The Crown CTs 4200USP/CN and CTs 8200USP/CN power amplifiers have an integrated 3rd generation, DSP-based PIP™ (Programmable Input Processor) input module. It connects the amplifier to a 100 Mbps Ethernet network allowing it to be remotely controlled and monitored via System Architect™ software. In addition, the input module allows the transport of real-time digital audio via CobraNet™ over the same Ethernet network.
The CTs 4200USP/CN and CTs 8200USP/CN amplifiers connect to a HiQnet™ audio control/monitor network using standard 100 Mbps Ethernet hardware (switches, Network Interface Cards, and cables). CobraNet™ audio is available over the same 100 Mbps Ethernet network, providing a simple-to-install, single plug solution for audio distribution, control, and monitoring
Pip Lite Module
PIP Lite Integrates Ethernet-based IQ Network control via 100-Mb TCP/IQ protocol for digital control of analog devices. Since audio signals are not converted to digital, a larger dynamic range is possible. Digital signal control allows for error trapping and a proactive response; provides input compression, multi mode average power limiting, peak power limiting,thermal limiter, clip limiting, and load monitoring. Requires FREE IQwic™ software for initial setup.
High Power Density
All two channel models and four channel model in a 2RU chassis, eight channel model in a 3RU chassis.
Switched-Mode Power Supply
This advanced power supply is highly efficient and optimized for maximum power transfer from the AC line through the Class D output stage to the loudspeakers.
Legendary Crown class-I (BCA) and AB+B output topologies offer the best in amplifier reliability.
Selectable"Constant-Voltage"or low-impedance (4/8 ohm) operation per channel on2-channel models,and per channel-pair on 4-and 8-channel models.
