  • 1Description

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.

    Crown Audio XLS1502 reviews

    XLS 1502 Stereo Power Amplifier (525W at 4 Ohm) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, silent, and Great Sound Quality! While I cannot attest to the longevity of this product since I've only had it for a month, it has met or exceed my expectations in all other aspects. It's amazing how such a small & lightweight amplifier can produce such balanced & crystal clear sound. I've used this amplifier with three different sets of speakers and it has made a noticeable improvement in sound quality compared to other power amps in this price range I've used in the past. While my main use case for this product is in live sound applications, I wouldn't hesitate to use it for a home theatre or HI-FI setup as it's so small and virtually silent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great amp, nice price Great, update from XLS Series 1. I have upgraded from the XLS1000 for my bass rig. I needed a little more headroom so I opted for this XLS1502 and I'm glad I did. The feature I find most useful is the added selection of frequencies in the High Pass filter section. The selections go down to I think 33Hz. I'm using the HP filter at 38.5 Hz which is about as low as my 15 in. speaker can can reproduce. Another nice newly added feature is the adjustable display and panel light settings. You can now adj the front panel indicators/lights to your liking. This is my 3rd Light weight digital amp, and my favorite for features, ease of use and clean power. B&H got it to me very quickly. They got it on the truck same day (hour) that I ordered it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, Quiet and Powerful I purchased this amplifier to replace my Crown DC 300 that had developed some distortion after 41 years in service with no maintenance whatsoever. That's correct, 41 years. Naturally, I chose to purchase another Crown product. The XLS 1502 is a very capable product - plenty of power and a clean sound. Compared to the 30 lb. plus weight of the DC 300, the XLS 1502 at 10 lbs. is a welcome relief on my back. I use the XLS 1502 in a home stereo system. The 1502 has greater power output and cost me about 50% less to purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect gym/church installation amp One of these drives 2 paralleled pairs of Behringer B212 speakers to ungodly levels without noise or distortion. Always stays cool, can't hear the fan at all even standing near the rack. Couldn't ask for a better amp for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am sold on Class D amplifiers Just got the Crown XLS 1502, and have been auditioning it all day. I went from Denon POA-4400A monoblock amps (manufactured 1991) to the Crown. The Class AB monoblocks produce 160 watts at 8 ohms, and weigh in at a hefty 23 pounds each. The Crown weighs only 8.6 pounds, and is a lot easier to move around than the monoblocks. Pros: The additional 3 db of headroom is nice to have in a 400 square foot garage. I don't see myself actually using 300 watts, but the additional headroom is a plus to avoid speaker clipping. The Crown produces little heat, and the fan is inaudible. My audition included a variety of DDD compact discs. Preamplifier (Pioneer SPEC 1 manufactured 1981) set to tone OFF. The Crown does what a good amplifier should: percussion clean and crisp, vocals uncolored, bass frequencies distinct with plenty of thump. This is my second Class D amplifier (Sony A/V Receiver inside the house), and I am sold on Class D amplifiers: great power, runs cool and considerable weight savings. The Denon monoblocks served me well for 26 years. Let's see if the Crown XLS 1502 lasts 26 years.
