Highly recommended for Home use.


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.



A true audio bargain


I am using this in a combined stereo/home theater system driven by either a Yamaha Aventage RX A1070 receiver or a Schiit Audio preamp, driving a pair of PSB T2 towers. It sounds like the music. No noise, no audible problems, just seemingly limitless reserves of power. Compared to "audiophile" amplifiers the price/performance ratio is off the charts.

Incredible power amp


Picked this for my 4ohm home audio speakers and nothing can touch this amp for the money



Rugged Power Amp


The Crown XLS Drivecore 2 1502 Power Amp is a serious power amp. If you tour and need a road worthy power amp this is it. With up to 1550 watts of power there's plenty here to work with. And head room to spare. With auto sleep timer, remote power trigger &, efficient cooling fans this is the a steal at this price.

Crank some power into your speakers!


Crown makes great, reliable and sturdy audio products. This power amp is perfect for anyone looking to get the most out of their speakers. It's versatile with XLR and RCA connections, and it's compact enough to transport if need be. The security feature is a nice addition to keep people from messing with your settings, and it's easy to set up and figure out. I'd highly recommend this.

Built to last


Even though powered speakers have become more popular in recent years there is still a need for passive speakers and more importantly quality power amps. Crown has always been known for given people quality power amps that last you a very long time. The XLS1502 pushes 525 watts @ 4 ohms and 300 watts @ 8 ohms which is perfect for small cafes and venues.

Great Power Amp


This power amp is a great one to buy. It is very powerful and easy to use. These are great units.






Crown has always provided high quality power amps, and the 1502 is no exception. It sounds clean and loud going into my Yamaha speakers. I just use XLR cables to run audio into the amp, but it is nice to have the flexibility of 1/4 and RCA as well. Also, it's surprisingly light for a power amp with so much wattage.

Crown amps have always been work horses and this is no exception! Much lighter than older models, yet still the same great quality with the added bonuses such as on board DSP and crossovers, a security feature (which keeps people from messing with your settings) and a sleep mode which the user can set to turn off at a certain time. In bridged mode the 1502 still cranks out 1550 watts at 4 ohms!
