In Topic: clipping stopped once amp is turned up

12 September 2016 - 08:26 AM

Appart from the off topic post about QSC...  maybe you were clipping something in your mixer.  Running it lower and having some more gain at the amp to compensate avoided this.   The gain on the amp have little to do with the issue per se.

In Topic: 8 ohm amp, with 2 different ohm subs

First, amps have no ohms per se.  They are rated to operate in some given ohms range speakers.  Most pro amp will support 8, 4 or 2 ohms loads, but 2 ohms is very taxing for the amp.

So, in your case, you could run one sub to channel 1 and the other sub to channel 2 somewhat safely, but watch for overheating if you need high output.

Hello.  You could try another set of speaker cable, then another set of speakers if you have some, to assess than it's not a problem outside of the amp.  Then, use a voltmeter to check if the voltage is droping too low when the amp is used.  However, the 8 ohms being an easy load and this amp being so efficient, I cannot see how the voltage could drop that much.

If the issue continue with other equipment and the voltage stays OK, then I think the amp should be serviced.

In Topic: XLS or XTi for hi-fi use?

I'm pretty sure the XLS uses A/D all the time, as it's part of the DriveCore process, DPS bypassed or not.  Crown call A/D the "codec".
