  1. Hi Dakos,

    I am planning to use the 1/4 inch inputs of the Crown XLS1502 to send signal to a powered subwoofer.  The manual says that it can be used as a loop-thru signal.  Is it safe? I am planning to use a TRS to RCA cable.   Thank you.

  2. Actually there is, or rather it emulates it the way Deromax explained, but it depends on what you use to play the video, so please let us know.
  3. Xti4000 volume knobs

    Watch this video and try to learn more about whole system proper gain structure. I believe this is what you're looking for. If I'm wrong post another reply here with what info you're missing.
  4. The difference between the 2002 and the 4002 will be negligible at best. Just use the 2002 and if it's not enough we can discuss upgrading options that would give you what you're looking for. Did you connect to the amp with a laptop? Do you have Audio Architect installed on this laptop? If not, make sure you have a computer with this free program and write me in the reply so we may move ahead into programming your amp to work with your speaker.
  5. Crown XLS2500 Stereo bypass

    That sounds like a good plan. If the DSP in the XLS is enough for your intended usage then it will work great.

    You need to understand these are not Volume knobs, they are gain knobs. Which means that if you lower the gain, all it means is that you need more on the input side to get the maximum rated amp output. What are you using to push your signal to the amp?
  7. Sorry for the late addition to the thread but at +30db out of the mixer, I bet you were clipping the amplifiers input. Buy lowering the mixers output to +20db, you eliminated the clipping. If you really want to know what was clipping you need to either connect an oscilloscope to the output of the amp and start pushing every component until you see the waves getting clipped. And for the cheaper older way... Buy the Rane Gane, for $50 you get one of the best tools for eliminating clipping. All the best.

    I will not say all but pretty much most new amps that use higher class amp topology don't have real bypass. All it does is put the DSP in off position.
  9. Hello Göran Ekelöf, Here is a very good example on how to configure the itech series limiter. Just put your speakers numbers and recalculate. http://www.crownaudio.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=4431 You should use the Beyma Program power as the Peak setting for the amp. You should use the Beyma power capacity/2 as the continuous power setting for the amp. So for the 18G50 Peak=1500W, Continuous=375W. For the 18P1200Nd-N Peak=2400W, Continuous=600W. Avi
  10. Dear Essclub, Some PA rigs are more robust then others, but usually gear is being damaged due to unskillful sound tech's, that's the number one reason. If you can write also which speakers you plan on connecting then may be we can figure out how to make your rig a bit more tolerant to user errors. I'm not a 100% sure if the signal is powerful enough but yes, you should connect the jumper XLR's to connect more amps. Avi
  11. Mono to stereo

    The CH1+CH2 and the bridge mono are two separate settings/ You should run both left and right signal cables from the console to the left and right inputs on the amp. Then configure the input mode to CH1+CH2, then configure the output mode to Bridge-Mono and use the mono cable that you should have built. Avi
  12. If you have no amps you should definitely consider the SRX800 series!! You need i-Tech level amps to run this type of gear so you're looking at 4000$ for used first gen amps vs about 8000$ for newer HD series amps in the US.
  13. What amps do you have now? You might as well get the powered version of the STX. http://www.jblpro.com/www/products/portable-market/srx800-series#.VP091PmUewg Avi
