Audio professionals in search of a cost-effective professional audio amplifier will be impressed with the Crown Audio CDi 4|300BL, a 4-Channel DriveCore Series power amplifier that utilizes technology derived from the flagship Crown DriveCore Install series amplifiers, providing an impressive mix of high-performance, rich feature set, and competitive cost. The CDi 4|300BL offers streamlined functionality for most small- to medium-sized installations such as restaurants, retail stores, and more.

The CDi 4|300BL comes with BLU link, adding the ability to send and receive channels over HARMAN’s digital audio BUS. The amplifier is capable of driving up to 70/100 Vrms speaker loads without requiring a transformer and comes pre-loaded with JBL speaker tunings to help make installations quicker and easier. The CDi 4|300BL features an Ethernet port for using HARMAN’s HiQnet Audio Architect software for configuration and operation over a standard TCP/IQ network. The rear panel includes terminal block inputs and barrier strip outputs.
