The CDi DriveCore Series is a direct result of our GREENEDGE environmental initiative that increases performance and acoustic qualities while dramatically reducing energy consumption. With the DriveCore chip replacing over 500 parts, it requires far fewer materials while easily delivering more than 90% efficiency. The Powersave feature provides additional energy savings with an Auto-Standby mode that powers down the amp to consume less than 1W. Plus, recycled cardboard shipping boxes further reduce our carbon footprint.



Since the introduction of the first IQ system in 1992, Crown has deployed more networked audio systems than all other amplifier manufacturers combined. This pedigree continues today with the CDi DriveCore amplifiers. Adhering to exact TCP/IP Ethernet standards and equipped with HiQnet™ technology, the Network and Dante Series amplifiers can live on a standard network without the hassle of proprietary switches or hardware. And by following standard protocol, large systems of 400+ amplifiers can be quickly deployed on a single network backbone without any special considerations.


Crown’s legendary DSP, combined with CDi DriveCore true rack density design, provides the flexibility and design tools for wide-ranging jobs while outperforming many of the world’s stand-alone loudspeaker processors. With LevelMAX™, input and output EQ, delay, pilot tone monitoring and tone generators, DSP-enabled CDi DriveCore amplifiers are packed with features that can be used worldwide. Combining DSP with network monitoring and control gives consultants, engineers and end users enormous flexibility.
