Good value, powerful and versatile amp
After about a year using this amp in several capacities, I am happy to give the Peavey IPR 3000 good grades. Initially I bought it as a subwoofer amplifier. The built in 100 Hz crossover makes this function fast and easy...a complete high wattage bass system you can carry with your little finger. Then I tried it to run main speakers. Wow, it delivered clean sound with lots of headroom in that role as well. The in / out jacks are the dual type so it doesn't matter if you prefer XLR, or 1/4" or speakon, ..it's got 'em all. Being only about 10 inches deep, it can fit into many shallow and lightweight effects racks. I think it is a well thought out product all the way around. The fact that it weighs only 7 pounds means, however, that it is thinner and more delicate than it's built like a tank 50 pound predecessors. The rack ears will bend if subjected to heavy-handedness. Finally, the running lights are way more than what is needed for a power amp, but that's just Peavey's way of saying "Hey look at me, I'm a cool new product." In conclusion, this unit is one of the best purchases I have made. The technology that we dreamed about years ago is now on the gig.
