I've been tinkering with electronics ever since I was a kid - starting with taking apart and putting back together televisions and radios. I always got them back together again and working. I took courses in radio and electronics as a teenager, and became a ham radio operator.

I worked in my high school's stage crew, running sound, lights, and a movie projector. After college, I joined a rock 'n roll band as the soundman and learned how to lug around and operate the gear that helps make music sound good and loud. Working in a music store in Austin, Texas, I spent a few years manufacturing, installing, repairing, and operating sound systems. Our customers were recording studios, nightclubs, and touring bands. Eventually I moved back to Charlottesville, Virginia and opened a small demo recording studio.

In , I finally came to my senses and got this job at Crutchfield. They actually pay me to ramble on, rant, and explain the things I love about music, electronics, and getting good sound.

Given my background, they put me to work writing about some of the most complex electronic products Crutchfield sells: car amplifiers, digital signal processors, wiring, professional sound mixers, and PA systems. Crown's XLS 2-channel power amplifier can put out watts per channel at 8 ohms, watts at 4 ohms, at 2 ohms, and up to watts when bridged — enough to cleanly power a wide variety of loudspeakers. This highly efficient Class D amp employs internal heat sinks with forced-air cooling to keep the internal temperature under control, and an automated rear fan that kicks in when you're pushing the amp hard.

The LCD screen lets you configure the amp mode, set the limiter, and adjust the crossover configuration with the push of a few buttons.

Crown's patented DriveCore technology allows their XLS amps to maintain high efficiency even when they're being powered by untrustworthy AC current. Unstable electrical loads typically introduce heavy noise into most Class D amps, but the DriveCore circuit keeps the distortion to practically zero.

So even if you've got to plug in near a lighting rig or other backline gear, XLS amps wipe away interference so your signal always remains clean. Are you working with subwoofers, multiple speakers, or floor monitors?

You can maximize the XLS 's energy by employing its integrated PureBand Crossover System to tailor the sound to fit each of your speakers.

Your choice of three different crossover modes, high-pass, low-pass, and bandpass, let you configure your system to nearly any situation or speaker setup, whether you need big-time bass or just need to hear the vocals clearly above the thrash and thunder.

And the settings can all be adjusted right from the amp's front panel. Crown's Peakx Limiters give you the confidence to push your system hard without shutting down the entire production. You'll be able to push the volume up safely without fear of sonic distortion littering the audience's ears or wrecking your speakers.
