XTi 1000 meter light question.

This amp is powering my highs which are JBL VXR 932 in bi amp.
Any ideas? (Like ribbon cable???)

Interesting issue, I thought the XTi were two completely separate amps in one box. Why is it that channel 1's meter can see the higher frequencies and channel 2's meter can't. Cheaper meter on channel 2?
I don't really expect a reason, its just that I really like the Crown brand name and I'm worried these XTi's (with all the issues, recalls, ribbon cable ) is going to change my mind.
So the Band Manager is just relaying what the meters are doing? And that's why I'm seeing the same thing on Band Manager?
I built a new system around the dbx PA+ because I read about how you can Auto EQ a room with the RTA mic and can quickly have a great sounding system. I bought the JBL VRX speakers, and the amps JBL recommended and then found out the PA+ really can't Auto EQ a room that easy and you still have to do it by ear. Now I have an amp that I have to overlook a meter not working on one side. I'm a bit disappointed.
Wonder if the XTi2's will have the same problem.
It is nice that you guys are here helping us with our issue though.
Thanks for replying Kevin.

Also this filtered/clamped signal is fed into the micro where the internal ADC takes a 10-bit sample every 50us. The firmware does quite a bit of filtering and processing on this signal to avoid noise and keep the led from flickering too much. We had some problems early on with lots of HF noise on the 2k and 4k. This forced us to overcompensate. This is the biggest reason you see iffy performance with higher frequency signals.
We spent a lot of time tweaking the circuit and firmware so it would work for audio. If you are using a sine wave,Ö. yeah it does not work as well. But that was a tradeoff that was made.
Thanks for the feedback. We always like to hear what users are saying good and bad.
