  • Crown X1000 amp

    Junk?  Worth $199?


    If not, why not?


    Also, anyone have a suggestion for a rack mount stereo amp that puts out 100w / channel and is LIGHT?  Would be used in a guitar amp rack, isn't going to have to reproduce any deep low end.

    You can get either the Crown XLS1000 or Peavey IPR1600 for about $250 new - I've used them both. The X1000 isn't listed on Crown's website - it seems to be only sold by GC/MF and their various AKA's - seems fishy to me? I couldn't find a weight for it either.

      I bought one for $199 on MF's Stupid Deal of the Day.  I couldn't find much info on it but figured I can return it pretty easily.


      It's not  my intention to put this amp in my guitar rig, this is for monitors.  I'm ALSO looking for a lightweight (maybe digital) amp for my guitar rig.

    For a nice lightweight amp for your guitar rig check out Matrix amps. They're nice but kind of expensive. I just bought a Rocktron Velocity 300 for my rig and love it. Its 1ru but its also 15lbs. But its still lighter than the old 2ru velocity 300 it replaced.

      The mosvalve is a low feedback MOSFET linesr amp. This in not a pro audio product. It is more for giving for guitar

        I know.


        I have tone covered with my floor unit VG-88.  Just looking for a lightweight rack mount amp that'll do 100w / channel or so.
