Crown DCi8 600 Power Amplifier Details

Crown DCi8 600 Power Amplifier is a Crown exclusive that combines hundreds of parts into one chip the size of a your fingertip, resulting in more efficiencies and unsurpassed reliability. DriveCoreâ"¢ Technology seamlessly integrates the Crown DCi8 600 Power Amplifier drive stage into the power output stage fusing everything into a chip the size of a dime. The foundational DriveCoreâ"¢ circuitry is based on breakthroughs by Crown's own Gerald Stanley with five patents applying to the advanced feedback, modulation and output stage technologies. DriveCore's front-end drive circuits leverage the inherent efficiency of Class D output stages while also maintaining superb sonic characteristics. The end result is an ultra-efficient one-piece audio amplifier circuit that exhibits the exemplary audio quality of a highly evolved Class AB design.

Crown DCi8 600 Power Amplifier Features

  • True Rack Density "" power points of 300W or 600W in 2/4/8 channel configurations and 1250W in 2/4 channel configurations. Includes bridgable outputs of 300-2500W, all in a 2U form factor, providing flexibility in designs
  • Save money by using smaller gauge wiring to drive the speakers using either 70Vrms or 100Vrms
  • With no need for a step-up transformer at the output, Crown DCi8 600 Power Amplifier produces higher audio quality much more efficiently
  • Drive either one or two speakers in low-Z mode, or literally hundreds of speakers in high-Z mode (70Vrms or100Vrms), means better design flexibility since Crown DCi8 600 Power Amplifier powers all loads on a channel-by-channel basis
  • The DCi Series channels are bridgeable "" even in 100Vrms mode "" which means even more adaptability for higher power applications such as subwoofers
  • Save power by integrating the amplifier into a control system so you can easily turn it on and off
  • Highly efficient internal cooling fans provide airflow to the most heat-generating parts. Incorporating the fans into the amplifier brick design maximizes cooling while minimizing wasted energy and noise
  • The most advanced power supply in an installation amplifier delivers power more efficiently in almost any condition than anyone else, resulting in less power dissipated and less heat in your racks
