Crown Tops Off CDi Range With CDi 4000
Feb 6, 2007 5:23 PM
Crown International announces that its CDi Series of professional power amplifiers for installed-sound applications has now been expanded with the addition of the highest-powered CDi 4000.
“With the launch of the CDi 4000, systems integrators now have an even broader range of available power, which extends to 1,200W per channel into 4Ω and 1,000W per channel for 70V distributed systems,” says Stephen Morris, Crown International director of marketing for installed sound, touring, and cinema. “With its advanced technologies and highly competitive price point, the CDi family truly represents an unmatched value in its class.”
Like its siblings, the CDi 1000 and CDi 2000, the high-performance CDi 4000 is equipped with a host of sophisticated features, not the least of which is its versatile ability to run both low-impedance 2Ω, 4Ω, and 8Ω loads, as well as 70V and 140V outputs.
An intuitive front panel LCD enables installers to quickly step through the process of tailoring system parameters for onboard loudspeaker processing (including crossovers, EQ, limiting, compression, and delay), while 20 user-defined DSP presets ensure that those settings can be easily recalled at the touch of a button. A rear-panel USB connector further permits the amplifier to be configured and controlled via a PC running Harman Pro’s HiQnet System Architect software.
Equipped with Crown’s extremely light and efficient universal switch-mode power supply, each of the three CDi models weighs only 19lbs.—despite being housed in a rugged steel 2U chassis—and can be conveniently and reliably run off of a standard 15-amp outlet.
Highly cost-effective when compared to competitive products, the CDi 4000 carries a suggested US list price of $1,800.
