Crest Audio 01000590 Overview

  • 1Description

The 2RU Pro200 Series Pro 8200 Professional Power Amplifier from Crest Audio is a 4500W (bridged) power-rated amplifier. This unit features extensive protection circuitry, designed to optimize operation when working with difficult loads and power conditions. The Automatic Clip Limiting (ACL) circuit helps to protect drivers, maintain sonic integrity, and ensure trouble-free operation into loads as low as 2Ω. You can select stereo, parallel, or bridged-mono operation modes via the rear panel mode selector switch. The front panel recessed stepped attenuators allow for individual gain adjustment for each channel. When operating in the bridged mode, both attenuators must be in the same position so that the speaker load is equally shared between the channels.

The Pro 8200 uses two variable-speed DC fans with back-to-front airflow, to maintain a lower overall operating temperature which results in a longer output transistor life. This amplifier features AutoRamp circuitry, which raises the signal level gradually after the output relay closes. This will prevent speaker damage if there is a high signal level at the inputs. The IGM (Instantaneous Gain Modulation) circuit is designed to monitor the speaker's load, and detect conditions which may over-stress the output devices. This allows safe operation into nominal 2Ω speaker loads. The Pro 8200 power amplifier features ACL, DC, Temp, Signal, and Active safeguards, all referenced on the front panel with LED indicators.

ACL (Active Clip Limiting) prevents speaker damage by providing gentle gain reduction when the signal approaches the clipping threshold.
