Drives my Klipsch RP280s beautifully! By:
I had two Klispch RP280F towers that my A/V reciever wasnt driving very well. So I started searching for home audio amps and came across this smoking deal! This thing drives my Klipsch tower speakers very well. I didnt even know what I was missing out on until I hooked it up! I am very pleased with this purchase!
Using this for a speaker system on a submarine By:
Exactly what I was looking for
Awesome but too heavy! By:
This amp is a beast! I use them with a pair of. Behringer b215s amazing tones and tons of power to spare.Only gripe is they are too Damn heavy. One of these amps weighs almost 30lbs. The XLS versions weigh only 9lbs but are more expensive. Imho its worth the extra money for the reduced weight.If you are running a stage rig where you need mains, plus wedge monitors you're going to need more than one amp in your rack.Good luck loading that in and out of venues, up stairs or tracking them through grass or across a busy street, because the manager of the venue wont move his car, or the venue has no dedicated load in lanes.Bottom line great product, but buy the more expensive and lighterweight XLS MODEL
Cinco estrellas By:
Este producto bastante buena calidad lo recomiendo 100%
Works Great. Just What I Needed. Runs Hot. By:
I had a Sonos burn out. The outdoor speakers were too powerful for it. This is great. I now have an amazon echo going into it as the source and this has enough power to really pump up the volume on my outdoor speakers. Very happy. Good value compared to other units.
Suitable for home use By:
Excellent build for the money
Awesome power By:
Awesome amp!! Great power, good price. Went great with my setup
Beautiful Amp By:
Very powerful
It Works Amazing! By:
I bought 2 new crown amps, this XLi2500 and I also bought the new XLS2502 Crown amp. The XLi2500 is a Class A/B amp and weighs 29 Lbs. The XLS 2502 is a Class D amp and weighs only 11 Lbs it also has a built in cross over. I use the XLi2500 for my 2 18" Subs and the XLS2502 for my 2 15" mids with tweeter horns and use a dbx 223xs digital crossover to seperate the lows and the highs, It Works Amazing!

I picked this up to replace my power amp section of my 15 year old Nad c370 integrated Amp, It was plug and play and it soundsas good as the finals that use to work in the Nad.. The only negative the power amp has is no 12v trigger to turn it on with the preamp (c370).Happy I purchased it, and it was cheaper than repair cost for the finals in the Nad

Five Stars By:
It's excellent, I can't believe, !!
Fast delivery! By:
Great amp!
Great amplifiers for my sound rig By:
GREAT amplifier. I wound up buying three! I wish they would go on sale again! The built in crossovers allow me to bi-amplify my 3-way JBLs. Best investment I ever made. I need two more. So Amazon, get cracking on those sale prices.
Light and Small; Love It. By:
I bought this amp to power our (4-piece band) 2 stage monitors; vocals only. We're not loud so we use only a tiny part of its available power. If my powered main speaker(s) failed, I'd use the stage monitors as mains, and this amp would drive them well enough; we'd get paid. It's very light, shallow, and sounds great. Class D amps are a boon to gigging mankind. I've only had it 6 months, but it's in a rack by itself, and I expect it to last at least as long as I need it to.
Great amps- I have 4 XLS DriveCore amps By:
Needed more punch for my PA system so I purchased two open box XLS1000 to run bridged at 700 watts at 8 ohm to run each of my main speakers. Took my XLS1500 and now run it bridged at 4 ohms to power my twin 18" subs and the XLS2000 is bridged at 8 ohms - used to power my new B-52 V3 Folded Horn. Unreal sound now. Just remember you need to rewire the Neutrix on the amp side to benefit from the bridged power.
Works great at a 8ohm or 4ohm By:
Very clean amp. Works great at a 8ohm or 4ohm load

Great Product By:
I needed an amp for my Church. I did want or thought I needed to spend this much money on an amp. But someone that knew better than I strongly suggested I get this one. So glad I did. Just what we needed.

Love QSC By:
New version of my favorite amp! Still the same, still very nice!
Certainly makes my BFM Tuba30 sub pack a serious wallop ... By:
Certainly makes my BFM Tuba30 sub pack a serious wallop. Not too much else to say here, since I haven't had a chance to use the bridged mode yet, and I handle all filtering and crossover stuff in my driverack.But it certainly puts some power through my subs, that's for dern sure.
Great Price. By:
Excellent amplifier.
