  • Peavey IPR 7500 / DSP

    Any thoughts up the 2012 upcoming IPR amps?

    http://peavey.com/products/proaudio/poweramps/ipr/

    If the 5000/7500 series are even close to legit, it would set forth a remarkable value for those of us with passive subs. :)

    I imagine the 6lb unpacked weight for the 7500 is a typo considering the 1600 is 9lbs.

    That 7500 has the potential to be a great amp to go with an 8 pack of the SS-18.1's.

    This definitely has potential - and if one has the right receiver/processor, the DSP won't be needed.

      I dunno, those things weigh as low as 7 pounds...........????

      I know weight in an amp isn't everything, or really all that much, but when the weight is that low, that's pretty damn low for an external amp, right?

      Hell, as long as it performs though who cares. :)

        I'm as skeptical as the rest, especially considering the IPR 6000 which was never released. A few sites are stating this 'should' begin shipping around January 11th - it that's true it will be hard to resist ordering one to try out.:applause:

          Boober - Understood on the weight. On the other hand, the Speakerpower 4000 watt amp weighs 8.7 pounds and is rated at 4000 watts into 2 ohms.

          I know the IPR-3000 has done a terrific job for a lot of guys, too.

            I'm interested. Does anyone have any good links to look up info on the IPR DSP?

            The Behringer Inuke DSP software you could download and play with on your computer with/out the amp. I'd like to do the same with the IPR Software to see how it compares, but when I've looked I've been unable to source any software. If the parametric EQ really has to be configured only on the unit itself using that dopey little LCD screen like the manual shows on page 28 - well I'll just lose most of my interest. The Inuke DSP software and interface is eons more easy and user friendly!

              It looks like they have the manual available for download on the peavey site - here is some info:

                I am not sure any of these new lightweight amps are putting out anywhere near the power they claim. I am still very skeptical and will stick to old tech A/B tank amps until one of thes flyweight amps proves it can push large speakers and large subs with high power.
                I came, I saw, I purchased.

                  I still hold the same perspective but the ISP3000 tested pretty well. If/when these larger models come out, I'd be open to buying one to try out and compare to my Big Iron Crown.
