CREST CPX 1500 Power Amp

Crest CPX 1500: Series Power Amplifiers: Four rugged, ultra-affordable power designs in the great Crest Audio tradition. In typical Crest Audio fashion, we’ve over-built and over-engineered the CPX Series. We included built-in subwoofer crossovers, low-cut filters to prevent woofer cone flutter, fan cooling, Speakon® output connectors and much, much more. Gain Comparator Limiting: When a signal has waveform peaks that exceed the amps’ power-supply rails, waveforms get chopped off, or “clipped.” This undesirable distortion most often happens when the amp is turned up too high (too much gain). GCL senses clipping or current limiting and dynamically reduces the gain for a few milliseconds. You can drive the CPX amp to its maximum and beyond without hearing audible distortion.
