Crest Audio Pro-LITE 2.0

Lightweight power amp

What is it?A high powered amplifier capable of almost 1kW output per channel in an ultra-efficient lightweight package for all professional audio applications.DetailsThe Pro-LITE 2.0 amplifier is described as an advanced, high-speed class-D design incorporating a switch-mode power supply to reduce weight while increasing reliability, thermal efficiency and output power in switchable parallel, stereo and bridged modes. The Pro-LITE 2.0 is two-channel design with independent, fourth-order 100Hz crossovers, power output of 980W per channel into 2 ohms, 540W per channel into 4 ohms (up to 2kW bridged into 4 ohms) and weighing 11.6 lbs. Distortion is quoted as 1% into 2 ohm loads (and for bridged operation) and at 0.1% for 4 ohm and 8 ohm loads (both channels driven, continuous sine wave).
The Pro-LITE 2.0 uses heavy-duty circuit board designs with added emphasis on critical components such as extra-large capacitors and inductors to optimise loading down to 2 ohms. ACL (Automatic Clip Limiting) prevents potentially damaging clipped signals reaching the speakers while additional onboard protection circuitry – including DC, temperature, signal and active safeguards – are all referenced through front panel LED indicators. Inputs are via combi Neutrik XLR/¼” connectors and centre-detented level controls with Speakon connectors provided for the outputs. An XLR through connector is also included.And another thing…Crest produce an alternative Pro LITE 2.0 DSP model which, as its name suggests incorporates onboard digital signal processing facilities.
