65 years after its founding, CROWN is the worldwide leader in professional amplifier technology. CROWN by HARMAN came from a analogue background and are now clearly a digital, networked, and implement switch mode amplifier technology. At avt we believe CROWN by HARMAN offer the best amplifiers on the market.

CDI Drivecore Amplifier Series

The CDi DriveCore Series is an evolution in amplification, providing an impressive mix of high-performance; rich feature set, and competitive cost. Using technology derived from our flagship Installed Sound amplifier (Crown DriveCore Install series), the CDi DriveCore 2|300 offers streamlined functionality to work in almost any small/medium sized installation such as restaurants, retail stores, and more.

Designed for ease-of-use in a variety of applications, with Analogue and/or BLU-Link input, the 2|300 is a 2-channel amp that includes network control/monitoring, high-level DSP, front-panel interface, and support for driving 4/8 Ohm or 70/100Vrms speaker loads without requiring a transformer. The entire CDi DriveCore line comes pre-loaded with JBL speaker tunings to help make installations quicker and easier.

DCI Drivecore

The DriveCore Install DA series is a line of premium installation amplifiers with Analogue, BSS BLU-Link, AVB or Dante™ / AES67 networked audio transport that are based upon proprietary DriveCore technology. These amplifiers feature an efficient design with network control/monitoring, high-level DSP with JBL tunings, and 2/4/8 Ohm or /70V/100V direct output compatibility.

Features:

  • INTEGRATED BSS BLU-Link, AVB and DANTE™ / AES67 NETWORKED AUDIO MODELS – Simplifies installation by enabling networked audio signals to be sent directly to the amplifier. Provides flexibility of installation options available with our expansive line-up of DriveCore Install amplifiers.
  • NETWORK CONFIGURATION, MONITORING & CONTROL – Better monitoring, control and audio manipulation with the HiQnet™ protocol over standard TCP/IP network. The HiQnet Audio Architect software allows for remote configuration, monitoring, and control of all aspects of the DCi-DA Series amplifiers.
  • PROGRAMMABLE GENERAL PURPOSE INPUT/OUTPUT PORT – GPIO ports can be configured in many different ways, such as volume controls, recall presets, or to report errors to third-party control system.
  • DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING – DSP capabilities include the following:
    • LevelMAX Limiters,
    • Input/Output EQ,
    • Crossover,
    • Delay,
    • Matrix Router,
    • Speaker Line Monitoring.

Mixer Amplifiers

The Crown commercial range of amplifiers delivers high value mixer-amplifiers for commercial audio. They provide 8-ohm and constant-voltage outputs (70V and 100V). Typical uses are paging, background music, and music-on-hold. The 135MA provides 3 inputs (each with a volume control) and a 35W amplifier output. The 160MA provides 4 inputs (each with a volume control) and a 60W amplifier output. Other features include priority muting, voice activated muting, phantom power, and bass and treble controls.

Features:

  • 3 inputs (each with a volume control), and one 35W amplifier output channel in 135MA
  • 4 inputs (each with a volume control), and one 60W amplifier output channel in 160MA
  • Ideal for paging, background music, and music-on-hold
  • Balanced Phoenix-type mic/line input, telephone output, dual RCA stereo music inputs, screw-terminal speaker outputs
  • Priority muting by VOX or external switch
  • Bass and Treble controls on master output
  • Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty completely protects your investment and guarantees its specifications.
