[NAMM] Crown XTi 2 Series Amplifiers
Crown Audio introduces the XTi 2 Series of amplifiers.
The XTi 2 Series are said to providing a suite of integrated speaker processing, eliminating the need for external crossovers, limiters, and EQs, saving rack space and money.
The XTi 2 features Crown's PeakX Plus limiters, derived from the same framework as those found in I-Tech HD and the new XLS DriveCore Series amplifiers allowing users to manipulate threshold, attack and release times.
A new subharmonic synthesiser is designed to offer more accurate control over which frequencies are targeted and can be tailored for a specific system or room setup.
Users now have Advanced Thermal Control giving them the ability to tailor the fan performance to their specific application. XTi 2 also increases the amount of presets a user can save and recall from 20 to 30. A new status section on the amplifier allows for the monitoring of power supply temperature and AC line voltage making troubleshooting easier.
XTi 2 amplifiers are also compatible with HiQnet Band Manager software. The free-of-charge application provides an interface, which has been re-skinned to simplify system setup and management while enabling audio professionals, musicians and engineers to configure and control a rack of Crown XTi and now XTi 2 series amplifiers.
The amplifiers now feature integrated rack handles and a new cast front panel. The XTi 2 1002, 2002, and 4002 weigh 18.5lbs and the XTi6002 weighs in at 24lbs.
Pricing is to be confirmed.
