Wordsmith for mobile electronics, Demo Days dude, and a generally swell guy.

During my 16 years as a Crutchfield Advisor, I helped thousands of customers pick out the right gear for their applications. I quickly learned what kinds of problems they want to solve and what they need to know to get there.

In 2013, I joined the Creative team as a writer for our mobile audio categories. I still pull on those countless hours of conversations with our customers when I’m researching new products.

A few years ago, I began our in-house “Demo Days” project where I regularly set up product demos. These demos give our Advisors even more opportunities to see, hear, and touch many of the home and car audio products we sell. In fact, I often call upon Advisors to help assemble these demos, to add to their real-world installation experience with the gear.

I’ve always enjoyed playing with electronics and stereo gear — from setting up a stereo system for the after-prom party, to solving some of the A/V issues in our family’s home. It never occurred to me that I’d be lucky enough to keep on doing it for a living.

Background
  • Joined Crutchfield in 1997
  • Joined the Crutchfield writing team in 2013
  • Is one of our installation experts with hundreds of hours of experience installing car audio systems and setting up home audio/video gear
  • Runs Crutchfield “Demo Days” – opportunities for our Advisors to get hands-on time with our products
  • Completed our thorough in-house Advisor training, learning about the ins and outs of our various products
  • Attends dozens of vendor training events each year
  • Authored dozens of Crutchfield articles and hundreds of car audio and pro audio product presentations

Efficient powerhouse


When you’re up on stage, you don’t want to worry about having enough power for your speakers and monitors. With the robust power from Yamaha’s P-Series amplifiers, you won’t have to worry. They work effectively in a wide variety of venues, such as dance clubs, music halls, convention centers, and houses of worship. Their strong power output, versatile channel configurations, and portability make them a great choice for any event.


A blend of features and performance


The rear panel inputs and outputs accommodate a wide variety of pro audio gear.


Yamaha’s P2500S amp delivers 250 watts RMS per channel at 8 ohms, 310 watts per channel at 4 ohms, and up to 1300 watts bridged at 4 ohms. EEEngine (Energy Efficient Engine) technology effectively reduces AC power consumption and heat generation without sacrificing power output. Combine that with its variable-speed cooling fan, and you get an amp that runs cool, only drawing big-time current when it needs it. The gain controls and variable high-pass and low-pass filters let you pair these amps with just about any non-powered speakers. Yamaha’s YS processing balances the power output to perfectly match the power handling of Yamaha’s Club Series speakers.


Yamaha’s P2500S amp includes balanced XLR and 1/4″ TRS inputs, as well as 5-way binding posts, 1/4″ outputs, and Neutrik Speakon® outputs for the speakers. Rack mounts are included, so you can install multiple amps in one rack to power your multi-speaker setup.

    Features

    P-Series Power Amplifier: The Yamaha P-Series P2500S power amplifier
    delivers solid, professional-quality power in a wide range of configurations
    designed to suit a variety of applications. The unit offers three operating
    modes – Stereo (250W x 2ch in 8Ω or 310W x 2ch in
    4Ω), Parallel (250W x 2ch in 8Ω
    or 310W x 2ch in 4Ω), and Bridge
    (620W x 1ch in 8Ω).

    • Stereo: In Stereo mode, Channels A and B operate independently
      (as with a conventional stereo amplifier). The Channel A input goes to the
      Channel A output jacks, and the Channel B input goes to the Channel B output
      jacks.
    • Parallel: In Parallel mode, the unit outputs a mono source
      through twin amplifier systems. The Channel A input signal is output through
      both the Channel

      A and Channel B output jacks. The Channel B input jacks do not function.
      Channel A and B volumes can be independently adjusted.
    • Bridge: In Bridge mode, the unit operates as a single high-power
      amp. The Channel A input signal is output from the Bridge output jacks. To
      adjust the volume, you must use the Channel A volume control knob.

    Note: The amplifiers two output channels have independent volume controls
    (31-step)
    located on the front-panel.

    Inputs/Outputs: To provide the most versatile connectivity possible,
    The P2500S is equipped with Neutrik Speakon output jacks and 1/4″ output jacks
    for each channel, in addition to 5-way binding posts. Balanced XLR and 1/4″ TRS
    phone jacks are provided for channel inputs A-B.

    High-Pass & Low-Pass Filters: The Yamaha P2500S is equipped with
    independent high-pass and low-pass filters on each channel, so you can optimize
    the output for a subwoofer or full range system. The high-pass and low-pass
    filters are variable (25-150Hz).

    Perfect Match for Yamaha Club Series Speakers: Yamaha’s audio
    engineers have specifically designed the new P-S Series power amplifiers to be
    perfect companions to the popular Club Series loudspeakers. To achieve this,
    they made sure that the amplifiers are capable of delivering power that matches
    the power handling capabilities of the Club Series Speakers, and equipped them
    with YS Processing (Yamaha Speaker Processing) to deliver a signal that will
    result in optimum system performance. The P-Series power amplifier can also be
    used with practically any loudspeaker PA system.

    EEEngine (Energy Efficient Engine) Technology: EEEngine (Energy
    Efficient Engine) Technology makes more efficient use of AC power by reducing
    power consumption and heat generation without sacrificing output power or sound
    quality. When power requirements are low, the system uses a highly efficient
    current buffer to transparently switch input power on and off as needed. As
    power requirements increase, an independently responding auxiliary power line
    supplies additional power as required. Output isn’t compromised because the
    auxiliary power line is driven by the power supply voltage which maintains
    maximum output to the speaker load.

    Protection Circuitry + Cooling Fan: Comprehensive protection includes
    power on/off muting, DC detection, thermal protection, current limiting, and a
    protective cover for the attenuators. The Protection indicator lights up and
    sound output is automatically muted whenever the unit’s protective circuitry is
    operating. The amplifier also features a variable cooling fan for quiet,
    efficient cooling. The Temp indicator lights up if the unit is running hot.

    Rack Mountable: The Yamaha P2500S power amp is rack mountable with a
    2U chassis size.

    SpeakerCompare simulates the sound of home and car speakers through your headphones. It lets you compare sonic characteristics between speakers so that you can make a more informed shopping decision.

    Why selecting your headphones is important


    SpeakerCompare tailors your listening experience to the exact headphones you have, so that what you hear is comparable to auditioning speakers side-by-side in person. Knowing which model headphones you’re using lets us remove any sonic coloring from your experience.

    Two different listening modes

    In an actual listening room, you’d find that some speakers play louder than others when fed the same amount of power. In equal power mode, you’ll hear these differences in loudness as they naturally occur between speakers.

    In equal volume mode, we’ve made the loudness of each speaker about the same. This gives you a more direct comparison of subtle voicing differences between speakers.

    Nothing beats listening to speakers in your space

    SpeakerCompare gives you a sense of the sonic differences. But performance in the real world is affected by the acoustics of your car or home, your choice of amplification, and your source material. We still believe that the gold standard for auditioning speakers is hearing them in your own environment — that’s why we offer a 60-day money-back guarantee.

    Our Listening Kit

    To help you choose the right speakers, we recommend using Crutchfield’s SpeakerCompare Listening Kit. It includes a pair of studio-quality headphones, and a guide to getting the most out of your session, and a few other necessary items. We’ve carefully chosen the components of this kit to ensure a crystal-clear listening experience. It’s available for a nominal rental fee, and includes a $25 Crutchfield merchandise credit.
