Crown XS500 400 watts x 2 amp only 6 months old (1 Viewer)


Second Unit
Jan 21, 2003
I bought this 2 channel 400 watt amp brand new 6 months ago from an authorized dealer ( retail is 949.00 ), its in mint condition with box and manual. It has a 3 year no fault fully transferable warranty. This amp will drive ANYTHING with total ease. It is a step up on the crown food chain from the CE series.

I will take 400.00 for it and that includes PAYPAL fees. I will set shipping at 25.00 in the Cont. US only. I have 97 positives and no negatives on ebay under psujohny.

• Housed in a rugged, all-steel 2U chassis.
• Efficient forced-air fan prevents excessive thermal buildup.
• 2-channel models have XLR-1/4" combo inputs, 3-pin Phoenix-style inputs, daisy-chain XLR outputs, touch-proof binding post outputs and Speakon® outputs. Xs4300 has XLR-1/4" combo inputs and touch-proof binding post outputs.
• Precision detented level controls, power switch, and five LEDs which indicate clip for each channel, power, AC mains, temperature and fault conditions.
• Microprocessor-controlled protection system.
• Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty completely protects your investment and guarantees its specification.

The following applies to units in Stereo mode with 8-ohm loads and rated input sensitivity unless otherwise specified.
400 watts x 2 @ 8 ohms, 500 watts @ 4 ohms, 750 watts @ 2 ohms.
Power Output: See power charts above.
Sensitivity (volts RMS) for full rated power at 4 ohms: 1.4V
Frequency Response (at 1 watt): 22 Hz to 22 kHz: ±1 dB.
Phase Response (degrees at 1 watt, 20 Hz to 20 kHz): +5°, –18°
Signal-to-Noise Ratio:
A-weighted, below rated power: > 102 dB.
22Hz to 22kHz, below rated power: > 97 dB.
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) at full bandwidth power, from 20 Hz to 20 kHz: 0.5%.
Intermodulation Distortion (IMD):
(60 Hz and 7 kHz at 4:1) from full rated output to –40 dB: < 1%.
Damping Factor (8 ohm) 10 Hz to 400 Hz:
> 200.
Crosstalk (below rated power):
Xs500 (1 kHz, 20 kHz): > 55 dB, > 55 dB
Load Impedance: Safe with all types of loads.
2 to 8 ohms in Stereo, 4 to 8 ohms in Bridge Mono.
Level: Two front-panel, gray rotary level controls, one for each channel.
Power: Front-panel switch; on when in the right-hand position.
Signal: green LEDs, one for each channel, illuminates when the channel’s input signal level is above –40 dBu.
Clip: Two front-panel red LEDs, one for each channel, illuminates when the channel’s output signal is being overdriven.
Power: Yellow front-panel LED indicates amplifier has been turned on and AC power is available.
AC Mains: Red front-panel LED indicates the presence of AC power at the power cord, even if the amplifier is not turned on.
Fault: Red front-panel LED illuminates when amplifier is in protect mode. Also illuminates briefly during normal power-up when amplifier is first switched on.
Bridge: Yellow LED indicates that amplifier is in bridge mode Channels 1 and 2.
Temp: Red LED indicates that channel(s) are in thermal protect mode.

Input Connectors:
XLR-1/4" combo connectors: One per channel, 3-pin female XLR connector and TRS 1/4" phone jack accept balanced or unbalanced signals.
3-pin Phoenix-style connectors (2-channel models only): One per channel, accepts balanced or unbalanced signals.
Input Impedance (nominal) balanced, unbalanced: 20 k ohms, 10 k ohms.
Output Connectors:
Balanced XLR connectors (2-channel models only): One per channel, 3-pin male XLR connector in parallel with XLR-1/4" combo and Phoenix-style input connectors for daisy-chain operation.
5-Way binding post output connectors: One pair per channel; accept banana plugs, spade lugs or bare wire. Note: Binding post outputs on European models come with safety plugs installed to prevent European power-cord plugs from being inserted. The top & bottom entry positions for these connectors should therefore be used with European models.
4-Pole Speakon® output connector (2-channel models only): One connector per channel. Accepts a 4-pole Speakon connector.
DC Output Offset (shorted input): ±75 millivolts.
Output Signal: Stereo, unbalanced, two-channel
Xs Series amplifiers provide extensive protection and diagnostic capabilities, including output current limiting, microprocessor-controlled DC protection, circuit breaker, and special thermal protection for the unit’s transformers.

Ventilation: Flow-through ventilation from front to back.
Cooling: Internal heat sinks with forced-air cooling for rapid, uniform heat dissipation.
Air Volume Requirements (per minute per unit): 80.15 ft³ (2.27 m³).
Dimensions: EIA Standard 19-inch (48.3-cm) rack mount width (EIA RS-310-B), 3.5-inch (8.9-cm) height and 15.5-inch (39.4-cm) depth behind the mounting surface.
Net Weight: 28 lb (12.7 kg)
Shipping Weight: 34 lb (15.4 kg)
