In Topic: XLS vs XLi series, differences?

XLI is the past, XLS is the future!  ;)

In Topic: Couple of ? Regarding RCA connection to XLS amps

08 May 2014 - 11:31 AM

I think a good, well shielded RCA cable will be OK at that distance.  Actually, I have done more distance than that with no issue.  Such a cable will be thick and somewhat less flexible.  Look for "double shileded", "100% shield" or such.

In Topic: Crown XLS1500 and Funktion-One

From the manual you posted : "Out of operating band low frequency protection is incorporated."

This means the low frequencies (bass!) are filtred outright by design in this model.  This is a top box.  Subwoofer is not only suggested, but mandatory.  You won't get any useful bass from a 10 inches speaker at party-level from any box!

If the Buttkicker needs a real subsonic filter, the XLS won't provide one.

In Topic: Keeping the Xti2000 vertically ? yay or nay?

I would say a large percentage of the heat go from the power devices to the heatsink by conduction.  I have seen designs where the heatsinks are below the power devices.  As long as the fans are working I'd say this is not much of a problem.  But I'm not a Crown engineer!  You should ask Crown.
