Question about Crown CE1000 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

CE 1000 Hi Dan, thanks for your quick response. In this day of age everybodys in a hurry. We started working on audio gear when it was HI FI and you could heat a medium size room with tube gear, (about 45 years ago.) I"m looking for a shortcut to the problem figuring someone might have had this happen before. I don't do this for a living, it's out of nessesity. At a buck a watt this would be an expensive amp to replace, I have the schematics. Blessings, Jim.

Look first at the output transistors. Those are the most likelt defective parts. Due to the odd design of the output section, Crown amps are difficult to repair. If you get lucky, only the outputs are smoked. Also, make sure that you change all of hte transistors for the channel that has a bad one.

Hi,I have an old stereo amplifier Model A-604R,and i want to make the most use i could from was my father's!! please help me connecting it,and can i connect it to a T.v?

Yes, if the TV has RCA-audio outputs, but TV audio electronics is hardly hi-fi; or get the TV-related audio from the cable/sat box. They always have RCA outputs. Jack them into the amp's input.

I need a schematic for a zenith hi fi model SF2550, circa 1959

This can be seen as Sam's Photofact # 447-14 and can be purchased for $7 at the following link:

Use the model number (SF4550) in the search.

Or, you may find this at a local library. Some carry the older Sams in paper format.

Com terminal on MC2205

Typically the black is common and the red positive. The only difference will be the direction in which the speaker cone moves. Either it will move outward or inward. In the correct connection polarity, the cone should move outward. Be careful that both speakers are connected the same way. This is actually just as important. If they are hooked up differently, they will be out of phase and you will notice a significant DROP in low end response.

Failed power transformer

With out make and model, I can not supply parts information. Please update this with that info. Also, depending upon the age of the unit, parts may not be available. Are you sure that the problem is the transformer? This part is rare to fail.

Hi i have an audio source 300 watt amp with a&b speaker outputs. the problem is that no sound comes from the left side outputs a or b. the right side works fine thank you mike

You have a blown channel. If you are experienced with electronics repair, use the right channel to assist in diagnosing the left. Both channels should be efectively identical. In most cases, the defective parts are the output transistors. You should be able to A/B the output amp sections.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Fault lights

I'm not sure what you mean when you say the channel 2 does not work in bridge mode. Bridge mode effectively turns the amp into a mono amp, thus there is no channel 1 or 2. The fans will only turn on when the heat is high enough, so that is not a problem. Please describe what you perceive as the problem with these and I'll try to help.

Crown com-tech 2 channel 400

One channel has failed and is in need of repair. There are some transistors inside that are "noisy" and sending signals down the line. This is a bit tricky to find, but a service shop that does audio repairs should be able to fix this. Figure about $15-$45 for parts depending upon what circuits are effected.

Need assistance on audio setup

Hi An2nymous07

For office system AV gear, your best bet is talk to a decent AV company. If they are any good will send out a guy to do up a quote on supply and install. It shouldn't cost you for the quote. Go to at least 2 companies, and compare prices. The reason you need to do this, is the price ranges from a few hundred dollars, to $200,000. The price is set by exactly what you want to to do, and the performance you need,

Speaker channel

You are not likely to find this online due to its age, but perhaps we can help to repair this. What exactly is the problem and do you have experience in repairing gear at all?
