      Comments about Crown Audio 1160A 1 Channel, 160W Amplifier:

      I used 2 of these on a recent 70v commercial audio setup and I've gotta say they've worked like a charm. The client was very happy with the overall sound quality and simplicity of the whole thing (hard to mess it up with only a volume knob in the front) and I was comforted knowing that with 2 of these things hooked up to the system I still would have room to expand, in the case they asked to install more speakers.

      This system is going to be running in a restaurant/bar so it'll have to take quite a beating. Given my history with Crown Audio products I'm sure it'll be up to the task.

      I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about this unit. Setup was easy, the sound quality was good (given that this was a commercial setup so I'm not comparing it to my sound studio or something like that...), and the unit is durable enough to withstand some abuse from the client (he likes to crank it up).

      If you're looking to power your commercial audio setup then you need not look further than this.
