    I thinking of upgrading my rig, I'll be using a Demeter HBP-1 preamp. Trying to find info on a crown amp that will drive a Bergantino 322 and match well the Demeter.

    I own the XLS402, and I love it. I use it through a BBE 383.

    It powers an Eden D410XLT, and a 2x15 with Peavey Black Widows no probs.

    Oh yeah...for info on every Crown power amp ever made, go here.

    I use a crown ce1000. The CE series amps are really nice. I have never used the XLS series, but I am sure they are great also. I was going to buy the XLS, but I went a step higher. The thing is heavy, but the sound will knock you over!

    I sometimes use a CE2000 to drive my Berg 322. Nice match. Very heavy power amp, however, especially when compared to Stews and QSC PLXs.
