Click image to open expanded view


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 4|1200 offers streamlined functionality to work in almost any large sized installation such as cinema, houses of worship, hotels, cruise lines, and more. 

Designed for ease-of-use in a variety of applications, the 4|1200 is a 4-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 and includes these integrated features: 
    • 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
  • Direct Drive 70/100Vrms Output: Each output channel is capable of providing 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.
  • Pre-loaded Speaker Tunings: For quicker and easier setup and installation.
