In Topic: Is the Limiter in an XLS Series amp the same thing as a Compressor?

17 June 2014 - 02:19 AM

Your efforts involved with that explanation were not misguided, and they were step-by-step right on. Thank you for that.
As far as the amp-matching, I'm going to let that question rest for now and read some other posts on the subject. If I have something specific I need clarity on, I'll post a nice, juicey question. :unsure:

My last questions (for a while)
1.) As far as the output degradation at 4 ohms: does that mean it would be even worse at 2 ohms?
2.) Why am I seeing ads for a Crown NXLS and also for an XLS?

Hey thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. Not just mine, but the hundreds of others you have taken the time to answer too. You seem to really take an interest in helping people out.

Hey thanks for the quick response. I was wondering how many days would pass before I heard from anyone. Yipee!
To make sure I understand you (and referencing the scenario in my post):
1.) if I have the limiter on in the case of the XLS 1000 and 500W RMS speaker, there will be no clipping with the XLS, having the channel 1 level all the way up?
2.) never occurred to me to re-do a CD that somebody hands me on the job. I knew I could re-master it, but never thought doing it on the spot. Thx; I will make that a standard practice. I always assumed, when they were handing it to me that they knew what they were doing when they made the CD. Always find out when it's too late.
3.) have read what you wrote about Crest Factor almost word for word more than a dozen times, still don't get it. I suppose there's too much terminology and signal/electrical concepts that I haven't grasped yet.

After I posted this, I started reading more of the endless amount of posts and answers.
I read in one of the posts that the sound is degraded in 4 ohm bridged mode of the XLS 1000 and XLS 1500 for subs. Is that really true?

In Topic: crown xls 2500/1500 in crossover mode can i run full range to tops?

You have mentioned two different amps in your question, both the XLS 2500 and the XLS 1500. It would be very helpful in answering your question if you would include how you have these hooked up to your speakers. If I were to assume a hook-up, I would say that you have the 2500 tied to your sub(s) and the 1500 dedicated to your "tops"?

Also, to be able to provide you with a more precise answer, it would be helpful to know what speakers you are running your sound through.

*And then again, this might just be a dead issue considering the date of this post.
