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.
