Crest Audio announces the latest introduction to their "Crest Performance" products - the new CPX Series Power Amplifiers. Designed for mobile sound systems, fixed installations and a wide variety of Audio applications, the new CPX Series power amplifiers deliver superlative performance with Crest's legendary reliability and sound quality. The CPX Series includes three models - the CPX900, CPX1500 and CPX2600.

The CPX Series of amplifiers offer a comprehensive feature set that includes: built-in defeatable GCL™ clip limiting, low pass filters (18dB per octave @ 80 Hz), and electronic crossovers with direct outputs. In addition, all CPX Series Amplifiers feature extensive protection circuitry heretofore not found in amplifiers at this price point. These features include: GCL™ Gain comparator (monitors input/output gain), Thermal Protection, DC Triac Crowbar (prevents DC in/out), and Turn On/Off Muting. In addition, all CPX Series Amplifiers utilize a unique (patent applied for) heat sink configuration which creates a "venturi effect" that greatly enhances the cooling capabilities of these amplifiers.

The CPX900 produces 450 watts per channel (20Hz to 20kHz) at 2 Ohms (900 watts at 4 Ohms, bridged mono). The CPX1500 produces 750 watts per channel (20Hz to 20kHz) at 2 Ohms (1500 watts at 4 Ohms, bridged mono). The CPX2600 produces 1300 watts per channel (20Hz to 20kHz) at 2 Ohms (2600 watts at 4 Ohms, bridged mono). THD is less than 0.1% at rated power for all models.

The CPX Series amplifiers feature a built-in crossover (150 Hz, 24dB per octave tuned for subwoofers), with individual in/out switches for Channels A & B. Barrier strip and Female XLR 1/4-inch TRS input connectors are provided with Speakon™ output connectors for channel A & B, and Bridged mono Binding posts for Bridged mode. All CPX Series amplifiers are 2U tall, have a mode selector switch for stereo and bridged-mono operation, and come complete with a two-speed DC cooling fan.

Like all Crest Performance Series Audio products, the new CPX power amplifiers are backed by Crest's exclusive three-year warranty.
