Peavey ElectronicsÂ® proudly announces the immediate availability of the revolutionary Peavey IPRâ„¢ 3000 power amplifier. The IPR 3000 utilizes an advanced technology that increases output power, reliability and thermal efficiency while yielding the highest audio resolution possible with dramatically light weight.
Designed with a new advanced switch-mode power supply and a high-speed class D topology, the Peavey IPR 3000 power amplifier provides 1,490 watts RMS per channel @ 2 ohms (840 watts RMS x2 @ 4 ohms) with a weight of just 7.9 lbs. The highly anticipated release of the Peavey IPR 3000 follows the IPR 1600, the award-winning power amplifier that earned rave reviews from pro audio media and turned the industry on its ear.
Peavey IPR Series power amplifiers feature two channels with independent, fourth-order Linkwitz-Riley 100 Hz crossoversâ€”with preset selections for Hi Pass, Full Range and Subwooferâ€”and a variable-speed fan housed in a lightweight aluminum chassis. Inputs are combination Â¼â€? and XLR, while outputs are combination Â¼â€? and twist-lock connectors.
Peaveyâ€™s exclusive DDTâ„¢ speaker protection with multi-point clip sampling leads a protection-circuitry suite that also includes DC, Temp, Signal and Active safeguards, all referenced on the front panel with LED indicators. Peavey IPR 3000 and IPR 1600 power amplifiers are covered by Peaveyâ€™s five-year warranty.
Regarding the Peavey IPR 1600, Front of House reviewer Jamie Rio wrote, “[When] a good amplifier is doing its job, you ideally don’t notice it. That would be a simple definition of transparency. The Peavey IPR 1600 disappeared into the background as the music filled the foreground. As it should.”
Rio added, “During the sound check, I pushed the [Peavey IPR 1600] in an attempt to create some sort of distortion or audio anomaly, but was unsuccessfulâ€”which was a good thing.”
Pro Audio Review writer Brian Smith commented, “Despite its lean physicality, the IPR 1600 is no lightweight when it comes to providing power for live sound applications where extra weight and cost are undesirable. Performing as advertised in all instances, the amp delivered clean, good sounding audio with ample headroom â€¦ even when pushed hard.”
The Peavey IPR 1600 power amplifier won the Best New Power Amp Award from music-products retailers in the 24th annual Music & Sound Awards, presented by the Music & Sound Retailer.
