Peavey IPR 1600 DSP30 May 2012
What is it? A power amplifier incorporating a digital signal processing suite for both front-of-house and monitoring applications. Details The IPR 1600 DSP is said to combine user-friendly loudspeaker management with the 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 amplifier 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%. Users can select 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” 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 900W RMS per channel into 2 ohms (5115 watts RMS x2 @ 4 ohms) at 7.25 lbs. Peavey IPR Series power amplifiers incorporate variable-speed fans and are housed in a lightweight aluminium chassis. And another thing… The IPR 1600 DSP features Peavey’s proprietary DDT speaker protection system with multi-point clip sampling plus DC, temperature, signal and active safeguards, all with front-panel LED indicators.
