Hi,

i just sold all my crappy gear and bought back a DAC, crown XTI 1002 amp and JBL studio speakers,

i never set up or played around with that amp, and i would like to know how the setting should be,

speakers have a crossover built in, and are rated for 4 ohms and 200 watt continuos, anything i have to do?

any help would be awesome!

Well, first connect everything, the amp comes preconfigured for stereo operation without any equalization or other parameter. This should work well for you :)

Now you need to listen and see if you need additional configurability then just download AudioArchitect or BandManager2 (free from Harman pro web site) and cofigure away :)

ahh, looks simple,

whats the difference between the 2 programs that you mentioned. i tried the presets that my amp has, but it seems like I'm just guessing and speakers sound boomy.

BandManager2 speaks to one amp at a time while AudioArchitect is for designing much bigger rigs. What presets does your amp have? Did you buy it used?

i bought it brand new on ebay, amp has 50 presets, just guessing as i'm trying them out, i figured there would be a chart that would help me find what i was looking for, but band manager2 will work for me, i have one amp and 2 speakers.

To the best of my knowledge the presets are supposed to be empty, waiting to be filled by you.

If the amp is new and the speakers sound boomy then that's the sound of those speakers unequlized. You can add equalization via BM2 program, if it makes them sound better to you then that's the correct place to do it.
