features and performance of the original
Com-Techs while delivering upgraded features to help make your job easier.
In a profession where unplanned service
calls quickly wipe out profits, Com-Tech 10
Series is designed to be the most reliable
amplifier you can install.

The following applies to 120-VAC, 60-Hz units in Stereo
mode with 8-ohm loads and an input sensitivity of 26-dB
gain unless otherwise specified. Specifications for units
supplied outside the U.S.A. may vary slightly at different AC
voltages and frequencies.
• Unique power supply allows channels to be
independently operated in either 70-V or 8/4ohm mode.
• Remote feature allows amplifier to be turned
on and off from a remote location by adding
an optional R.S.V.P. accessory.
• Crown’s Grounded Bridge™ design delivers
large voltage swings without using easily
stressed output-transistor configurations like
conventional amplifiers. The results are
lower distortion and superior reliability.
• Patented ODEP® (Output Device Emulation
Protection) circuitry compensates for overheating and overload to keep the amplifier
working when others would fail.
• IOC® (Input/Output Comparator) circuitry immediately alerts of any distortion exceeding
0.05%, providing dynamic proof of distortionfree performance.
• Enhanced PIP2™ (Programmable Input Processor) connector accepts new accessory
modules that tailor the amplifier to suit specific applications.
• Full protection from shorted, open and mismatched loads; general overheating; DC;
high-frequency overloads, and full protection
from internal fault are provided by our latest
protection scheme: “Quad-Mute.”
• Three Year No-Fault Full Warranty completely

With 8/4-ohm output, all Com-Techs are rated
for 4 to 8 ohms in Dual mode, 8 to 16 ohms in
Bridge-Mono mode, and 2 to 4 ohms in
Parallel-Mono mode. With 70-volt output,
rated loads vary among the different models
for each dual/mono mode.

20:1 ±3% or 26 dB ±0.25 dB gain at the
maximum level setting.
Required AC Mains: 50/60-Hz; 100; 120; 220;
240 VAC (±10%) units are available. North
American units are 60 Hz, 120 VAC only.
AC Line Current,
Current, voltage and frequency requirements
are provided on the unit’s back panel.
At Idle: All units draw 35 watts or less when
idle (in energy-saving mode).
Level: A 21-position detented back-panel
rotary potentiometer for each channel used to
control the input level.
AC Line Connector: NEMA 5-15P plug is
provided on 120-VAC, 60-Hz North American
units. Plug illuminates when unit is powered.
Frequency Response: ±0.1 dB from 20 Hz to
20 kHz at 1 watt.
Phase Response: ±10 degrees from 10 Hz to
20 kHz at 1 watt.
Signal-to-Noise Ratio,A-weighted: Better than
105 dB below rated 1 kHz power.
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD): 1 kHz rated
power, 0.05% or less true THD.
Intermodulation Distortion (IMD): (60 Hz and
7 kHz at 4:1) Less than 0.05% from rated
power to 35 dB below rated power at 8 ohms.
Enable: A front-panel three-position switch
used to select local, off or remote.
Sensitivity: A three-position switch located
inside the PIP2 compartment used to select
input sensitivity: 0.775 volts in 8/4-ohm mode
or 0.775 volts in 70-volt mode for full rated
output, or a 26-dB voltage gain.

switch used to select Stereo, Bridge-Mono or
Parallel-Mono mode.

channel that flashes to show distortion if a
channel’s output waveform differs from its
input by 0.05% or more.
ODEP: A green front-panel LED for each
channel that shows thermal-dynamic energy
reserve. Normally, each ODEP indicator is lit to
show available reserve energy. In the rare
event that a channel has no reserve, its
indicator will dim in proportion to ODEP

amplifiers protect against RF burnouts. And
input overload protection is provided by
current-limiting resistance at the input.

prevents dangerous turn-on transients. “Soft

Com-Tech amplifiers are protected against
shorted, open or mismatched loads; overloaded power supplies; excessive temperature;
chain destruction phenomena; input overload
damage; and high-frequency blowups. They
also protect loudspeakers from input/output
DC and turn-on/turn-off transients.
If unreasonable operating conditions occur, the
patented ODEP circuitry will proportionally
limit the drive level to protect the output
transistor stages, particularly in the case of
elevated temperature. Transformer overheating
will result in a temporary shutdown of both
channels; the transformer will automatically
resets itself when it has cooled to a safe

Crown’s Three-Year, No-Fault, Full Warranty
Crown offers a Three-Year, No-Fault, Full Warranty for every new Crown amplifier—an unsurpassed industry standard. With this unprecedented No-Fault protection, your new Crown
amplifier is warranted to meet or exceed original specifications for the first three years of
ownership. During this time, if your amplifier fails, or does not perform to original specifications, it will be repaired or replaced at our expense. About the only things not covered by this
warranty are those losses normally covered by insurance and those caused by intentional
abuse. And the coverage is transferable, should you sell your amplifier.
See your authorized Crown dealer for full warranty disclosure and details. For customers
outside of the USA, please contact your authorized Crown distributor for warranty information
or call 219-294-8200.
