Crown Audio CTs-600 - Two-Channel Power Amplifier - 300 Watts per Channel at 8 Ohms

B&H # CRCTS600 Mfr # CTS600
You Pay: $1,297.92

The Crown CTs-600 is a 2-Channel power amplifier housed in a 2-space rackmount frame, offering power levels and features meant to serve fixed installation sound applications. This amplifier is notable for a completely independent array of switches and indicators for each channel, including high and low impedance operation, input sensitivity, high pass filters, and an advanced level of well designed overload protection circuitry.

High-power, 2-channel, 2U rackmount amplifier for installed sound applications
Switching power supply lowers overall amplifier weight
Direct 70V/100V/140V/200V constant-voltage or 2/4/8 Ohm low-impedance operation
Independently selectable Input Sensitivity switching per channel
Rear panel Programmable Input Processor(PIP2) connector accepts accessory expansion modules for specific custom installation requirements
Thermal Level Control(TLC) circuitry protects amplifier from overheating; engages input compressor, dynamically reducing input gain when individual channels overheat
Junction Temperature Simulation(JTS) quick-activation circuitry limits drive level of output devices to tolerable range if excess power is required; protects output transistors without shutting down channel
Continuously variable fan cooling; venting with front-to-rear forced airflow
Removable balanced terminal block input connectors with "Y" switch
Switchable high pass filter per channel, eliminates step down transformer saturation in distributed systems
Complete array of front panel function and warning indicator LED's for each channel
Complete array of rear panel function and filter switches
Power on indicator flashes when AC mains are under or over voltage
Advanced protection circuitry covers shorted outputs, DC, mismatched loads, overheating, high frequency overloads, voltage fluctuation and internal faults.

      Comments about Crown Audio CTs-600 - Two-Channel Power Amplifier - 300W @ 8 Ohms:

      I use this amplifier in a large commercial system as a replacement for older amps (20yrs) as they fail.
      To date I have installed approximately 20 without a failure of any kind.
