Lightweight and Efficient — with Time-saving DSP!Peavey astounds with the IPR DSP 1600 power amplifier, a part of the exciting IPR Series. Somehow, Peavey managed to make the IPR Series super-powerful in terms of wattage, but also incredibly lightweight — in fact, the lightest IPR Series weighs less than 7 lbs.! Maybe the most exciting fact about the 2-channel 1,600-watt IPR DSP 1600, though, is that it features handy built-in DSP effects. Via a front-panel LCD screen, you'll have recallable access to program-specific EQ presets, delays, and crossover settings - all right onboard the Peavey IPR DSP 1600.
Peavey IPR DSP 1600 Power Amplifier at a Glance:
Groundbreaking IPR Series: Lightweight, efficient, reliable
The IPR DSP 1600 is a member of Peavey's impressive IPR Series. Peavey went the extra mile designing this exciting line of power amplifiers. For starters, each IPR Series power amp boasts an extremely light weight — the lightest IPR weighs under 7 lbs.! Adding to that, though, Peavey managed to increase output power, reliability, and thermal efficiency, so the IPR DSP 1600 — and all the IPR Series power amps — are ready for the most professional of rigs. Each is designed with a resonant switch-mode power supply as well as a high-speed class D topology, yielding incredibly high audio resolution — and efficiency.
Built-in DSP lets you recall EQ, delay, and crossover settings
Apart from the appeal of being lightweight, the Peavey IPR DSP 1600 also sports high-quality built-in digital signal processing. You can use the 32-bit DSP to assign program-specific EQ presets, making it easy to handle common sound-reinforcement EQ treatments. Plus, you can adjust delays, crossover, and stereo/mono settings. The settings are accessed via a front-panel LCD screen. There are even security features, so you can lock your system settings during performances.
Peavey's DDT speaker-protection circuitry suite
On top of all-out innovation, the Peavey IPR DSP 1600 also offers Peavey's exclusive DDT speaker-protection system, with multi-pint clip sampling as well as DC, Temp, Signal, and Active safeguards — all of which are referenced on the front panel via LED indicators.

Clean and solid performer
by Xander fromI'm using the Peavey IPR DSP 1600 to drive a pair of DIY speakers with a nominal 4 ohm load. Input has been from a laptop (both headphone jack and Xenix USB mixer) and from an iPhone. These devices ... read more [+]have slightly lower output levels than the maximum input of the amp. This results in a max output of around 250-300 watts into each speaker when attenuation is set at 0 dB. These are measured values, so the amp is delivering on its rated sensitivity. This level is actually a great match for the speakers as the woofers hit their XMax at around 300 watts in the 10-30 Hz range.

Music Background: DIY Audio
With all EQ bypassed the response is essentially flat. The DSP functions provide enough parametric equalization to adjust response based on the room and speaker placement. It would be nice to be able to set the filters using a PC - the manual process takes time and on the road this may not be useful (keep the response flat and filter from the control board). In the home it is set and forget, so a very nice feature.
The fan on this amp is not audible during operation unless you are in a really dead room and aren't playing any sounds. I do hear the fan during shutdown as it spins up to exhaust any latent heat. I've yet to feel any warmth coming out of the amp, even after a couple of hours of heavy techno with the DDT light flickering once in a while.
No pops/thuds when turning it on/off.
My biggest complaint is that I cannot set a High Pass Filter at a low enough frequency. If I could set one in the high teens or low 20's, I could put another 30-50 watts into my speakers w/o exceeding the max excursion of the woofers. IIRC the lowest value for an HPF is in the 30's and that would take away too much of the lower bass.
In the minor complaint side, this unit could easily be a 1U instead of a 2U. There just isn't much inside. Also, the ears on the front are excessively large and could use a redesign. close [-]
