Crown Audio DCI 2300N Overview

  • 1Description

The DriveCore Install 2|300N 2-Channel Network Amplifier 300 Watts x 2 from Crown Audio is capable of producing 300 watts of output per channel at 4 or 8 ohms or 70 or 100 volts rms. It is compatible with Harman's BLU-Link digital audio transport and accepts digital inputs via its rear-panel RJ-45 connectors. This digital control allows for networked monitoring, recallable presets, and the setup of secondary inputs that engage if the primary inputs fail. The 2|300N also has built-in DSP capabilities including limiting, input/output EQs, delay, and a matrix mixer.

Its two channels can be bridged for powering higher power applications such as a subwoofer. The 2|300N also has channel-independent high- or low-impedance output that is selectable from the rear-panel DIP switches. This allows you to integrate the amplifier into a variety of different setups. Each of its 2 channels additionally features independent attenuators with an attenuation range from 0 to -80dB.

The front panel of the 2|300N provides a series of system indicators, including level and signal, ready, clip, thermal, and fault alerts for quick visual monitoring of the system. The unit can be integrated into a control system for powering on and off as well as engaging its sleep mode for saving energy when not in use. The 2|300N is rackmountable and requires 2 rack units of space

Network Monitoring & Control
Monitoring, control and audio manipulation are provided with the HiQnet protocol that's over standard TCP/IP. Remotely see how all networked DCi amplifiers are performing and control them as needed. In addition, this allows Audio Architect software and the Powered by Crown app to work with DCi amplifiers.
Programmable General Purpose Input/Output Ports
GPIO ports can be configured in many different ways, such as volume controls, recall presets, or to report errors to a master computer
DSP includes LevelMAX limiters, input/output EQ, delay, matrix mixer, and speaker line monitoring
Direct Drive Constant Voltage
You can use smaller-gauge wiring to drive the speakers using either 70Vrms or 100Vrms. With no need for a step-up transformer at the output, the DCi produces audio more efficiently
Channel-Independent Hi-Z/Low-Z Selection
Drive either one or two speakers in low-Z mode, or literally hundreds of speakers in hi-Z mode (70 Vrms or 100 Vrms). This means design flexibility since DCi powers all loads on a channel-by-channel basis
Bridgeable Channel Pairs
The DriveCore Install Series channels are bridgeable, even in 100 Vrms mode, allowing them to be used to for higher-power applications like subwoofers
Remote On/Off Interface
The 2|300N can be integrated into a control system for remote on/off control
Efficient Cooling Design
Efficient internal cooling fans provide airflow to the most heat-generating parts. Incorporating the fans into the amplifier brick design maximizes cooling while minimizing wasted energy and noise
Auto Standby
The 2|300N automatically goes into sleep mode after 30 minutes of no input signal
TLC Protection
The amp has built-in protection from excessive heat by applying gain reduction when necessary
Advanced Protection Circuits
Amplifier and loads are protected against shorted outputs, DC, mismatched loads, overheating, over- or under-voltage, and high-frequency overload
