The Crown Macro-Tech Series. No compromises, no gimmicks. Just brilliant engineering backed by superior manufacturing, support, and an unsurpassed commitment to quality. Like all Crown amps, the defining characteristic of the Macro-Tech Series is sonic accuracy.

A tight, rock-solid low end, with smooth, detailed highs and a well-defined midrange. In short, the most accurate reproduction of an audio signal you’ve ever heard. And because we put the quality of sound above all else, a Crown is the most coveted amplifier in the business.

  • Ultra-Low Distortion: Crown's patented Grounded Bridge™ circuitry generates incredible voltage swings with ultra-low distortion and superior reliability.
  • ODEP(R) Protection: Patented Output Device Emulation Protection (ODEP) protects the amplifier and keeps the show going under adverse conditions that cause lesser amplifiers to fail. Front panel indicators show each channel's ODEP status. Several PIPTM modules also provide powerful ODEP-driven features.
  • Distortion Indicator: Advanced Input/Output Comparator (IOC(R)) alerts you if the amplifier causes any distortion of 0.05% or more.
  • PIP compatibility: Accommodates Programmable Input Processor (PIP) accessories that are used to customize the amplifier for specific applications. MA 02-Series amps are PIP2 compatible. MA-3600VZ accepts only the PIP-Lite module when fitted with the IQ-PIP-USP2 Adapter.
  • Enhanced PIP2™ (Programmable Input Processor) connector accepts new accessory modules that tailor the amplifier to suit specific applications, such as networking via HiQnet™ or TCP/IQ™.
  • Selectable Mono Modes: Bridge-Mono mode provides double output voltage and Parallel-Mono mode provides double output current from a single channel.
  • Patented Variable Impedance (VZ®)power supplies for each channel provide excellent crosstalk characteristics and the best power matching to your load.

    Note: Specifications relate to120 volt, 60 Hz units in Stereo mode with 8-ohm loads and an input sensitivity of 26 dB gain at 1 kHz rated power unless otherwise specified. Specifications for units supplied outside the U.S.A. may vary slightly at different AC voltages and frequencies.


  • Output Power: See power charts below.
  • Load Impedance: Safe with all types of loads. Rated for 2 to 16 ohms in Stereo, 4 to 16 ohms in Bridge-Mono and 1 to 4 ohms in Parallel-Mono mode.
  • Voltage Gain at 1 kHz, 8 ohm rated output:
    • 132:1 ±12% or 42 dB ±1 dB gain at 0.775 volt sensitivity.
    • 71:1 ±12% or 37 dB ±1 dB gain at 1.4-volt sensitivity.
    • 20:1 ±3% or 26 dB ±0.25 dB gain at the maximum level setting.
  • Required AC Mains (MA-5002VZ): 50 or 60 Hz; 100, 120, 200, 208, 230, 240VAC (±10%). All units draw 90 watts or less at idle. Current, voltage and frequency requirements are provided on unit’s back panel. AC Line Connector: MA-5002VZ: 10 AWG cordset with NEMA TT30P plug is provided on 120VAC, 60 Hz North American units.


  • Frequency Response: ±0.1 dB from 20 Hz to 20 kHz at 1 watt.
  • Phase Response: ±10 degrees from 10 Hz to 20 kHz at 1 watt.
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio:A-weighted: Better than 105 dB below rated full bandwidth power.
  • 20 Hz to 20 kHz: Better than 100 dB below rated full bandwidth power.
  • Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) at full-bandwidth power:MA-5002VZ: 1 kHz rated power, 0.05% or less true THD.
  • Intermodulation Distortion (IMD): MA-5002VZ: Less than 0.05% from rated power to 35 dB below rated power at 8 ohms.
  • Damping Factor: Greater than 1,000 from 10 Hz to 400 Hz.
  • Slew Rate: (Slew rates are limited to useful levels for ultrasonic/RF protection.) Greater than 13 volts per microsecond.
  • Selectable Sensitivities: Choose from three input sensitivities: 0.775 volts or 1.4 volts for full rated power into 8 ohms, or a voltage gain of 26 dB.
  • Detented Level Controls: Detented level controls make it easy to set and reset precise levels.
  • VZ Power Supply Technology: The Macro-Tech 3600VZ and 5002VZ use patented power-supply technology which provides enormous power density and an optimum power match with a wide range of loads.
  • Current Indicator: (Macro-Tech 5002VZ only) Cutting edge current flow/current limit (ILOAD/ILIMIT) indicators tell you if current is flowing to the loads, and if the loads demand more current than the amplifier can deliver.
  • On-Board Compressors: (Macro-Tech 5002VZ only) Each channel has a custom compressor that reduces peak signal levels during input overload and output clipping. The compressors can be set for fast or slow operation, or turned off for output clipping.
  • Loudspeaker Offset Integration (LOI): (Macro-Tech 5002VZ only) Each channel has a high-performance loudspeaker protection circuit that compensates for DC offset to protect woofers, and filters ultrasonic frequencies to protect tweeters.
  • THX Approved: (Macro-Tech 2402 and 5002VZ only) Lucasfilm(R) approved for THX(R) sound system installations. No-Fault Warranty: Three-Year, No-Fault, Fully Transferable Warranty completely protects your investment and guarantees its specifications.
