The CE Division of Waves and Peavey Electronics have announced a new collaborative project resulting in the launch of the Peavey IPR Series of power amplifiers, which incorporates Waves' MX5010 semiconductor in its design; IPR Series DSP power amplifiers are the first to integrate Waves technology. MX5010 features such proprietary Waves technologies as MaxxBass Bass Extension, MaxxTreble High Frequency Enhancement, 7-Band Paragraphic MaxxEQ, MaxxStereo, MaxxVolume, Level Control, and more. At a net weight of 7 lbs. on the lightest model, the Peavey IPR Series utilizes an advanced design that allows Peavey engineers to dramatically reduce weight while reportedly increasing reliability, thermal efficiency and output power (up to 6,000 watts at 2 ohms stable).
IPR Series amplifiers are designed with a resonant switch-mode power supply and a high-speed Class D topology that yields the highest audio resolution and efficiency available. Four DSP-equipped models feature 32-bit, floatingpoint digital signal processing with program-specific EQ presets that make common sound-reinforcement EQ treatments easy to perform.
