    So who is gonna be the first guinea pig to try this bad boy?:D

    Also showing in stock at American Musical. I could get one on a monthly payment plan which would give me time to try one out. I've waited two years for this amp to be released and I really want to hear one.

    However it looks like it is only about 250 watts stronger @ 8 ohms than my Inuke 6000. Even if it is a better performer. I just don't know know if I can justify paying double the price for a few hundred additional watts of power. Especially with the Inuke 12000 due to be released any month now at the same price point.

      I've seen Musiciansfriend, AmericanMusical, and Sweetwater go from showing these amps in stock to stating they will be back in stock soon. Looks like the pre-orders wiped out the first round of stock for these babies.

      And it appears the name was slightly changed to IPR2-7500 now.

        Dude, I've been piecing that up for the last few days. I'm very tempted to pick one (or two) up to try out. I actually sold my clone amp recently in lieu of a longer term solution so I'm in the market. As of now it's looking like two of these or two CV5000s.

          Yeah I saw your post last night on AVS. I can't believe you sold your clone amp since their is power is so highly regarded in the AVS community. However I can understand you where you are coming from. Reliability is always a number one priority with amp purchases for me, next comes power.

          I don't want to live in fear of my amp failing everything I start it up at night. I am wondering how the IPR 2-7500 stacks up to it's old iron brethren at the same price point. I also wonder how it stacks up to the equivalent of two inuke 6000's at the same price point.

          I want this amp BAD but I need to know how the INUKE 12000 performs first. One of these amps is going to be a game changer in my opinion.

            I think it's going to come down to what impedance you need. The inuke12 will likely be a beast and one of the best in 4 ohm mode. I don't believe the peaveys can be bridged so you will need to run them in 2ohms to extract solid power.

            It would be awesome to see the Inuke come to market soon! I actually have two of the cv5ks on order but they can be returned or swapped in the event I was to try the class D options. It's just so hard to argue with an 83lb big iron powerhouse!

              DD, just saw your PM from awhile back and I sent a long winded reply. I do make it over here from time to time just to see what's going on with your amp search.

              Andrew, I like my CV 5000 but it cries uncle long before my SI's do - but I've realized that's a good thing. I think if I was "driver" limited I'd end up with destroyed drivers. :D

              It is built like a tank for sure, one time I was messing with my receiver and bumped my leg on it and I got a nice bruise and I don't bruise easily.

                Carp - I'm thinking a pair of the CVs should bring the 8x18s to their limits mechanically and close to thermally. I've run my xls5000 bridged to 4 of my subs and it sounds great.

                  Also DD - any word from Behringer on the Inuke12000 release date? I couldn't find any updates out there just yet.

                    Not yet. I sent them another message on Facebook a few days ago. I have asked when the Inuke 12000 will be released for the second time at http://soundforums.net/varsity/4299-...roup-q-25.html. Uli Behringer normally responds to questions at least once per week in the Behringer thread there.

                      DD - First one has arrived! I powered it up just to check it, but no playtime yet. Stay tuned.

                      BTW it came with a CD manual which shed some light on some "burst" rating specs, similar to the way the Clone amps are rated. In 2 ohm stereo the rating is 4750 watts per channel @ 1KHZ for 20ms, repetitive. Continuous rating is 3750/ch @ 1KHZ or 3280 full range, 20hz-20khz both channels driven. If they come close these things are going to be monsters. I might have to be careful with two of these beasts powering my Daytons. Applying a low HPF might be a good idea. :D

                      A few other notes:
                      -It specifically states in the manual the amp is not bridgeable for these models
                      -It also states the amp will run full 2 ohm power into a sine wave, which would be limited by your circuit breaker as to how long it will pull full power :D
                      -Damn, the power cord is short! It's also a NEMA 5-20 plug so be sure you have the proper outlet available.
                      -The LEDs are lit even when the amp is on standby

                        Don't tease me bro!!! Lol. Please let me know you first impressions once you hook it up to your subs OR speakers! This amp is in my price range and it would be a instant hit if it's specs are legit. I am growing tired of waiting for the Inuke 12000 at this point.

                          Haha, with any luck I'll have some listening impressions tonight. I had about 10 minutes last night before our class (newborn on the way) so I got the Crown unhooked and the Peavey hooked up. I ran a quick test tone through it just to check connections, etc. Should be ready to calibrate and/or take some omnimic sweeps. :) Second amp should be here shortly as well.

                            Playtime!

                            Copied from AVS -

                            Update: Got two of these amps in my posession now. I had the chance to hook one of them up last night to 2 of my subs, 4 drivers, in 2 ohm stereo. I run my subs 6-db hot, with Audyssey, and a +3DB LT. Sonically it sounded great - very similar to my Crown XLS5000 which I had just unhooked. Power wise - let me say that one of these amps in 2 ohm mode is too much power for 4 of the Dayton 18s. At about -5 or so with the volume with the Underworld Uzi scene playing the subs easily bottomed. eek.gif Since then I've been very respectful of the capability of this amp. smile.gif I continued playing with 10hz sine waves which had more force than I ever remembered hearing (actually more like feeling) before. Have not seen the clip lights nor will I be able to push it that far in this configuration.

                            In short - this amp seems to deliver raw, brute, clean power in a stupid light package. One or of these amps and 8 x 8ohm (D4 SIs or so) would seem to be an ideal match. Alternatively in a best case scenario you could run two of these amps, each with 4 8 ohm configured subs for a 4 ohm load per channel. The 18.2's come to mind! I'm going to later try the amp running 4 ohm stereo with all 8 subs running. It's full bandwidth rating is 'only' 2000rms/ch (0.1 THD) or 2450rms/ch (1%THD) but something tells me it will still be more than sufficient.

                            Fan noise - Expect them to be noisy, although may be slightly less than an unmodded EP4000, etc. I haven't measured SPL of the fans as it isn't a huge concern to me since they are rack mounted in a remote location.

                            More testing coming this weekend - stay tuned. :cool:

                              Interesting grasshopper! So does this amp seem more powerful than the CV-5000? I wonder what it can do with a 4ohm setting. I'm just worried if it's not powerful enough to drive the FTW-21 twins. The next two subs I'm getting will be a set of 18.2's , 4 daytons, or two 24" SI subs(if they ever come to exist). I need a good match for one of the aforementioned subs as well.
