Peavey proudly announces the availability of the revolutionary IPR 1600 DSP power amplifier. Loaded with an exclusive digital signal processing suite, IPR DSP Series amps are innovative, high-powered live production tools for both front-of-house and monitors.
The IPR 1600 DSP power amplifier combines user-friendly loudspeaker management with the award-winning, lightweight power and performance of the original Peavey IPR power amplifiers. The onboard digital signal processing system includes preset banks for popular loudspeaker types and configurations, as well as Waves MaxxBass psycho-acoustic processing for the first time in any power amplifier.
The IPR DSP takes users through an intuitive setup wizard to set their 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%. MaxxBass uses psycho-acoustics to calculate precise harmonics that are related to the fundamental tones of sound. When these harmonics are combined, it creates the effect of deeper low frequencies.
IPR DSP users can choose from a bank of popular 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.
The IPR 1600 DSP is rated at 900 watts RMS per channel @ 2 ohms (5115 watts RMS x2 @ 4 ohms) at 7.25 lbs.
Peavey IPR Series power amplifiers feature two channels and a variable-speed fan housed in a lightweight aluminum chassis. Inputs are combination " and XLR, while outputs are combination " and twist-lock connectors. Peavey's exclusive 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 1600 power amplifiers are backed by Peavey's free five-year extended warranty.
