Crown Audio XLS1502 Overview

The Crown XLS 1502 Stereo Power Amplifier offers 525W at 4 Ohm in a lightweight chassis using the company's ultra-efficient DriveCore Class D amplification platform. The amplifier includes built-in DSP with a dedicated band pass filter per channel, an integrated PureBand Crossover System, and Peakx Limiters to provide maximum output while protecting your speakers.

For inputs, the rear panel includes a pair of XLR-3F connectors, 1/4" and RCA inputs for flexible connections with a selectable input sensitivity of either 1.4 Vrms or 0.775 Vrms. Outputs are provided on both speakON and binding post connectors.

You can set the amplifier's sleep mode for a designated period of time without having to press a button, as well as turn off all LED indicators except for clip and thermal to reduce distractions in dark venues. A security mode can be engaged to disable menu buttons, which can be locked and unlocked by entering a combination code. Full system reset allows for factory settings to be restored and a remote power trigger allows you to turn the unit on and off.

question

Are the 1/4 inputs balanced or unbalanced?
Asked by: Dan C.
You may want to down load the data sheet or manual for the 1502. I can't say for sure but I think they are balanced.

question

I understand the term DriveCore Class D amplification platform but is there a difference, in the sound, between this and the one with the toroidal transformer?I have both of them and the second seems to have a better sound. Am i right?
Asked by: Nelson H. G.
Nelson, A Class D amp uses a chip instead of a transformer primarily as a means to reduce weight. However, in the last 10-15 years, Class D amps have made great strides and now boast less distortion, better frequency response, and more efficiency than the sort of Class A/B amps with transformers that you mentioned. This means that the XLS 1502 will deliver more accuracy and better overall sound than older counterparts.

question

Harmonic distortion is specified at &gt;0.5%. How much greater or Is this a typo?
Asked by: Anonymous
That is a TYPO. It should read &lt;0.5% (Info from the Crown XLS 1002 Manual).
