    Crown Audio CDI1000 reviews

    CDi 1000 Two-Channel Commercial Amplifier (500W/Channel at 4 Ohms, 70V/140V) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing flexibility Amazing flexibility. I'm using a single CDI 1000 amp to run a string mono of 70v outdoor speakers AND a massive outdoor 8ohm sub. Plenty of power but the magic is in the DSP chip that allows you to EQ and cross over the amp however you desire. When I first installed, the default internal crossovers were used and then I hooked up a laptop with the free Crown System Architect Software and then--WOW. After every thing was EQ'd and the crossover tweaked it's like listening to live outdoor music which is exaxtly what I was going for. *Note that the amp is designed to use balanced XLR inputs so you will lose 6db with an unbalanced RCA siganl or you can use a Pro Match to convert RCA-->XLR and regain full output*

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic little amp I've installed 4 of these units on 2 softball field press boxes and for a boot camp and archery range on a university campus for announcements and background music. I paired them with some jbl outdoor speakers 8 and 12 version and it is a wonderful setup. both owners are in love with them. they were producing absolutely NO hiss whatsoever. very very good amp.
