Crown's XLS 1002 2-channel power amplifier can put out 215 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 350 watts at 4 ohms, 550 at 2 ohms, and up to 1100 watts when bridged — enough to cleanly power a wide variety of loudspeakers. This highly efficient Class D amp employs internal heat sinks with forced-air cooling to keep the internal temperature under control, and an automated rear fan that kicks in when you're pushing the amp hard.

Give your speakers the power they deserve

Crown's XLS 1002 2-channel power amplifier can put out 215 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 350 watts at 4 ohms, 550 at 2 ohms, and up to 1100 watts when bridged — enough to cleanly power a wide variety of loudspeakers. This highly efficient Class D amp employs internal heat sinks with forced-air cooling to keep the internal temperature under control, and an automated rear fan that kicks in when you're pushing the amp hard.

Controls you'll use

The amp's front panel offers independent gain control knobs, LED level/clip indicators, an on/off switch, LCD screen, and three menu control buttons. The LCD screen lets you configure the amp mode, set the limiter, and adjust the crossover configuration with the push of a few buttons. The rear of the XLS 1002 is a veritable treasure trove of connections — balanced XLR, 1/4", and RCA inputs, so you can get creative with your audio sources. The 1/4" line-level outputs let you add more amps to the mix. You'll find binding posts and Neutrik Speakon® outputs for the speakers, plus a built-in circuit breaker to protect against overload.

Technology under the hood

Crown's patented DriveCore technology allows their XLS amps to maintain high efficiency even when they're being powered by untrustworthy AC current. Unstable electrical loads typically introduce heavy noise into most Class D amps, but the DriveCore circuit keeps the distortion to practically zero. So even if you've got to plug in near a lighting rig or other backline gear, XLS amps wipe away interference so your signal always remains clean.

Built-in PureBand™ Crossover System

Are you working with subwoofers, multiple speakers, or floor monitors? You can maximize the XLS 1002's energy by employing its integrated PureBand Crossover System to tailor the sound to fit each of your speakers. It lets you choose the crossover point just about anywhere between 50 and 3000 Hz, and gives you steep 24 dB/octave slopes for seamless transitions between different drivers. Your choice of three different crossover modes, high-pass, low-pass, and bandpass, let you configure your system to nearly any situation or speaker setup, whether you need big-time bass or just need to hear the vocals clearly above the thrash and thunder. And the settings can all be adjusted right from the amp's front panel.

Peakx Limiters keep you out of trouble

Crown's Peakx Limiters give you the confidence to push your system hard without shutting down the entire production. You'll be able to push the volume up safely without fear of sonic distortion littering the audience's ears or wrecking your speakers. Crown put independent Peakx Limiters on every channel, and they're defeatable right from the front panel.

    Product Research


    Overview: Crown's new XLS DriveCore 2 series of power amplifiers feature an upgraded look with a larger display. Like their predecessors, the new XLS amps are equipped with Crown's patented DriveCore technology. The XLS 1002 can drive your speakers with 1100 watts (at 4Ω bridged) of clean power with very low distortion.

    DriveCore: DriveCore Technology seamlessly integrates the amplifier drive stage into the power output stage fusing everything into a chip the size of a dime. The foundational DriveCore 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.

    Power Rating: The Crown XLS 1002 can power 8Ω, 4Ω, or 2Ω loads, and can be bridged for 8Ω or 4Ω mono operation. The maximum average power in watts at 0.5% THD, 1 kHz is as follows:

    Impedance Load Dual Mode (stereo) Bridged Mode (mono)
    2 ohm 550 watts N/A
    4 ohm 350 watts 1,100 watts
    8 ohm 215 watts 700 watts

    PureBand Crossover System: The PureBand Crossover System in the XLS DriveCore 2 Series adds an enormous amount of flexibility and performance to any system. With this system, the crossover frequency is completely variable allowing the choice of any crossover point between 30Hz and 3kHz on 1/12th octave centers. The use of 24dB/octave Linkwitz-Riley filters provides steep slopes for a seamless transition between high and low drivers. You can choose from three filter types: Low Pass, High Pass, and Band Pass.

    Peakx Limiters: Peakx Limiters provide the ultimate in performance and protection for your entire system. This advanced algorithm was specifically developed and tuned to work with this amplifier and power-supply to achieve higher SPL with less audible artifacts. This means less distortion, less shutdowns, and maximum safe power delivered to your speakers. The Peakx Limiters can be easily turned on or off by channel right from the front panel eliminating the need to be digging around in the back of the dark rack.

    Inputs: The XLS DriveCore 2 Series amplifiers provide one balanced XLR, one 1/4", and one RCA connector per channel for flexible connectivity. The 1/4" inputs can be used as a loop-thru to distribute signal to additional amplifiers.

