Crown International announced the addition of the Xs 1200 ($1,789) to the Xs Series of power amplifiers. The Xs 1200 is the highest-powered model in the series, providing 1,100 watts per channel into 4 ohms.

The amplifier is housed in a rugged, all-steel 2RU chassis and employs efficient forced-air cooling. The front panel features dual-precision detented level controls, power switch, bridge, power, AC mains present, temp and fault LEDs, and signal and clip LEDs for each channel. Rear panel connections include Neutrik Combo inputs, allowing balanced XLR or 1/4-inch connections, barrier strip inputs, XLR male outputs for daisy-chaining, and touch-proof binding post, Speakon and Phoenix outputs. The Xs 1200 also employs extensive protection and diagnostics capabilities, including output current limiting, DC protection, circuit breaker and special thermal protection.

Power ratings per channel on the Xs 1200 include 1,600W @ 2 ohms, 1,100W @ 4 ohms, and 650W @ 8 ohms.

“The new Xs 1200 really rounds out the Xs Series, offering a high-power option for driving subs and high-output loudspeaker systems,” noted Larry Baker, market director for portable PA, recording and broadcast at Crown. “This new amplifier offers a whole lot of Crown power for the money, and makes the Xs Series complete, with models to power the whole system, from monitors, to mid-high cabinets to subwoofers.”
