Anaheim, CA (June 21, 2007) — This year’s InfoComm exhibition finds Crown Audio shining the spotlight on its new CDi 4000, the latest and highest-powered addition to the CDi Series of professional power amplifiers for installed sound applications.
“With the launch of the CDi 4000, systems integrators now have an even broader range of available power, which extends to 1200 watts per channel into four ohms and 1000 watts per channel for 70-volt 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 features, including the ability to run both low-impedance two-, four- and eight-ohm loads as well as 70- and 140-volt outputs.
A 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 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 universal switch-mode power supply, each of the three CDi models weighs 19 pounds — despite being housed in a steel 2U chassis — and can be run off of a standard 15-amp outlet.
