Meridian, MS (May 3, 2012)-Peavey has debuted its IPR 1600 and IPR 3000 DSP power amplifiers.
IPR DSP Series amps are aimed for use with both front-of-house and monitors, bringing loudspeaker management to amplifiers said to be on part with the original Peavey IPR power amps. The onboard digital signal-processing system includes preset banks for loudspeaker types and configurations, as well as Waves MaxxBass psychoacoustic processing.
The IPR DSP uses a setup wizard to set EQ curves, delay speakers, crossover (full-range or full-range with sub), high pass and low pass; adjust a four-band parametric EQ and horn EQ; and specify the amount of Waves MaxxBass processing from 0-100 percent.
IPR DSP users can choose from a bank of Peavey and generic loudspeaker types, including models from the Peavey QW, SP, EU, Impulse, PR and SSE Sanctuary Series, as well as standard 10-, 12- and 15-inch loudspeakers. Program EQ curves include rock, pop, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary worship, speech and acoustic. A built-in security lock is selectable for all functions, or all but volume.
Peavey IPR Series power amplifiers feature two channels and a variable-speed fan housed in a lightweight aluminum chassis. Inputs are combination quarter-inch and XLR, while outputs are combination quarter-inch and twist-lock connectors. 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. Peavey IPR 3000 and IPR 1600 power amplifiers are backed by Peavey's five-year extended warranty.
