Question about Crown CE1000 2-Channel Amplifier

CROWN CE1000- slips into fault immediately after connection

CROWN CE1000- powers up fine, goes through fault protection testing fine, but unit clips and slips into fault protection (cycling) immediately after connected to a speaker.

Using brand new single pair 16-20 speaker line (3 ft long) with working 8ohm speaker (used 3 diff speakers that have been verified to work perfectly)

Both channels do this, before ever rolling gain up, right after connecting to speaker.

Any ideas where to start?

If ur output power amp is defective u will have that problem - meaning the moment u connect load across it it will go into circuit protection to limit/stop excessive output current. make sure the speaker terminals are connected to +/- output terminals. in bridge mode use only channel 1 and that too with 4 ohms speaker only otherwise amp will clip. considering all connections are okay if it still clips when speaker is connected, u have a faulty power amp section. this the way ur amp is designed

Clip led


That particular channel is blown. These are not the easiest units to repair. Given that this is a commercial amp, I would recommend that this unit be brought to an authorized Crown service center for repair. Expect parts cost in the $50 range plus the labor charge.

It's very likely that the main power amp section has a faulty part on it that is presumably causing an overload. You should check the devices on the main heat sink of the amp section.

Fan running


This is a very sophisticated amp and it will turn the fan on at various speeds when it feels the need for it. Of course, if it's running REALLY hot, going into thermal protection and/or posting a fault you might take a look at it to see if it CAN turn (no obstructions).

Upon " power on" "fault" lights blink then power unit off.


If you're happy to have a look inside the amplifier you can disconnect it from the mains (important bit), then take the lid off and have a look. It doesn't hurt to look for components that are obviously at fault, (burnt, bits missing, no longer connected to the board etc). Be advised there will be some charge in the capacitors still so don't go poking around too much.
If you find something clearly not right, if you have the tools and skills then you could replace the component, or send it for repair. Be advised though that sometimes a fault elsewhere may cause a component to fail.

Before asuming it is the power transistors check the power on relay first as mine had the same proble and it was because of the Relay that did not switch on the one channel or amp (remember this is a power amp and consist of two mono amps)

Unfortunately Crown amps are not the easiest to repair as they utilize multiple levels of amplification. Since you saw a flash, a resistor probable smoked, I would recommend that you bring this to an authorized service center.
