Crest Audio has announced it is now shipping the new Pro-LITE 2.0 power amplifier, which offers a high-speed class D design with a switch-mode power supply that reduces weight while increasing reliability, thermal efficiency and output power in parallel, stereo and bridged modes.
The Pro-LITE 2.0 has two channels with independent, fourth-order 100 Hz crossovers and power ratings of 540 watts per channel at 4 ohms stereo (up to 2,000 watts bridged @ 4 ohms) at just 11.6 pounds. A robust power supply allows these amplifiers to deliver consistent, stable performance with low frequencies.
Circuit boards are heavy-duty, with added emphasis on mission-critical components like extra-large capacitors and inductors that optimize 2-ohm operation.
The onboard protection suite includes proprietary ACL Automatic Clip Limiting circuitry, which prevents the amplifier from sending potentially damaging clipped signals to the loudspeakers, as well as DC, Temp, Signal and Active safeguards, all referenced on the front panel with LED indicators.
The Pro-LITE Series is backed by a free five-year extended warranty.
