CTs 8200 (discontinued)

Eight-channel, 200W Power Amplifier


Crown’s CTs Series amplifiers provide exceptional performance, flexibility and value for installed sound applications. CTs Series amplifiers feature independent selection of high and low impedance operation for a specific channel, plus power levels and features that were carefully chosen to match the requirements of fixed install design. Easy integration with HiQnet™ and CobraNet™ allows CTs amplifiers to deliver a comprehensive lineup of monitoring and control features along with digital audio transport for an award-winning digital audio solution.

Recommended for: Installed Sound.

  • High power density. All two channel models and four channel model in a 2RU chassis, eight channel model in a 3RU chassis
  • Crown Switching Power Supply for lighter weight
  • Selectable "Constant-Voltage" or low-impedance (4/8 ohm) operation per channel on 2-channel models, and per channel-pair on 4-and 8-channel models
  • 100V direct outputs on CTs 2000, CTs 3000, CTs 4200, and CTs 8200
  • Legendary Crown class-I (BCA) and AB+B output topologies offer the best in amplifier reliability
  • 4- and 8-channel models offer perfect independent power solutions for multi-zoned systems· "FIT" (Fault Isolation Topology) circuitry on 4- and 8-channel models isolates fault conditions without affecting neighboring channels
  • Comprehensive array of indicators provide accurate diagnostics
  • Two-channel models are fully PIP2-compatible. Multi-channel models accept MC accessory modules.
