Crest Audio® proudly announces it is now shipping the new Pro-LITE™ 2.0 power amplifier. Featuring an efficient design and built on the solid, three-decade legacy of Crest Audio amplifiers, the Pro-LITE 2.0 provides high power and rock-solid performance in an ultra-efficient lightweight package for all professional audio applications.

The Crest Audio Pro-LITE 2.0 amplifier is designed with an advanced, high-speed class D design with a switch-mode power supply that reduces weight while increasing reliability, thermal efficiency and output power in parallel, stereo and bridged modes. The Pro-LITE 2.0 boasts two channels with independent, fourth-order 100 Hz crossovers and power ratings of 540 watts per channel at 4 ohms stereo (up to 2,000 watts bridged @ 4 ohms) at just 11.6 lbs. A robust power supply allows these amplifiers to deliver consistent, stable performance with low frequencies.

Pro-LITE Series power amps are built every bit as strong and solid as audio pros expect from Crest Audio, with heavy-duty circuit boards and added emphasis on mission-critical components like extra-large capacitors and inductors that optimize 2-ohm operation. The onboard protection suite includes Crest Audio's proprietary ACL™ Automatic Clip Limiting circuitry, which prevents the amplifier from sending potentially damaging clipped signals to the loudspeakers, as well as DC, Temp, Signal and Active safeguards, all referenced on the front panel with LED indicators. The Pro-LITE Series is backed by a free five-year extended warranty.

The Crest Audio Pro-LITE 2.0 is available now from authorized Crest Audio dealers.
