The IPR-6000 rated at 3,000W RMS x 2 at 2 ohms =750 watts per 8 ohm speaker. Unless someone is compressing the crap out of music to get more than 1/3 of the 750 watt max output as average power, 250 watts per speaker, I wouldn't worry too much about using that amp with the 15 or 18 inch Yamaha Club series speakers. The 10 and 12 inch could be burned depending on the program.
I'm not sure if he has four tops and four subs to load it down that far. If only a pair of each it'll pump 1kw into each cab - I think that askin' for it myself Laughing.

I’ll be interested in your review of the IPR-4500 if it arrives, and a comparison between it and whatever you currently use.
Unfortunately I'm probably not gonna be able to really use it until the summer. I'll run my pair of Peavey Impulse 1012's on one side and a couple 4 ohm folded horn subs on the other - it will supply them all with 1.5x their rms ratings which is probably a bit tame for yous guys Laughing but I like my stuff to last a while Wink. I even have a couple crap low power amps around I could power the compression drivers with if I get ambitious and want to biamp the tops Smile - but even those are about 2x the weight of an IPR-1600.

I run sm115v for tops and the Sw2118 for a sub.  I run mono so each of the tops would see 1000w each and the sub 2k which is about the peak ratings according to yamaha. We'll have to wait and see.  These things have been quite delayed in coming to market, one wonders what is up.  Cheap light weight power or junk.

Yah, that'll get them cookin' real good Laughing. Personally I'd use the 3000 on them and still feel I was pushin' things a bit.

It probably is a little much but I normally "over amp" a little. I figure as long as I don't get too excited and try to max out the system, the amps don't work as hard and live a little longer.

Made.                      In.                     China.





Does this not bother anyone else besides me these days?    


It's hard to find anything these days that isn't either made in China or is assembled using parts from China.

It's still a Peavey. Does that bother anyone else besides me?

Would you like it better if it said Crest on the front?

And no, it doesn't bother me. If it was a speaker, a mixer, or a microphone, sure. It's not.

I'm not sure how I feel about the way this is going to destroy the market in used amps.

Yah, I tried to sell off all my amps except one 'ringer EP2500 for subs (until I get my IPR) and my monitor amps and already I'd have to give them away free and pay for the shipping to boot Shocked! If these IPR's work as well as initial reports they are gonna dominate the semi-pro market. Already Crown XTI's are being blown out and Crown announced class-d replacements for all but the XTI-6000 which is already that.

The IPR-6000 rated at 3,000W RMS x 2 at 2 ohms =750 watts per 8 ohm speaker.


Art,

Do you know the 8 ohm rating as a fact? I was turned on to the IPR 1600 just yesterday, and I thought my buddy at the music store was playing a joke on me when he handed it to me. I said "get the f*** outta here" thinking it was some sorta filler for a display rack or something it was that light. I came home got on the Peavey site to get info, not much there in regards to specs on the various amp models in the IPR line but what you posted from the manual.

I went to the Peavey forum and a poster had this up:

index.php/fa/27356/0/

I don't understand why Peavey isn't giving the specs for 8 ohm ratings.


Here's some prices from MF for the IPR 1600's:

Hmm, normally when a product has been out awhile the price drops a little over time, can the 1600 go down any lower you think?

Personally I don't care if it's a Peavey, a few years ago I went the route of an FX mixer against what was discussed here on small format mixers just b/c of a gut feeling on the price and what the FX had to offer in its price point. I was very happy with my decision (for myself). If these IPR amps make it through a time regiment with success, I too believe these amps will have a good amount of the market where they fit the bill so to say.

Hmm, SKB racks and IPR amps, now you'll need weights just keep them from blowing around during outdoor gigs  Laughing

I guesstimate the 6000 puts out ~1150 watts per channel @ 8 ohms based upon the ratio between the 1600's 8 and 4 ohm rating. Yah, pretty brain dead of Peavey not to publish the 8 ohm ratings - they musta been taken over by !@#$%^& MBA's Mad.

I  couldn’t find an 8 ohm rating for the IPR-6000, the figure of 750 watts was simply 3000/4, I had thought Doug Sprinthall was running four 8 ohm speakers per side for a 2 ohm load.

I don’t know why Peavey does not seem to spec the larger amps at 8 ohm, maybe they figure no one would buy that much power and just put one speaker per side.
If the IPR-6000 has the same power ratio as the IPR-1600, it would probably be about 1125 watts per side into a single 8 ohm load.
