YOU WILL NEED (not supplied):
CAUTION: Before you begin, make sure
your amplifier is disconnected from the
power source, with power switch in the
“off” position and all level controls
turned completely down (counterclockwise).
When using an equipment rack, mount units
directly on top of each other. Close any open
spaces in rack with blank panels. DO NOT
block side or front air vents.
• Two input wiring cables
• Two output wiring cables
• Rack for mounting amplifier (or a stable
surface for stacking)
WARNING: Before you start to set up
your amplifier, make sure you read and
observe the Important Safety Instructions found at the beginning of this
manual.
3.2 Voltage Selection
Figure 3.3 illustrates standard amplifier airflow.
Use a standard 19-inch (48.3 cm) equipment
rack. See Figure 3.2 for amplifier dimensions.
You may also stack amps without using a
cabinet.
NOTE: When transporting, amplifiers should be
supported at both front and back.
CAUTION: Before use, your amplifier
must be set to the correct operating
voltage for your local supply. Typically,
units are shipped from the factory with voltage
already set with the correct setting, but this
setting should be verified before first using the
amplifier.
The selected voltage is displayed on the top,
left side of the fuse drawer (see Figure 3.1). To
change the voltage setting; disconnect the power
source, then gently pry out the fuse casing from
the fuse drawer. Replace with the correct voltage
positioned to display on the top left side.

3.5 Choose Input Wire
and Connectors
3.6 Choose Output Wire
and Connectors
Crown recommends using pre-built or professionally wired, balanced line (two-conductor
plus shield), 22-24 gauge cables and connectors. You should use 3-pin male XLR cable
ends at the amplifier inputs. Unbalanced line
may also be used but may result in noise over
long cable runs.
Crown recommends using pre-built or professionally wired, high-quality, two- or fourconductor, heavy gauge speaker wire and
connectors. You may use banana plugs, spade
lugs or bare wire for your output connectors
(see Figure 3.5). To prevent the possibility
of short-circuits, wrap or otherwise insulate
exposed loudspeaker cable connectors.
Note: Male XLR signal links are also provided
on the amplifier to allow daisy-chaining of the
audio signal.
Refer to Figure 3.4 for correct XLR connector
pin assignments.
NOTE: Custom wiring should only be
performed by qualified personnel.
Using the guidelines below, select the appropriate size of wire based on the distance from
amplifier to speaker.

3.8 Connect to AC Mains
Connect your amplifier to the AC mains power
source (power outlet) with the supplied AC
power cordset. First, connect the IEC end of the
cordset to the IEC connector on the amplifier;
then, plug the other end of the cordset to the
AC mains.
4.1 Precautions
Your XLS Series amplifier is protected from
internal and external faults, but you should
still take the following precautions for optimum
performance and safety:
1.
NOTE: The third prong of this connector
(ground) is an important safety feature. Do not
attempt to disable this ground connection by
using an adapter or other methods.
Amplifiers don’t create energy. The AC mains
voltage and current must be sufficient to deliver
the power you expect. You must operate your
amplifier from an AC mains power source with
not more than 10% variation above or below
the amplifier’s specified line voltage and within
the specfied frequency requirements (indicated
on the amplifier’s back panel label). If you are
unsure of the output voltage of your AC mains,
please consult your electrician.
2.
Turn down the level of your audio source.
Turn down the level controls of the amplifier.
3. Turn on the “Power” switch. The Power
indicator should glow.
4. Turn up the level of your audio source to
an optimum level.
5. Turn up the Level controls on the amplifier until the desired loudness or power
level is achieved.
6. Turn down the level of your audio source
to its normal range.
If you ever need to make any wiring or installation changes, don’t forget to turn off the
amplifier and disconnect the power cord.
Use care when making connections,
selecting signal sources and controlling
the output level. The load you save may
be your own!
3.
Do not short the ground lead of an
output cable to the input signal ground.
This may form a ground loop and cause
oscillations.
4.
Never connect the output to a
power supply, battery or power
main. Electrical shock may result.
3.9 Startup Procedure
Use the following procedure when first turning
on your amplifier:
1.
2.
Before use, your amplifier first must be
configured for proper operation, including input and output wiring hookup.
Improper wiring can result in serious
operating difficulties. For information
on wiring and configuration, please
consult the Setup section of this
manual or, for advanced setup techniques, consult Crown’s Amplifier
Application Guide available online at
www.crownaudio.com.
5.
Tampering with the circuitry, or making
unauthorized circuit changes, may be
hazardous and invalidates all agency
listings.
6.
Never operate the amplifier with the
red Clip LEDs constantly flashing.
7.
Do Not overdrive the mixer, which will
cause a clipped signal to be sent to
the amplifier. Such signals will be reproduced with extreme accuracy, and loudspeaker damage may result.
8.
Never operate the amplifier with less
than the rated load impedance. Due to
the amplifier’s output protection, such
a configuration may result in premature
clipping and speaker damage.
9.
XLS Series amplifiers feature a built-in
Anti-Clip Limiter which, when selected,
will provide a high degree of protection
against amplifier clipping. Crown recommends activating the limiter whenever
sensible operation of the system cannot
be ensured.
Remember: Crown is not liable for
damage that results from overdriving
other system components.
For help with determining your system’s
optimum gain structure (signal levels)
please refer to the Crown Amplifier
Application Guide, available online at

