Way back in the disco 80s we witness a new specialist music audio power amplifier setting new benchmarks in industry standard of power amplifier requirements with bulky thunderous racking model units like the pro Crest Audio 8001, Crest Audio 9001 and a massive mighty monster the Crest 10001. It’s possible that they will set fresh rival standers to QSC rmx and Ecler Pam with there new upfront designed CC series amps.
This two channels Crest Vs900 audio power amplifier integrates a well structured cost-effective electronic layout design with great degree of component precision providing a stereo sound audio exceptional sonic accuracy. Crest is well known for its long-term working reliability and the sort after down to earth features that are frequently required in a variety of sound system rental environments of professional disco entertainment applications.
The crest audio amplifier Vs900’s has a really remarkably pleasant pricing to performance ratio this is mainly resulted from the innovative acoustic engineering and highly efficient state of the art manufacturing process at the Crest’s modern USA factory plant facility accompanied by nearly two decades of being at the forefront of sound equipment professional amplifier designing. There has been no cutting of corners or compromises in the electronic PCB component selection or the testing quality control.
In every single respect, this audio crest Vs 900 endorses the legendary mobile disco Audio tradition of on tour roadworthy ruggedness and strait up sound reliability.
The Vs900 amp owns the same control type of circuitries components the Tour Class protection switch out features as used on the Crest’s CA 12, CKS, CKV 400, CKX and crest audio cpx 2600 Series power club amplifiers. This is reason why the Vs900 can easily endure and overcome virtually any sort of mishap, sound problem or PA system stress coming from uncontrolled ‘upstream’ sound frequency oscillation to extreme club nightlife ambient temperature heating or accidental DJ speaker monitor shorting it without damage to internal component circuitry PCB or other connected dj speakers on the sound system.
Each one of the sound channels can deliver a minimum of 250 watts at 8 ohms, 450 watts at 4 ohms and 550 watts at 2 ohms 1kHz 1% THD+N. In the bridged mono mode, it is able to comfortably deliver 900 watts at 8 ohms and 1100 watts into 4 ohms 1kHz 1% THD+N. The vs crest audio power amplifier is front to side panel fan cooled, with a two speed AC fan units. The VS 900 crest audio amp has circuitry to protect itself and the speaker inductive loading from output short circuits so no DC voltage on outputs and thermal cutout overload protection.
The amplifier dose also include circuitry to gradually increase gain to attenuator setting levels at the point the vs amplifier unit is first turned on, and circuitry for impedance sensing and automatic active clip limiting.
The main downside to this amp is on the back panel there is only one quart inch jack input this makes it hard to slave a second unit and not so versatile for wiring up with no XLR’S or even a extra phone-0 input would be better nothing at all. I personally would rather pay a bigger price to have these extra facilities onboard.
