Everyone I've talked to has pretty much said that the Crown XLS is the better amp over the Behringer EP's

i havent used any other xls but the amp does more than rated and the crossover section allows you to use car subwoofers. you just need to drop the lp all the way down and have it in crossover mode. i got a smokin deal on it dont hesitate!

crown is good stuff but ive been using behringer for my pro audio needs since i started playing instruments and its **** hard to beat behringer, older stuff even better but they havnt cheaped out yet. both are good but ive had better experience with behringer. the 4500h with the 4x10 cab was my favorite semi portable home/pro audio bass set up ever.

 

for me i prefer something that lets me pop my guitar/bass into it and gives me the same control set up as any guitar amp. thats just me though, totally different style than what youre looking at but musicians know what im talkong about, its so easy to hook up auxiliary to one and play it and tune it but its a pain in the *** to adjust a stereo for instruments

^^This^^!!

 

princ3cmo: No offense intended, but I doubt the preouts from that Denon would put out enough signal voltage. I tried going straight out of several Onkyo's, Pioneer's, Marantz receivers to drive my XLS2000, XTi1000, Samson S1000, Audio Centron RMA-800 amps and it never worked well. You'll probably have to pre-amp/line-drive the signal cuz you'll only be getting about half of the amp's output otherwise with no headroom at all.

 

A great, inexpensive option is to use a DJ type mixer with clean gains. This $250-ish Numark is $99 at GC and will be $79 Black Friday. iPod dock, lots of inputs, digital effects, cross-fade mixing, and yeah, tons of clean gain.

I've been using one as a hub for about 6 months to feed the Crowns and Samson. The XLS2000 is powering 3 JL 18W6's runnin IB and shaking the phuk out of the house...with NO BOX!!!

Because of Crown's excellent onboard programming options, you won't need an upstream crossover, time-alignment, etc.

Just hooked up my XLS1000. My actual speakers aren't here yet so I pulled out my dad's old Technics speakers. It's giving them a fit lol

Just saw this. I haven't bought the receiver yet. So I'm still open to options. I'd like something with a remote control though as I'll use it for TV too and I don't want to have to get out of bed all of the time to adjust the volume.

 

Right now its just coming out of the preouts of the TV, nothing special. Its enough volume for my room for sure. If the Denon outs are just a little stronger than the TV, I think I'll be satisfied. But, I'm still looking into preouts and EQs as well...

mine gets my jl w7 15 psi recone a fit too ahha deff bottomed it out a few times. i have a ****** signal going to the amp too so im excpecting it to be much much louder. im so content with my xls 2500 and 1000. of coarse theres better but these amps cant be beat with how much you pay. like price to quaility ratio.

how big of a difference between the mix and normal old ipod? like output wise

 

Between the two, it's an unfair fight. I forget the actual total amount of stacked gain that's possible on that particular unit, but probably in the 20dB+ range. You'll have a powerful, clean signal feeding that ****** amp you got with plenty of headroom to spare.

Check the specs on the Denon and see if the outs are constant voltage or variable (go up n down with the main volume). You'd be surprised how many are constant. And constantly low at that.

do you know the output voltage of the mixer you posted? couldnt find that spec. but really 20 + db?!?! i may pick one up black friday even tho i should really be saving for a car!. so question it goes ipod - mixer - amp correct? like standard rca to 3.5mm (ipod cord) rca to rca from mixer? you have the specific mixer you posted?

What are some cheap preamps to look at?

 

I was thinking about maybe an Audiosource EQ200....granted the preouts are pretty strong, it's a win win
