Meridian, MS (March 13, 2009)–Peavey Electronics has introduced its IPR Series of ultra-lightweight power amplifiers.
Boasting a net weight under 7 lbs. on its lightest model, the IPR Series utilizes an advanced design that has reportedly allowed Peavey engineers to reduce weight while increasing output power, reliability and thermal efficiency. IPR Series amplifiers are designed with a switch-mode power supply and a Class-D topology.
The IPR Series amplifiers feature two channels with independent, 100 Hz crossovers and a variable-speed fan housed in a lightweight aluminum chassis. Peavey’s DDT 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.
In addition to the standard IPR 1600, IPR 3000, IPR 4400 and IPR 6000 models, Peavey has unveiled four models that feature built-in, 32-bit, floating-point digital signal processing. The IPR DSP models ship with program-specific EQ presets that reportedly make common sound-reinforcement EQ treatments easy to perform, as well as delays, crossover and stereo/mono operation with lockable security settings. A front-panel LCD screen allows users to quickly identify and assign presets.
