  1. Last year I had a 5000 go down. The IOC light came on and stayed, even though there was not signal. It did not pass signal. I took it to a local repair shop, who then sent it to crown without telling me. Meanwhile, I put a spare 5000 in the rack and life went on. The other amp came back, and I left it in the box for nearly a year. I pulled it out to use it for a show yesterday, and low and behold it still does the same thing. The amp cycles on, both green lights come on, but ch 1 stays on. I dont want to send it back to crown and pay another $370 to get it fixed again. Is this something simple, or do I have to send it back?
  2. Hi. I run a showroom which uses one crown Ma5000 for the subs. The amp is pushing 4 EAW 850 Dual 18" Cabs, 2 per side in stereo mode. cabs are daisy chained and are 4 ohms each. I will rock the house with 1200 in the showroom. I have a crown 5002. I have tried to push 4 EV MTL1X Cabs the same way, but I get a protect light at low volumes. I in turn, have had to run one EV sub per side and use two amps. What am I doing wrong? The only big difference I see is the AC. The casino uses a larger circuit.
  3. IT6000 vs 5002VLZ

    Hi, I am using a crossover, no pip card. I dont think the limiters are on in the 6K. If they were on, would that make it peak early? Using the subs on the 6K, I think the impedance was 5 ohms. The amp was set to 4000 watts per side, so Im guessing the limiter is of, since I dont think the amp will push more than that. I will check on th e input voltage setting, which is the best one to use universally? I have notices the impedance changing when running the system, I figured after that, the impedence was measured only when signal passed. Sometimes when you stop signal, it might me 30 ohms one side, 4 the other. Thanks for your help. I have talked to customer service, but they really didnt help.

    I didnt even know the 5002 would operate on 220. If that is so, Thats how Id like to run it. Soo. Does any body work here?
  5. IT6000 vs 5002VLZ

    Me too! I was thinking about buying another, I really like the weight and the features. The difference in sound was tremendous, pushing the same load. I actually was boosting the lows with the crossover, with the 6000 pushing them. I switched amps, same setup, with 6000 on tops. With this configureation, I had to lower the boost I needed for the 6000 on lows, and boost the level that the 6000 was pushing to the highs. I actually had to lower the input to the 5002 pushing the subs, as they were overpowering. I talked to a rep at crown, he keeps giving me short possibilites, but no solution. I didn't realize that the peak light on the 5002 was green, like the signal light. That kind of sucks. Either it has been peaking all this time or it never has, I really dont know!!!!
  6. IT6000 vs 5002VLZ

    Tonight, I tried the 5002 on the subs and the 6000 on the tops, only 1 T252+ cabinet per side. The 5002 had way more output than the IT6000. The 6000 did ok on tops, but I had to boost my crossover for it to keep up with the 5002 on subs. I hope that maybe my settings are wrong. That wouls really suck to have to try to sell that 6000 on ebay or something!
  7. Hi. I recently purchased a IT6000, and really like the features of the amp. I have thorouly read the manual, but still have some questions. I am using the amp to push 2 Electro Voice MTL1-X subs, stereo mode, the cabinets are showing to be 5ohms on the display screen. I moved the 5002, which was pushing the subs, to the tops. I am pushing 2 EV T252+'s per side, stereo mode. I put the switching amp on the subs for two reasons: More power I've read that switching amps were not as good on high frequencies. Should I put it on the tops? I think it would be overkill, considering the price I paid for it. I noticed the 6000 clipping last night, and in my opinion, it should not have been. The 5002 will push the same level, and I never see a blink of a red light. The clip light did not stay on, just short flashes on most of the drum kicks. Only pushing 1 sub per side(2 18's per side) in stereo mode should not be stressing the amp at the levels I am pushing it. This leaves me to believe that either there is something wrong with the amp, or I have it set up wrong. It is in stereo mode, dual input, but I have not gone into the other settings. I was searching for settings that might help me, but have been unsuccessful. ALSO! at the end of the night last night I went though the settings when the show was over, and there were none, but I found something strange: The impedance had changed. Channel one was now at 2 ohms and Channel 2 was at 6 ohms? Im puzzled, and you help is greatly appreciated! Thanks Daniel
