document How do I wire my Speakon connector?
Some Crown amplifiers feature Neutrik Speakon connectors for output wiring. Speakons allow both channels of amplifier output to be wired to the...
document What is Crown's warranty?
Please for specifics about Crown's warranty.
document I want to send my Crown amplifier to the factory for service. What should I do?
Please for specific instructions for obtaining Crown factory service.
document What are PIP Modules?
PIP stands for Programmable Input Processor. These are optional modules that can be plugged into any PIP-compatible amplifier. There are a variety of...
document Which Crown amplifiers are IQ compatible?
Any Crown PIP-compatible amplifier is also IQ compatible; however, since first introducing PIP-compatible amplifiers and PIP modules, Crown has...
document What does ODEP stand for?
ODEP stands for Output Device Emulator Protection. ODEP is an analog computer simulation of the output device thermal impedance. In layman's terms...
document What is TLC?
TLC, Thermal Limit Control, is used in some Crown amplifiers to provide the amp thermal protection, when a predetermined temperature threshold is...
document What is IOC?
IOC stands for Input Output Comparator. This circuit compares the output signal of the amplifier with the input signal. If there is any difference...
document What is the CLIP Indicator on my amp telling me?
Crown CE Series, Contractor Series (CH/CL Series) and K Series amplifiers feature a Clip Indicator for each channel. These amplifiers also have...
document Why the 20A and 30A AC connectors, and can I get an adapter to connect to a standard 15A outlet?
North American MA-3600VZ and MA-5002VZ amplifiers have 30 amp molded AC plugs, and North American MA-2402 and MT-2400 amplifiers have 20 amp molded...
document What is the output power rating of my Crown amplifier?
Output power specifications are provided in the specifications area for each Crown amplifier model. If you can't find your model of Crown amplifier...
document Can I run one channel of my Crown amplifier at a different impedance than the other channel?
Yes. All dual channel Crown amplifiers can be treated as if they are two separate "mono" amplifiers (One channel completely independent of...
document Should I have the level controls on my amplifier turned all the way up?
It depends on the system and how much gain you have prior to the amplifier. The level control can be thought of as an input attenuator. It does...
document How do I determine the best input sensitivity setting?
The input sensitivity setting is a function of amplifier gain. You will want to match it with the output level of whatever is before the amp in the...
document How can I parallel the inputs of my Crown amplifier with the same signal?
The input impedance of Crown amplifiers is high enough that paralleling multiple inputs together is not a problem. Using a standard Y-adapter...
document How much "inrush current" will my amp draw during turn on?
Design features of the amplifier, including power supply design and transformer size, partially determine maximum peak inrush current for a given...
document How can I get rid of the noise in my system?
First let us lay some groundwork: audio systems can exhibit "hum" and they can exhibit "buzz," which are two separate...
document What is Damping Factor?
Though technically more complex than this, Damping factor is usually thought of as an indicator of how tight an amplifier will sound when powering...
document What gauge speaker wire should I use in my system?
For the best speaker damping and least amount of power loss you will want to use the heaviest gauge that is practical. The length of the speaker wire...
document Should I use vented spaces between my amplifiers?
With the exception of the K Series and Commercial Audio Series amplifiers, the answer is no*. The airflow technology that we use in our amplifiers is...