    Outputs: The XLS DriveCore 2 Series amps feature two 4-Pole Speakon output connectors that will accept 2-pole or 4-pole Speakon connectors. The Channel 1 Speakon connector is wired for both channels so it can be used for bridged-mono wiring or for stereo wiring of two speakers to a single Speakon connector. There is also one pair of back-panel binding posts per channel that will accept banana plugs or bare wire.

    Level Controls: The amplifier's two channel outputs are equipped with independent Gain (Level) control. These front panel rotary controls let you raise or lower the gain as you view the LED indicators to provide an optimal signal to the amp.

    LED Indicators: The power amplifier features ten LEDs (five for each output channel) to indicate status of amplifier:

    • Single Presence: Two green LED's, one for each channel, illuminate when the channel input signal exceeds -40dBu.
    • -10: Green LED flashes when output signal level exceeds -10dB below clip.
    • -20: Green LED flashes when output signal level exceeds -20dB below clip.
    • Clip: Two red LED's, one for each channel, illuminate when the channel's output is being overdriven.
    • Thermal: Two red LED's, one for each channel, illuminate when thermal compression begins.

    Main Menu: The amplifier's back-lit LCD screen allow you to navigate through the main menu and make adjustments to the amplifier right from the front panel:

    • Amp Mode: Allows you to select one of three amplifier modes:
      • Stereo: Channels 1 and 2 function as independent amplifiers
      • Bridge: The output is set into a bridge configuration
      • Input-Y: Drives the two channels with the same input signal
    • Crossover: Lets you select the filter type and frequency for each amplifier output channel. In Stereo or Input-Y mode, you will first be prompted to select which amp channel to set up. Once the channel has been selected, or if you are in Bridge Mode, you can choose from the following: Low Pass, Band Pass, or High Pass
    • Input Sensitivity: Input Sensitivity enables you to set the input sensitivity for the optimal system performance. You can choose from:
      • .775V - High: For sources with inherently low output levels, select this mode to drive the amplifier to full power. Typically, sources that use the RCA connections require the High setting.
      • 1.4V - Normal: For all other audio sources, the input sensitivity should be set to normal
    • System Menu: The System Menu lets you select the following:
      • Display Sleep: Sets the display to go into sleep mode after a predetermined idle time: 30 sec, 1 min, 2 min, 5 min, or sleep mode off.
      • Lighting: Lets you toggle on or off the blue panel lights and the green signal level indicators. The thermal and clip indicators cannot be turned off.
      • Security: Allows you to lock the menu buttons so that the settings cannot be disturbed once they have been set up.
      • System Information: Lets you access additional information, such as the model number, internal temperatures and voltages, firmware version, etc.
      • Factory Reset: Lets you reset the amplifier to the factory default settings. This allows you to start your setup from the beginning, if you desire.

    Flow-Through & Forced-Air Cooling: The XLS DriveCore 2 Series amplifiers employ flow-through, front-to-back ventilation and internal heat sinks with forced-air cooling for rapid, uniform heat dissipation.

    Aux Connector: A 3-pin Aux connector on the rear panel lets you remotely trigger sleep mode through a contact closure on pins 1 and 2. An amp status signal is available on pin 3.

    Specifications: The Crown XLS 1002 DriveCore 2 series amplifier has the following specifications:

    • Sensitivity: 0.775Vrms or 1.4Vrms (selectable)
    • Frequency Response: +0dB, -1dB (at 1W, 20Hz to 20kHz)
    • Signal-to-Noise Ratio: >97dB
    • Total Harmonic Distortion (THD): <0.5%
    • Intermodulation Distortion: <0.3% (60Hz and 7kHz at 4:1, full rated output to -30dB)

    21 questions already asked

    Can I run 4 JBL AWC62's with this amp even though it's only a 2-channel amp?
    [ Greg  Jan 24, 2022 ]
    1 answer
    Hey Greg yes u can easily run 4 JBL AWC62's with this amp - all u need to do is use the speakons to connect one pair and the binding posts to connect the second pair just purchase a speakon to bare wire connector and/or connect the second pair with the the thru connection. As the AWC62's are 8 ohms the total impedance with 2 pairs in parallel is 4 ohms well within the specs of the XLS1002. That would be 350 watts per side at the 4 ohms i.e. 175 per each speaker so right at the power handling of the JBL's. The XLS 1002 is a pretty strong amp for its size and class d and the fan rarely runs. That setup should work well hope this helps.
    [ MICHAEL  Jan 25, 2022 ]
    I'm interested in this amp. But my speakers are Bowers & Wilkins - 600 Series Anniversary Edition 2-way Bookshelf Speaker w/6.5" midbass. Any concern?

