The lite Xcursion Series is the ideal marriage of Yorkville Sound's loudspeaker design experience, electronics innovation and power amplifier engineering. We have taken our 40 plus years as an industry innovator and pushed the boundaries yet again to create the ultimate "all-in-one" complete and convenient PA system solution for live sound or mobile DJ applications.

The simple concept behind the lite Xcursion2000 was to create a powerful effective and mobile active stereo club system PA centered around one 18-inch subwoofer and two 12-inch / 1-inch satellite loudspeakers. The core of the lite Xcursion2000 is the single 1200-watt (1900 watts burst) active subwoofer loaded with the same powerful 18-inch driver used in the popular lite LS1208 subwoofer, the flagship of the lite passive subwoofer line. Powering all 3 cabinets is a breeze with all three separate power amplifiers being incorporated into the electronics of the active subwoofer.

A complete, self contained and powered system with passive and active crossover networks, equalization, and separate stereo and subwoofer level control all built in, making the lite Xcursion Series the ultimate in compact live/DJ systems. A complete PA system that truly is "Plug and Play".

All of the lite Xcursion Series products are built to Yorkville's exacting standards and include our famous two year (even if you break it!) transferable warranty.• The latest in amplifier technology is incorporated in all Xcursion systems ensuring ultra quiet, highly efficient, high output, low distortion, and light weight from a combination of Class D and 3-tier Class A/B amplifier topologies.

Three separate power amplifiers are incorporated into the electronics of the Xcursion2000 active subwoofer. Yorkville's proven high-output, low-distortion class-D technology is used for the 1200-Watt Subwoofer amplifier. The mid / high enclosures in the lite Xcursion2000 are driven by a stereo 450-Watt, three-tier Class A/B power amplifier. This design was chosen to deliver ample power with extremely low distortion. An integrated, dual-function electronic crossover network ensures acoustically perfect transition between the subwoofer and the mid / high satellite speakers while its opto-limiter circuitry provides an unobtrusive and 'musical sounding' compression that not only protects the speaker components, but also ensures balanced and clear reproduction from the satellite cabinets.

Xcursion2000 Ready to Roll The entire system can be connected to any mono or stereo mixer source through either XLR or -inch TRS balanced inputs. The satellite speakers are connected to the subwoofer with two 25-foot (8m) Speakon speaker cables that are included with the package. The system is powered by one AC line cord ensuring quick and convenient set-up and teardown, with a minimum of cabling and connectivity around the stage. To ensure trouble free movement from Point A to Point B, the Xcursion2000 comes shipped with a detachable swivel caster dolly and Velcro tie down strap for the satellite cabinets. Unlike competitive system solutions, the caster kit from the lite Xcursion2000 does not remain attached to the subwoofer when the system is in use, eliminating caster buzz and rattle during live performances. Nesting the satellite speakers on top of the subwoofer is a breeze thanks to the uniquely routed channel, sized and shaped specifically to match the contours of the Xcursion2000 satellite speakers. This ensures a snug, hassle free teardown at the end of a long night.

Great care was taken during the initial circuit design to ensure good common mode rejection (50 / 60-cycle hum rejection) at the input so this PA system is as free from extraneous noise as possible while in use. Separate gain controls for subwoofer and for the right and left satellite cabinets are easily accessible from the back panel. Warning lights show the user when the system is limiting or clipping at the input. True to Yorkville loudspeaker design, all of the cabinets in the lite Xcursion2000 are made with strong, durable plywood, not MDF or composites.

I was tired of experimenting with individual powered speakers and subs. I just couldnt get the sound i was looking for. Then i saw a used excursion 2000 for sale at a great price and took the plunge. I had known about the ex1 and ex2 since they came out ten or more years ago but never heard one. I was seduced by the idea of having a perfectly matched set of speakers and sub. The line input from my mixer goes in and two speakon cables come out. Plus only one power plug. A simple setup with dedicated circuitry (crossover and separate amps for each speaker and sub). It takes the guess work out of buying a pa system, which is exactly what i needed. I was unsure if the 250 watt speakers would keep up to the 900 watt sub but i love the overall sound that comes out of this ensemble. I play house, techno and hip hop, and it is clear on vocals, kicks and basslines. I was concerned the 18" woofer would produce sloppy kicks and beays but the mid punch from the sub and speakera combined is delicious. And the amount of bass this system puts out satisfies the bass monster in me. It is bass that is felt, not just heard. It doesnt seem to drop off or create dead spots in the room either. I know its silly to compare a 15" with an 18" sub, but i feel this ex2 sub spanks an ls720p. Even a pair of ls720p's! Yes, the sub that also houses the amps for the sub and speakers is large and heavy, but so is an ls800p. And so is any decent active 18" subwoofer. Use a hand dolly and its easy squeezy to move it around. I havent heard the excursion 1000 yet but now i am going to hunt one down and biy one. For the price you can get thdm for why not own both the ex1 AND ex2. Admittedly, the speakers are a tad flat for me, but i find that to be the case with all 12" speaker cabinets ive heard. Thats why i add a pair of yorkville colliseum c120p to the ex2. It brightens the sound up nice and makes it shiny. If you are like me and want simplicity, reliability, clarity and setious bass then find yourself an excursion 2000 (ex2) and get to work!
