Hello all, quick question.
Will a Crown XLS 2000 drive either an RE XXX 15" or 18".

Whichever sub I decide on will be in a sealed enclosure. 5-6 cube for the 15 and I don't even know what for the 18". Any suggestions?

Thanks guys!

You'll want way more than that. I had a pair of the 18's on an LG clone and they needed every bit of it. For the coin you would drop on the xls2000, take a look at the clones, or a peavey ipr7500. Those should do the trick smile.gif For space on the 18, I would recommend no less than 6 cuft, and probably more like 8 if you can manage.

(European models do not accept banana plugs.)

The beauty of the re's is that you will never kill the sub by bottoming it out. (well, never say never).
You are more likely to thermal it well before that happens.

and if you do, then you are a serious bass-addict my friend in need of more woofery woofer things.

Now if you want to play with pure dynamite you could even bridge the clone into 4-ohm, but it's only for the MOST fool hardy / hardcore... or so

I'd go for the IPR-7500. I was running a bridged xls1500 into each of my uxl18's and it rolled off pretty hard on the bottom end. The IPR seems like endless power now and I gained a lot of bottom end. I'll post up a comparison chart sometime.

(3) JTR Noesis 212HT (LCR)
(2) JTR Single 8 (wides)
(2) JTR Slanted 8 (sides)
(2) DIY Eminence 10" coax (rear Surrounds)
(2) JTR Orbit Shifters
(2) Mach5 UXL-18's sealed
(2) Soundsplinter 15's sealed