    [ JUAN  May 29, 2021 ]
    The Crown series of amps offer a lot of power for the money and are intended for PA applications, but I would not recommend them for bookshelf HiFi speakers. There are many better sounding affordable amps for HiFi speakers.
    [ TOM  May 29, 2021 ]
    Hi there, the XLS 1002 would work well with the B&W 600 series. The 215 watts/channel at 8 ohms would provide enough appropriate headroom over what appears to be the 100 or 120 continuous watts that the B&Ws (depending on model - I looked at two similar 600 series) are rated to handle. Don't be concerned about overpowering - it is better to err on the side of more power than less. The XLS 1002 is a good flexible amp that can be used in home theater because of rca inputs and also the fan almost never runs. I use mine with JBL Northridge 26 bookshelf speakers (similar size and power handling to your B&Ws) and it provides enough output to hear in the whole house without a subwoofer. I also tested it in my PA system and it has enough power without straining to output good levels from 2X 15 cabinets although they could use more power for maximum effect. Overall the XLS 1002 is a great solid light weight flexible amp at a great price, hope this helps, have a great day.
    [ MICHAEL  May 29, 2021 ]
    I'm looking to buy crown 1002 or Yamaha PX3 My questions are which will be the better Choice of the two ? Also I'm looking to connect Klipsch rp8000f plus a Klipsch powered sub Is it possible to do it on either of them as I can't see a sub out port? Thanks in advance !
    [ Emil  May 27, 2021 ]
    6 answers
    I am not familiar with the Yamaha PX3 so I have no way of comparing the two. The XLS 1002 does not have a sub out, so I use a splitter on my pre amp output to connect the input of the powered sub and the power amp. This seems to work fine for me.
    [ LARRY J  May 30, 2021 ]
    ok you can set one channel for hi and the other for subwoofer. You can determine this in the crow menu.
    [ VIP SECURITY  May 29, 2021 ]
    I'll answer this in part with a question. First do you have a receiver or what would be supplying the signal to your amp. This amp does not have a sub out. Your receiver or what ever supplies the signal to an amp should have a sub out. That is a good amp.
    [ Charles  May 28, 2021 ]
    Hello Emil. I do not have any response regarding the sub-woofer. I do not use one because my main speakers have great bass. The Crown amps I have used to replace my old Sony ES amps have been excellent and the sound quality of the Crown is easily equal to or better than the Sony ES. I listen loud, and the Crown handles the high volume quite nicely.
    [ RUSSELL  May 28, 2021 ]
    I have two Crown 1002 amps running a pair of Klipsch RF-7s. I have no complaints. I've never owned a Yamaha amp.
    [ JERRY  May 28, 2021 ]
    Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.
    [ Krissy  May 28, 2021 ]  Staff
    Will these work with a pair of Elac debut B5? The description only includes specs for 4 and 8ohms. Also I am not looking to bridge. The Elac Debuts are each rated at 120 watts at 6ohms.
    [ Brandon  Apr 29, 2021 ]
    5 answers
    Yes will work. 6 ohm per channel is compatible with this amp, your within ohm range of what the amp is capable of. . You shouldn't have any problems. No need to bridge and no need to worry about causing damage to your amp. Just be careful with volume because with your speakers are being over powered.
    [ David  May 01, 2021 ]
    I am assuming they will. I use this amp with my totem model 1 which is a 4 ohm speaker.
    [ ROGER  Apr 30, 2021 ]
    You will have no issues powering the speakers with this amp. Simply make sure your receiver has pre-amp outputs.
    [ Francisco  Apr 29, 2021 ]
    I don't see why not. If it can run a 4 ohm load, it can run a 6 ohm load. Be careful not to turn the gain up too much though or you risk blowing the speakers.
    [ A  Apr 29, 2021 ]
    No problem for those speakers. The XLS 1002 can run 2 ohm speakers in stereo. You run into problems when the ohms on the speakers are below the rating on the amp. So for XLS1002 any speaker 2ohm or higher is fine.
    [ Kyle  Apr 29, 2021 ]
    I want to use this amp for a sub. My receiver has sub out. do i run one rca to one input to this amp or do i use a y splitter for left and right. Will i have full power at the 4 ohm bridged?
    [ kevin  Feb 12, 2021 ]
    2 answers
    If I remember correctly the amp has within the settings an option to able to use just one input. And yes, if your sub's driver is 4ohms the amp will but out its bridged max power.
    [ Francisco  Feb 13, 2021 ]
    I used this amp to run a sub for a while. When I did this I used a y splitter. This should give you full power. This amp will most likely over power your home system, so keep in mind to make adjustments to match you home system.
    [ WYATT  Feb 13, 2021 ]
    How do I connect this amp to a SVS PC 12 plus ? I ask because the amp died and its an old subwoofer, but a great one and don't want it to go to waste.

