Crest Audio CM 2208 Overview

The Crest Audio CM 2208 8-Channel Professional Installation Amplifier from Peavey features an amplification architecture providing a host of user benefits. These include simplified operation and use in multiple applications, as well as unsurpassed sonic quality and flexible power.

This equipment incorporates 8-channel (CM 2208-AB/DV) units (channels are independent). A host of applications benefit from the use of multiple channel amplification, including bars, clubs, and restaurants, video conferencing systems, hotels, industrial installations, and more. One amplifier for multiple applications provides expansion opportunities and flexibility.

The internal components of the CM 2208 are selected for premium quality and proven durability. Each modular subassembly is pre-tested, and the assembled CM amplifier receives a rigorous “hot room” burn-in before thorough final checkout on precision test equipment.

16-gauge steel chassis
Front-to-side cooling
