We thought this amp only has one speed -- does it behave differently than you expected?

NO, I am pretty sure it is a two speed fan, as I know the XTI 1200 has two speeds,   I did have one working hard one night (the 500 and not this one) and the fan did kick into hight speed

Admittedly this amp isn't our original design and we aren't intimately familiar with all aspects of it...however, would like to help however I can.  Schematic is attached.

Based on a british C-Audio design.

Like the C-Audio/Crown Pulse series, the XS have 2-speed fans. The XS fans are controlled from the computer chip and alter with temperature...when they're working properly.
