Crown’s CTs Series amplifiers provide exceptional performance, flexibility and value for installed sound applications. CTs Series amplifiers feature independent selection of high and low impedance operation for a specific channel, plus power levels and features that were carefully chosen to match the requirements of fixed install design. Easy integration with HiQnet™ and CobraNet™ allows CTs amplifiers to deliver a comprehensive lineup of monitoring and control features along with digital audio transport for an award-winning digital audio solution.


  • High power density - eight channels in a 3RU chassis
  • Crown Switching Power Supply for lighter weight
  • Selectable "Constant-Voltage" or low-impedance (4/8 ohm) operation per channel-pair
  • 100V direct outputs
  • Legendary Crown class-I (BCA) and AB+B output topologies offer the best in amplifier reliability
  • Perfect independent power solutions for multi-zoned systems· "FIT" (Fault Isolation Topology) circuitry isolates fault conditions without affecting neighboring channels
  • Comprehensive array of indicators provide accurate diagnostics
  • Accepts MC accessory modules.

  Product warrenty information

All instruments in our catalogs and on our shopping site carry the manufacturers' warranties against defects in parts and workmanship. Should a defect occur within the manufacturer's warranty period, contact us immediately.

We will be glad to help facilitate the repair or replacement as specified by the manufacturer. The manufacturer will determine whether the defect is covered under their warranty; we do not make that determination.

Please note: U.S.-based manufacturers WILL NOT honor warranties for items sold and shipped outside the U.S. Also, if a school, school district, or board of education purchases an instrument and resells it to an individual, the manufacturer considers the warranty to be void. Warranties are extended only to the original purchaser!

All warranties, stated or implied are held with the product manufacturer and they vary from item to item. Consult the documentation that came with your product for details in addition to the information below.
