crown 2402 Parallel mono or Crown Ce2000 bridged
« on: September 25, 2005, 12:57:32 pm »

Again thanks for all the help. With buying the (2)sr4719x and (2)sr4731x's i'm not able to buy another power amp at the moment but know it's inevitable. Which would work best for the sound and the speakers? I'm running the subs parallel mono off the macro 2402 and the tops stereo off the ce2000. Could i or should i move the 2402 to the tops and still go parallel mono and use a crown ce2000 bridged for each sub for now? I have another ce2000 i can move from monitors for the other sub or will the 2402 be more efficent and better sounding on the subs even though it's around 1000wt vs 1900wt per speaker? This is the using what i have scenario for the moment. Thanks! Almost a nightmare-i forgot to switch the amp to parallel mode after installing the jumper and hooking both speakers to channel one--didn't take but a minute to find that out quick! Agh!!

OK, i will answer this because I have more than enough experience with this exact problem-- Use neither of those amps for a 4719x at any time.  bridging a ce2000 to one and turning it up causes it to  literally shut off and start blinking at you until it cools off.  Running a 2402 (even in stereo) will make it fart at you until you turn it down and let it cool off, and don't go thinking that fans will help anything either.  

the best option is 1 K2 bridged for each 4719x and use your current hungry ma2402 for highs.  You will be glad you did.  Next best maybe a ce4k or a plx3402 (just not in the same rack as a crown)