5 Advanced Features
and Options
NOTE: For detailed information about
these Crown amplifier features, please
consult the Crown Amplifier Application
Guide, available on the Crown website
at www.crownaudio.com.
5.1 Protection Systems
Your Crown amplifier provides extensive protection and diagnostic capabilities, including
built-in anti-clip limiters, switchable high-pass
filters, output current limiting, DC protection,
fuses, and special thermal protection for the
unit’s transformers.
Figure 5.1 AntiClip Limiter switch
5.1.1 Anti-Clip Limiters
Your Crown amplifier has built-in Anti-Clip
Limiters which offer a degree of protection
to your loudspeakers. The Anti-Clip Limiters
work by dynamically reducing the amplifier
gain if the output stage is driven into clip,
thereby reducing potentially damaging distortion to moderate levels.
While some audio systems may already contain protective limiters preceeding the amplifier
in the system, additional use of the Anti-Clip
Limiters generally will not noticably affect
output quality. For systems without additional
protection, use of the Anti-Clip Limiters can
enhance your system’s output quality and prevent catastrophic damage to your speakers.
Regardless of whether or not the Anti-Clip Limiters are enabled, your amplifier should never
be operated at a level which causes the frontpanel Clip LEDs to illuminate constantly. While
the Anti-Clip Limiters help to prevent damage
due to signal distortion, your speakers can still
be damaged by excess power dissipation.
The Anti-Clip limiters are enabled by moving
the rear-panel Limiter switch to the “IN” position (see Figure 5.1).
5.1.2 High-Pass Filters
Very low frequency signals contain no useful
musical energy, waste valuable amplifier power
and headroom, and can be damaging to
Operation Manual
Figure 5.2 HighPass Filter switch
your speakers. Your Crown amplifier provides
switchable high-pass filters to remove these
signals from each channel’s output.
The fuse rating for your amplifier will also
be indicated on the amplifier back panel label
below the power connector (see Figure 5.4).
For each channel, a back-panel, three-position
switch provides optional settings of 30 Hz
(left), 15 Hz (center), or OFF (right) (see Figure
5.2). The 30 Hz setting is suitable for all fullrange and low-frequency applications. The 15
Hz setting may be selected when the amplifier
is being used to drive a sub-bass program;
use only with speakers that provide a useful
frequency response below 30 Hz. The OFF setting provides bypass of the high-pass filters,
for use when subsonic protection is provided
elsewhere in the system.
Crown amplifiers do not blow their fuses
unless something is wrong. Repeated fuse
failure typically indicates problems with the
amplifier or installation which should be corrected immediately.
5.1.3 Output Current Limiting
Output Current Limiting circuitry protects the
amplifier output stage from damage caused by
short circuit loads.
Figure 5.3 Fault
indicator
5.1.4 DC Protection
DC Protection disconnects the loudspeaker
load in the event of an output DC offset exceeding 2V. In such an event the yellow Fault LED
will illuminate (see Figure 5.3) and both amplifier
channels will be muted. In the majority of cases,
DC protection is indicative of a faulty amplifier
channel, and will be accompanied by an illuminated Clip LED, even with no input connected
and level controls set at minimum. If this is the
case, contact your dealer or service center.
5.1.5 Fuse
The high-voltage power supplies of your
Crown amplifier are protected by a fuse. The
fuse rating varies depending on model and
supply voltage as follows.
230V
120V
XLS202
T6.3A
T6.3A
XLS402
T6.3A
T10A
XLS602
T6.3A
T10A
Figure 5.4 Amplifier fuse rating
Should the fuse need to be replaced, take care
to follow these precautions:
1. Remove power before replacing.
2. Never replace the fuse with a higher rating
than specified; this could result in a
fire hazard.
3. IMPORTANT: The orientation of the fuse
drawer determines the operating voltage of
your amplifier. Should the fuse need to
be replaced, take care to replace the fuse
drawer so that the voltage numbers displayed on the top, left corner of the drawer
are correct for your local supply.
5.1.6 Thermal Protection
The Thermal Protection circuit will activate
should the internal heatsink temperature
exceed proper operating temperatures (194
degrees F, 90 degrees C). When the heatsink
temperature has fallen to a safe level, this
protection circuit will automatically be reset.
Principle causes of thermal protection are: 1)
Inadequate ventilation of the equipment rack;
2) Incorrect load impedance; 3) Output cable
short circuit; 4) Blocked air vent; 5) Heatsinks
in need of cleaning; 6) Cooling fan failure.
The cause of your amplifier’s thermal protection
state should be determined and corrected as
soon as possible. Without correction, the Thermal Protection circuit will typically reactivate.

