New Crest Audio CLh Series power amplifiers for fixed installation applications are now shipping.
Led by the CLh 5000 and CLh 2500 models, CLh amplifiers are outfitted with an efficiency amplifier output circuit that reduces weight while increasing output power, reliability and thermal efficiency. As servo-controlled, highly efficient, class-D power amplifiers, the CLh 5000 and CLh 2500 deliver power through two channels to balanced outputs for high common-mode noise cancellation.
The CLh 5000 produces 2,500 watts per channel continuous at 70.7 volts, while the CLh 2500 provides 1,250 watts per channel continuous at 70.7 volts (100-volt export models featuring power factor correction will also be available). The CLh series amplifiers deliver this power from a 13-pound package.
The CLh Series includes Crest Audio’s proprietary ACL (Active Clip Limiting), which automatically reduces gain at the onset of clipping to prevent amplifier and load damage; over-current protection; DC voltage; channel active and temperature warning. Additional features include a light-weight switch-mode power supply, remote turn-on, sequential turn-on and a switchable, built-in low-cut filter.
CLh Series amplifiers are backed by Crest Audio’s 5-year warranty and are now available for shipping.
