The CDi Series of Crown amplifiers are professional tools designed and built for

installed sound applications. “CDi” stands for Contractor Digital Intelligence. The series includes two models which are identical except for output power: CDi 1000 and

CDi 2000. Both are rugged and lightweight, and offer unmatched value in their class.

CDi Series amplifiers feature an LCD screen with DSP speaker presets for crossover frequencies, EQ, limiting, compression, delay, and a subharmonic synthesizer. Other features include a switch-mode universal power supply, useful function indicators, proportional-speed fan-assisted cooling, removable Phoenix-style inputs, barrier strip outputs for low-Z or 70V/140V loads, short-circuit protection and more.


Accurate, uncolored sound with very low distortion for the best in music and voice reproduction

Advanced protection circuitry guards against: shorted outputs, open circuits, DC, mismatched loads, general overheating, high-frequency overloads and internal faults

Extremely versatile, handling a wide range of speaker impedances and outputs

Switch-mode universal power supply

Integrated DSP with LCD front panel display

Speaker presets for crossover frequencies, EQ, limiting, compression, delay, and subharmonic synthesis

All products fill 2U rack spaces and weigh under 19 pounds

Barrier strip outputs for low-Z or 70V/140V loads, removable Phoenix-style inputs
