In Topic: Two Crown xls 2500 in stereo

10 August 2016 - 07:50 AM

Note : Any LF stereo signal (as long as there is no high frequency content) is heard as mono. Connect the LF amp as dual mode (stereo);

Connect the console to the HF amp; Then connect the HF amp to the LF amp via  both 1/4 inch entries.
HF amp : Stereo - Xover with high pass; LF : Bridge - Xover with low pass (not sure how its going to sound! Not use Xover?).

Try this out :
1)   Hold in the ‘Mode/Menu’ button to access the menu – The display should read – AMP MODE <MORE>
2)   Press the ‘Mode/Menu’ button to access the first menu to set the amp for Stereo, Bridge or Y-Input mode
3)   Press the ‘Mode/Menu’ button again to access the second menu to set the amp for Bypass, lowpass, highpass or X-over
4)   Press the ‘Next’ button to cycle through the to the BYPASS setting (if the amp is currently set for Lowpass, you will need to press the ‘Next’ button 3 times)
5)   Press the ‘Mode/Menu’ button to exit the selection window

This will return the amplifier to a stereo / full bandwidth output mode (factory default).

Hello,

From my perspective, you're doing the right things! That's a strange operation. Stay tuned...

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

05 August 2016 - 08:10 AM

What type of amp is this : For home use or for 'gigs'? :)
For home use, two ohms is quite low and can affect the amp. Watch out for thermal overloads! :)
If the amp is of the 'professionl' type, such as Crown, it can handle two ohms. Same precaution as for home use, watch out for thermals!

In Topic: ITECH- 6000 acting up

Hello L.,
1. 3 + 3 warranty : Initially, Crown warranties products for three years; You can purchase extra warranty 'protection' (well, at one time Crown offered this product!) for three more years, for a total of six years. Usually, the warranty starts on the day of purchase of the amp. Do you still have the original bill of sales? Then, start of with the sale's date. Probably, the warranty period has elapsed.
2. If the 50p cable (with the black header) doesn't come with the bead of glue, then I highly suggest that you replace this cable.
The p/n is : 140367-1, CABLE, 50P ITECH CTS (NEW);
3. Updates : Do you have System Architect (old and possibly discontinued) or Audio Architect? It can be downloaded via HiQnet : http://hiqnet.harmanpro.com/
I hope this helps!
