Las Vegas, NV (June 26, 2018)—Crown has expanded its DriveCore Install DA Series amplifiers with the introduction of the Crown DCi 8|300DA, Crown DCi 4|300DA and Crown DCi 4|600DA.


Part of Crown’s flagship line of networked install amplifiers, the new amps support Dante and AES67 networked audio at lower wattage than existing DA Series amplifiers, and aim to provide output power, channel count and speaker load flexibility and proprietary DriveCore technology in one package.

The DCi DA Series includes a high-powered DSP with JBL speaker tunings, network control/monitoring and the ability to drive 2/4/8/16 ohm, 70 V and 100 V speaker loads out of each channel without the need for an external transformer.

The new models’ names spell out their capabilities—the DCi 8|300DA is an 8-channel power amplifier with 300 W per channel, while the DCi 4|300DA is a 4-channel power amplifier with 300 W per channel and the DCi 4|600DA is a 4-channel power amplifier with 600 W per channel.

“These new, lower wattage members of the Crown DCi DA Series demonstrate our commitment to providing robust and capable amplifier solutions for any application,” said Iain Gregory, director, Large Venue Solutions and Marketing at HARMAN Professional Solutions.

“With support for Dante and AES67 combined with the advanced capabilities of the Crown DriveCore Install Series, these new amplifiers bring the ability to distribute amplifiers throughout a facility without complex cabling or additional devices.”
