There are plenty of car audio brands out there to choose from, but there is, really, only one brand that stands for maximum performance, maximum sound quality, and maximum quality. That brand is Crescendo Audio. Crescendo Audio’s lineup consists of big subwoofers, some powerful amplifiers, and everything in between. In this post, we will take a look at the brand new addition to the Crescendo Audio amplifier line, the Skyway 3K. In the race to fill the gap between big, powerful amplifiers and those looking for an amplifier with a smaller footprint, Crescendo has answered with the Skyway 3K.
The Need, The Answer
You may say they are late to the game, but Crescendo Audio has sat back, monitored, and studied the other brands putting out these high-powered, full-bridge amplifiers and taking notes. They have been studying the issues with these other full-bridge amplifiers and decided to fix the issues and take this market by storm. If you look at some of the other amplifiers in this class, you’ll find a lot of corner-cutting on internal components leading to a true lack of build quality and overall performance.
Staying true to their commitment of build the best, and vowing to reinvent the full-bridge amplifier, Crescendo Audio answers the car audio world’s hunger for small, but super powerful amplifiers, with the Skyway 3K. Through tons of research, development, and prototypes, Crescendo has really stepped up and filled the gap that was there, with this new amplifier.
Intrigued? Let’s take a look at what makes this amplifier special because that’s what it’s all about, right?
The Skyway 3K
As a car audio addict, you should know that the Crescendo Audio Symphony series amplifiers are killer, so why not house the new Skyway 3K inside the same heatsink as that popular line? The Symphony Series heat sink was already designed for maximum heat dissipation, making it the perfect resting place for the high-quality internals, heavy-duty copper traces, and Korean-built PCB of the full-bridge Skyway.
You might be thinking the Skyway 3K is only for powering those Crescendo Audio subwoofers, but you are wrong. The Skyway 3K is a pure full-range amplifier, designed to provide the power needed for any type of driver you need to make loud. Whether you have some subwoofers, mid-range, or even tweeters, the Skyway 3K will make them sing.
