Las Vegas, NV (June 9, 2016)—At InfoComm, Crown is introducing new Crown CDi DriveCore Series amplifiers, providing aspects of its DriveCore Install Series amplifiers with a streamlined set of options.
Like the flagship DCi Series amplifiers, the new CDi DriveCore amplifiers offer DriveCore technology for energy-efficient power handling. The amplifiers are available in two or four channel versions at 300W or 600W per channel. They provide the capability for low impedance (4/8 Ohms) amplification as well as constant voltage amplification with no transformers required, with both 70V and 100V options for installations worldwide.
Each model is also available in a version with BLU link, HARMAN’s proprietary high-bandwidth, low-latency and fault tolerant digital audio bus.
The CDi DriveCore Series includes Digital Signal Processing to achieve precise speaker tuning. Commercial integrators and technicians can configure amplifier inputs/outputs, modify DSP settings and recall created settings from the built-in front panel.
The option of using digital audio with BLU link simplifies pairing with other HARMAN products, such as a BSS Soundweb London BLU-50.
The Crown CDi DriveCore Series amplifiers are expected to ship in August 2016.
