What is the CLIP Indicator on my amp telling me?

Crown CE Series, Contractor Series (CH/CL Series) and K Series amplifiers feature a Clip Indicator for each channel. These amplifiers also have internal compressor circuitry to prevent excessive clipping. When amplifier clipping reaches the point that the compressor turns on, the Clip Indicator also turns on to alert the operator that the input signal is being compressed. When this condition occurs, it is best to turn down the input signal level to allow the amplifier to pass a clean, uncompressed signal to the speakers.
