Crest Audio debuts the E-Lite Series power amplifiers with the E-Lite 1800 & 3000 and E-Lite 1800 DSP & 3000 DSP.

According to the manufacturer, the E-Lite series features “lightweight, efficient design with high power and stable performance down to 2-ohm loads.”

Crest Audio E-Lite Series amps are built on a class D design with a switch-mode power supply designed to reduce weight while increasing reliability, thermal efficiency and output power. The E-Lite 1800 and E-Lite 1800 DSP has 900 watts per channel, and the E-Lite 3000 and E-Lite 3000 DSP boast 1500 watts per channel and both versions weigh less than 10 lbs.

The Crest Audio E-Lite DSP version features an onboard digital signal processor that hosts a suite of delays (0–120ms per channel), adjustable crossover, adjustable limiter, parametric EQ, HF driver EQ, 4 user preset storage locations, and stereo/mono/bridge operation with lockable security settings. The front-panel LCD screen allows users to quickly identify and assign presets, while the USB port allows users to load presets and enables external setup and adjustment.

The E-Lite DSP section also integrates Waves MaxxBass Bass Extension technology, which uses psycho-acoustics to create precise harmonic overtones that give the perceived effect of adding low frequencies to the mix. The level of MaxxBass can be adjusted from 0% to 100%.

Crest Audio E-Lite Series amplifiers feature two channels with channel-independent, fourth order 100 Hz crossovers housed in a steel chassis. The ACL Automatic Clip Limiting circuitry prevents the amplifier from sending potentially damaging clipped signals to the loudspeakers. Additional onboard protection circuitry includes DC, Temp, Signal and Active safeguards, all referenced on the front panel with LED indicators.

The Crest Audio is taking orders for the E-Lite series, which will be available in Q3, 2010 from authorized Crest Audio retailers.
