  • CDi 2x300BL Analog Power Amplifier with BLU Link

    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 2x300BL offers streamlined functionality to work in almost any small/medium sized installation such as restaurants, retail stores, and more. Designed for ease-of-use in a variety of applications, the 2x300BL 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 2x300BL also comes with BLU link, adding the ability to send and receive channels over HARMAN’s digital audio BUS. The entire CDi DriveCore line comes pre-loaded with JBL speaker tunings to help make installations quicker and easier.


    Key Features:


    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.



    On-board Digital Signal Processor in each amplifier allows for custom configuration


    Input Router

    Input Delay - Up to 1000ms

    Input Parametric EQ - 8 band


    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.
