I bought this amplifier to replace two Behringer Europower EP1500 amplifiers that I sold. I read many reviews on the Crown XLS drive core 2 series and all of them were extremely positive even for home use. I use the XLS 1502 to power 2 Cerwin Vega VS-150 loudspeakers. The results are incredible. The Crown can power them effortlessly with no fan noise and way more volume than I really need. I like the on board DSP functionality and display options. This amp is incredibly light too, compared to the Behringer which was about 40 lbs. Class D amplifier technology is excellent these days and Crown does not disappoint.
