... seeing as it is apparently not allowed for uk to deal with it ... would it be possible if crown could send me the replacement resistors in question! & i will get my electronic genius that i use .. to replace them! hoping for a fast & positive response! ... ps .. i dont really want to have to put this unit in the post ect ... help
  8. hi so if i was to tell you ... im going to be running 1 xti6000 at 4 ohm stereo = 7.4 amps or 335 watts 1 xti4000 at 8 ohm stereo = 3.4 amps or 190 watts 1 xti4000 at 4 ohm stereo = 5.8 amps or 350 watts i would probably be drawing no more than 900 watts ????? are you sure ...? so the 9 kva generator was over kill then ? .. some one said to me get 3 to 4 time more than the power you need ? that would make a 3 kva or 4 kva generator a good choice? provided it runs smooth & constant ! ? please help me people! ? jez Something does not add up with Kevin statement W(watts)= E(volts) time I(amps) so 7.4 amps time 230= 1702 watts for the XTI 6k, the XTI 4k 3.4 amps time 230 volts = 782 watts and the XTI 2k 4.4 amps time 230 volts = 1012 watts of power consumption all this @ 1/8 @ 230 volts. any further update kevin ? ... by the way kevins figures were taken from the crown xti power draw chart on line ? does this need to be corrected ????

  11. i definitely not convinced you can name them in band manager!!!!!!!!! ..... iv searched high & low sooo .. gave system architect a go & named them in there .. even thou it sooo much more confusing than band manager ! i managed to do it relatively quickly!!!! had one more look on band manager & still no joy ... system architect is not needed for what i do so i will go back to using band manager ..... but now ive named the amps specific titles in system architect ... they show as those names in band manager! yay!!!
  12. Hi ... i can confirm it just passes the original signal over ... all you do is ... link next amp ... from link outs then decide what frequencies you want each amp to do & that's it .....
  13. ok .. i have a rack of xti amps & have been using band manager ... i got a few of the amps second hand! ... anyway in band manager amp rack list ... some have been labeled by previous owner for there own use ... i have searched high & low in band manager & cant seem to find a way to rename them!!! ... i can name presets & do everything else ... but cannot rename them!!!!... help!!!! ... ive come to the conclusion ... that you cant name the amps in band manager ... i guess the people that labeled these ... used system architect!!!! ... can someone please confirm ! help!!!!!
  14. ok here goes .. i have been asked to provide sound on a float for an afternoon music carnival type situation .... i wont bore you with speakers .. but im expecting to drive an xti6000 & two xti 4000 amps ... all just into clipping .. will as close as i can get lol ... dont worry i will set the limiter on them to -3db ... now ive been on the crown website & found figures for xti4000 .. power draw ... .. but cant find one for the xti6000 ??? as i understand it ... these amps dont like saggy power! ... i intend to use the shortest length power runs & also .. speaker runs is a 5kw generator ok for this ? please let me know ... perhap you guys at crown can give me more specific info by the way xti4000 no 1 - will be running just 2 speakers! so at 8ohm xti no 2 will be running 6 speakers ... so it will be running at 2 ohm or just above .... & the xti 6000 is running 2 subs ... at 4 ohm stereo .... please note im in the uk ... so running at 240 vac ... kind regards in advance jez
  15. Hi All, I have just got my XTI6000 ... but ive noticed, most people say it needs a seperate 20 amp circuit ... im in uk .. so surely 99% of venues will only have a 13 amp ? .. how do i magic a 20 amp circuit... ???? also with the dirty great big Nema power lead ... do i assume i chop the end off & put on a regular uk plug... ? im slightly concerned ! please talk people! jez
