The CDi DriveCore Series is an evolution in amplification, providing an impressive mix of high-performance; rich feature set, and competitive cost.  Using technology derived from our flagship Installed Sound amplifier (Crown DriveCore Install series), the CDi DriveCore 2|600 offers streamlined functionality to work in almost any medium sized installation such as cinema, houses of worship, bars, lounges, and more.  Designed for ease-of-use in a variety of applications, the 2|600 is a 2-channel amp that includes network control/monitoring, high-level DSP, front-panel interface, and support for driving up to 100Vrms speaker loads without requiring a transformer.  The entire CDi DriveCore line comes pre-loaded with JBL speaker tunings to help make installations quicker and easier.
  • DriveCore Technology – Crown’s proprietary DriveCore technology eliminates hundreds of components within each amplifier, reducing the variability of component values, increasing reliability, resulting in incredible audio fidelity from an efficient design.
  • Network Control and Monitoring – Through Harman’s HiQnet Audio Architect software, the CDi DriveCore can be controlled, configured, and monitored through standard TCP/IQ network.
  • DSP – On-board Digital Signal Processor in each amplifier allows for custom configuration • Input Router • Input Delay – Up to 1000ms • Input Parametric EQ – 8 band • Crossover • Output Parametric EQ – 8 band • Output Delay – Up to 100ms • LevelMAX™ Limiter
  • BLU link (BL models only) – Both receive and send channels over HARMAN’s 256 channel, fault-tolerant audio BUS, BLU link
  • Direct Drive 70/100Vrms Output – Each output channel is capable of provide either 70V or 100V for high impedance applications.
  • Front-Panel Interface – Completely configure the amplifier using an intuitive front-panel interface.
  • GPIO/AUX Port – Recall presets, mute channels, monitor faults, power on/off the amplifier, and more through a combined GPIO/AUX Port.3