6 Troubleshooting
CONDITION: No sound.
CONDITION: Normal operation.
POSSIBLE REASON:
POSSIBLE REASON:
• This is normal operation for your amp.
CONDITION: No power to the
amplifier.
POSSIBLE REASON:
• The amplifier’s “power” switch is off.
• The amplifier is not plugged into the
power receptacle.
• The amplifier’s high-voltage power
supply fuse has blown. Refer to the
Advanced Features and Options section
of this manual for instruction on fuse
replacement.
• The amplifier has just been turned on and
is still in the 4-second turn-on delay.
• The amplifier is in “fault” mode. A Fault
status can be triggered when one of the
amplifier’s protection circuits is activated.
First disconnect your speakers from the
affected channel(s) one by one to determine if one of the loads is shorted. If the
indicators return to normal status, then
try a different speaker or cable to determine where the short is occurring. If no
short can be found, turn off the amp and
allow the amp to cool. If indicators do not
return to normal after restarting your amp,
check the fuse and replace if necessary,
or return amp to Crown or an authorized
Crown Service Center for servicing.
• No input signal.
• Input signal level is very low.
• Level controls are turned down.
CONDITION: Distorted sound.
• Speakers not connected.
POSSIBLE REASON:
• Input signal level is too high. Enable
“anti-clip” Limiter switch. If Clip indicators continue to illuminate frequently,
turn down your amplifier level controls.
NOTE: Your amplifier should never be
operated at a level which causes the Clip
LEDs to illuminate constantly.

8 Service
Crown amplifiers are quality units that rarely
require servicing. Before returning your unit
for servicing, please contact Crown Technical
Support to verify the need for servicing.
This unit has very sophisticated circuitry which
should only be serviced by a fully trained technician. This is one reason why each unit bears
the following label:
CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, do
not remove covers. No user serviceable
parts inside. Refer servicing to a qualified technician.
8.1 Worldwide Service
Service may be obtained from an authorized
service center. (Contact your local Crown/
Amcron representative or our office for a list
of authorized service centers.) To obtain service, simply present the bill of sale as proof
of purchase along with the defective unit to an
authorized service center. They will handle the
necessary paperwork and repair.
For warranty service, we will pay for ground
shipping both ways in the United States. Contact Crown Factory Service or Technical Support to obtain prepaid shipping labels prior to
sending the unit. Or, if you prefer, you may
prepay the cost of shipping, and Crown will
reimburse you. Send copies of the shipping
receipts to Crown to receive reimbursement.
Your repaired unit will be returned via UPS
ground. Please contact us if other arrangements are required.
Factory Service Shipping Instructions:
1.
Before sending a Crown product to the
factory for service, first call the Crown
Service Department for a return authorization (RA) number.
2.
Remember to transport your unit in the original
factory pack.
3.
8.2 US and Canada Service
Service may be obtained from the factory. It is
important that you have your copy of the bill of
sale as your proof of purchase.
8.2.1 Factory Service
To obtain factory service, fill out the service
information page found in the back of this
manual and send it along with your proof of
purchase and the defective unit to the Crown
factory.
Operation Manual
Be sure to fill out the service information
form that follows and enclose it with
your shipment, either inside the box
or in a packing slip envelope securely
attached to the outside of the shipping
carton. Do not send the service information form separately.
To ensure the safe transportation of your
unit to the factory, ship it in an original
factory packing container. If you don’t
have the original carton, you may obtain
a product service foam-in-place shipping pack from the Crown Factory Service Department at the number listed
below. For non-warranty service, you
may also provide your own shipping
pack. Minimum recommended requirements for materials are as follows: 275
P.S.I. burst test Double-Wall carton that
allows for 2-inch solid Styrofoam on
all six sides of unit or 3 inches of
plastic bubble wrap on all six sides of
unit; securely seal the package with an
adequate carton sealing tape. Do not
use light boxes or “peanuts.” Damage
caused by poor packing cannot be covered under warranty.
4.
Do not ship the unit in any kind of cabinet (wood or metal). Ignoring this warning may result in extensive damage to
the unit and the cabinet. Accessories are
not needed—do not send the product
documentation, cables and other hardware.
If you have any questions, please call or write
the Crown Technical Support Group.

We will remedy any defect, regardless of the