    Not an expert in this type of DYI project, but would guess that bypassing the original amp entirely and rigging up a new direct input to the sub speaker would be necsassary

    5 answers
    I can't say if the amp is the right choice for you, but I do recommend this amp. Check out all the specs it has to offer for you. I suggest looking on YouTube to get a better idea what the amp is about. The xls 1002 will have more than plenty of power for your speakers. Having just over 200watts per channel for 8 ohm.
    [ David  Aug 31, 2020 ]
    You need to have a good preamplifier with this crown 1002
    [ Catalin  Aug 31, 2020 ]
    Based upon the manual, the output from this unit may overwhelm a 150W RMS speaker5 regardless of how configured. Providing the speaker model number would shed more light, as I'm not finding any Peavey Black Widow speaker rated at only 150 Watts.
    [ Vince  Aug 30, 2020 ]
    Should work fine, not sure that this amp puts out as much power as claimed?
    [ Russell  Aug 29, 2020 ]
    I don't know how you will be using your system whether at home or DJ but at 215 watts per channel at 8 ohms I don't think the XLS 1002 would have any problem driving your 150 watt speakers.

    You can not bridge the amp on a 2 ohm load. You can connect one channel to a 2 ohm load. You would be able to feed the sub 550 watts on a single channel.

    It is not recommended to use Pro amplifiers for Home audio applications. These amplifiers are designed for large output, with much less consideration to sound quality than that home amplifiers have. In other words, this will be loud, but will not sound nearly as good as an amplfiier designed for home audio applications. You should reach out to one of our advisors for more personalized help!

    [ mike  Apr 06, 2018 ]
    You can use basic RCA cables to go from the AV receiver signal out to the Crown signal in. You would then connect your speaker cables to the crown. The Crown also accepts XLR cables but your receiver probably doesn't have those. Should work great, lots of power with the Crown.

    This particular amp has both RCA and XLR inputs. Depending on your receivers output the 1002 could boost your output on those two channels by a significant amount. Basic RCA cables will work just fine and provide you with an unbalanced input. XLR inputs will provide you with a balanced input but should be matched to an appropriate receiver or processor .

    Yes but I wouldn't use basic RCA. I used Shielded twisted RCA cables. Sound great.

    How does this perform with a Dolby Atmos set-up?

    Been using this amp for the time being to run my side Surrounds in a theater system . Its a great amp and I Ultimately will be using this amp and one more to run My 2 pairs of Atmos speakers

    I have two JL Audio 12" subs in custom boxes that are hooked up to this amp and it sounds amazing on Atmos. The amp is turned about 3/4 of the up and it shakes the house. I have a Denon receiver, which provides enough power to the rest of my system.

    Step it up to the next size... yes it's more money but you need extra power to drive your Atmos speakers. I assume your hooking up your front speakers or a center speaker with the Crown XLS 1002.. I'm happy with the XLS 1002 but if I could do it over I would've went bigger Amp.

    Don't have a answer. I'm using it for mid s and tweeters. 6 250 watts x 2 Soundcraftsmen Amps. pushing 24 12" subs

    No idea on an atmos system. Installed it in a 30,000 sq ft brewery taproom, and with it powering 4 speakers and a subwoofer, the place ROCKS.

    Do this amp have a fixed gain input so both volumed on my AVR and the Amp would be synced?
    [ Mitchell  Nov 29, 2017 ]

    You can set the gain range for the amp for the left and right channel independently. Then your AVR will control the volume from there.

    Will this AMP (Crown XLS 1002) go to sleep or in by pass when its not sensing a signal in?? I know there is a contact closure to make this happen but some amps can sense the line in and bypass when no signal is detected for a period of time.

    I don't believe it does, but it stays quite cool to the touch; I keep mine on all the time; occasionally the fan comes on; it is really a good machine; you need not worry about it overheating; I have used it for about a year with no problems

    Its been awhile since I installed three of these units to power three zones, but as I recall they did have a sleep function
    [ RICHARD  Jul 17, 2017 ]
    No. Atl least the blue light stays on.
    [ DENNIS  Jul 17, 2017 ]
    The amp will NOT go to sleep or standby when no signal is passing. The fan might stop, but the amplifier will still be "on". Apparently there is a remote turn, something like a 12V-turn on, on the Phoenix connectors on the back, but from what I've heard, it needs an adapter made by Crown that senses power voltage and not signal voltage.
