Crown K1

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by russ wheeler, Nov 16, 2003.


  1. I've been thinking about getting a Crown K1 power amp, and I see that most places have them for %50 off list price.

    Does anyone use one of these, and are they pretty reliable? I am tired of the fan noise, and it would be great to have no noise!

    Thanks.
     
  2. I have the K2. It's a wonderful amp: very powerful, no noise, has a cut-off to standby when no signal is going through it (like between songs) that works perfectly!

    My only beef is the K2 is very heavy and it's eccentrically heavy so take care when handling the rack and placing it on a cab: the rack will be very front heavy and back light if you catch my drift.
     
  3. I think that I'm going to get it.

    Thanks for the heads up, JimS.
     
  4. You CANNOT go wrong with the Crowns! If you've got the bread...they're the ones!
