  • crown XTI1000 help

    I just got an xti1000 used for a home sub amp :D all I have done so far is plug and play, there is and EQ loaded into it and it actually sounds pretty darn good playing the last owners EQ settings.(I think this will be an awesome sub amp:D) I do plan on setting my own but would like to see what is in there now. I have the software on my 'puter but was wondering if I plug into the amp will it delete anything already there?
    I think it saves everything until you delete but just checking

    Number two: is there a fan control on this model? i could find nothing in the band manager software.
    and a related Q: i would like to change the fan to something quieter, would this be enough:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...6835226033#top

    bear in mind that this is home use but i have got the fan to run, although i would seldom play that loud and long.

    TIA

      This is the sound reinforcement forum. Subs or even multiples can fall under that.

      What is up with all the seemingly errant this/that forum policing. Plus it's a pro-audio amp

        Once again, and it's just my obviously immovable POV, it's the application that determines the proper forum, not the equipment. The OP stated that this is strictly for HT use in a residence. That is not pro sound.

        Although some would argue otherwise, the Crown XTI series are not thought of a s 'pro' amps by sound contractors. Just like "Pyle Pro" is definitely not 'pro'. The Crown Macro-Tech series ...now those are pro amps.

        Crown XTI's are actually better suited to home use than 'real' professional (read: rider approved) amps. Another reason why it's the wrong forum.

        Let me modify my response then to simply: "Read the manual".

          Macro-Techs are an end-of-life product. The XTI series sees lots of use in churches and other permanent installation type applications. "Pro" doesn't have to be top-of-the-line A-Tour gear.

          I can see how he might find more people in this section who would at least know how to use the amp's features.

          To the original poster - I wish I could be more help, but I don't have any hands-on experience with the XTI series. But if it works like most processors which can be externally controlled, if you connect it to your computer there should be some sort of option for you to upload the current settings and saving them. If not, then perhaps you could page through the parameters and write them all down before coming up with your own.

            The XTI are certainly pro use. There are fixed installations (which is what I mainly do when I do any commercial installs) and then there are touring use.

            This is the best sub forum to get questions answered on pro-audio gear whether the intent is home use or not.

            Let me ask this: What is the difference on configuring a shelf/notch filter for home use vs a public venue? Sorry but IMO you are being way too prickly about this.

              About 70Hz?

              Did I win?

                The answer is nothing since you take the same steps to configure either way.

                  Mips, you have quickly become an insufferable bore. Is it possible you could go find somewhere else to act this way?

                    An opinion: This sort of acrimonious exchange is far from constructive.
