Overview

Part of Peavey's IPR Series, the IPR 3000 Power Amp uses an advanced design that allowed Peavey engineers to dramatically reduce weight while increasing output power, reliability, and thermal efficiency. The rackmount power amp has a resonant switch-mode power supply and a high-speed class D topology that yields supremely high audio resolution and productivity.

The Peavey IPR 3000 features 2 channels with independent, 100Hz crossovers and produces 440W per channel at 8Î, or 1,490W per channel at 2Î. Peavey's exclusive DDT speaker protection with multipoint clip sampling leads a protection-circuitry suite that also includes DC, Temp, Signal, and Active safeguards, all referenced on the front panel with LED indicators. The power amp also features a variable-speed fan housed in a lightweight aluminum chassis.

When I first held this amp I thought wow is there anything even inside? Then I went to hook up my 2 15" Earthquake subs and was blown away that they played so loud for such a light amp. It runs the my subs very clean and this thing has never heat up at all not even gotten warm after playing music for hours. Compare to my 65 pound PV 2000 this thing is very light to me and has a bit more power to spare. For $400 (now $450) this thing seem like a great deal and be able to save on time now that I don't carry my as much weight around. One thing though is a week after using it, the amp just went out. The breaker and fuse were fine but it just went out. Luckily GC great service exchange it for me in no time and now has not had problems with the second one. So it was probably a lemon, and it does have 5 year warranty from Peavey just in case anything every happens, which won't.

Disapointed as unit had problems right outa the box. Amp makes low level whiny noise outa both channels no matter what I do. Sounds like air squeaking outa a leaky balloon! Too bad as it could be a great product - light, powerful, and inexpensive. I knew I shoulda waited another year for the design to settle in.

Ive had this amp for a year now at my church. It still runs great! Ive had zero issues with these amps. They are Very light weight and easy to carry. I was at first skeptical where being lightweight that they would not have the power like the big and heavy transformer models. Now i'm a believer!

Satisfied Peavey owner

By Edwin Knott

from San Jose, CA

I wrote a review about the Peavey IPR 3000 on my blog at: http://www.empowernetwork.com/edventurus/blog/peavey-ipr-3000-power-amps/ The complete review is at the blog above. Let me say this. I am very impressed with the Peavey IPR 3000 and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I have to move my equipment often and the weight factor is what is most impressive. This amp weighs about 10 times lighter than comparable amps, and the performance is every bit a good.

So far so good

By Gonzalo Plascencia

from El Paso, TX

It sounds good, looks nice, very light weight and simple to use. So far so good I hope it stays that way.
I wanted a light weight amp with a lot of power to run my karaoke shows. I thought i should save some money and try this peavey amp. The first amp I received had a bad channel, I had to return it. I was having second thoughts about getting another one. The second one I recieved seem to work without any problems. I have used the amp for a couple of weeks now and so far it's working out great. It has a lot of power and the sound if great. I'm just crossing my fingers that it continues to perform as well as it has.
Amp looks like it's not very powerful, It looks very basic, and light weight, it almost feels like an inexpenisve amp, But the power and sound you get from the amp is really good.
The price is good for all the power you get from this amp.

One outstanding amp!

By Michael Appleby

from Louisville, KY

My hat is off to the Peavey engineers with the IPR 3000. The audio amplification is crystal clear and the weight is incredible. I drive a set of 600 watt 4 ohm cabs with this amp for five hrs at a time in a live sound application nearly every Fri and Sat with no overheating problems. The extremely bright LED indicators on the front are easy to see in a smokey bar and the DDT circuitry warns you when you are pushing your cabinets a little too hard. Using this amp in combination with my PreSonus ACP 88 compression, I get a clean; distortion free sound from my cabinets. The weight of this amp is only 7.5 lbs which can be deceiving if you are used to something like a QSC 2450 or the like. Other amps that produce this much power weigh 20+ lbs and when you have a whole rack of them, you can get a hernia moving them around every weekend. A rack of 3 Peavey IPR 3000 amps weighs the same as 1 old-technology amp. For those that are reading this review and others that may not be so good, I would remind you that like most things...these amps are assembled by humans...and anything man-made is prone to failure. If you get a bad one...take it back and get a new one!
It's man-made, so it can fail, but the initial quality out of the box seems good.
Great price for what you get. Similar amps with the same output power rating are a few hundred buck more.

First one was dead. The replacement works so far. Packaging not good.

By Ronnie Hand

from Mississippi

When I got my first IPR3000 it wouldn't work right out of the box and had to return it. Wouldn't even come on at all. Packaging not great as to why a 7
When I got my first IPR3000 it wouldn't work right out of the box and had to return it. Wouldn't even come on at all. I started to get a Crown in it place but cost a little more, so I reordered another IPR3000. When I got it I wasn't impressed with the packaging. The tape appeared cut down the lid of the box and wondered if it was a returned amp. Also a hole was torn in the plastic sack the amp was in made me wonder some. Peavey should pack them better no doubt! I crossed my fingers and put it in the rack and powered it up. It came on, thank God! So, far I haven't used it alot yet but sounds quite and works good so far.
Give it a 7 because of the first one being defective and the packaging.
Seems to be built good. Very light in weight. Got a good price with coupon deal.

IPS 3000 Power Amp - Love it

By John Petingalo

from Canada

As i stated earlier, the power amp is amazing, I really like the visual it has when it is off and turned on, just adds an awesome feature to it, the actual features of the power-amp now. It has plenty of power for me to go up in speaker size, It has everything I require to play, the Specification Sheet that came with it is really useful for knowing what it has and what it doesn't have, which is already listed somewhere on this product on the site. I really can not wait to use this thing at one of the bigger venues in my area, then I will be amazed at its abilities.
I love this product, I really love how it has that blue glow to it from the inside light, it just adds a nice touch to it. As far as the features of the power amp it self, I have nothing to complain about, it has amazing features on it, such that I can't break it if I accidently do something wrong (Cooling System, Distortion, Thermal, Incorrect Loads).
Amazing, not much more to be said, it looks great, sounds great, is great, I have once again no complaints.
The same as above, it is really worth it, I have speakers I can use at all different sizes depending on the venue, making it very flexible to go to smaller places, with just one power-amp and and size speaker that I require.

Amazing Amp

By likesgoodsound

I received a replacement for the first one that was bad and I'm glad I gave it another try. Very nice amp. Clean, powerful, and super light weight. A very good value solution to power your PA.

Not ready for prime time?

By likesgoodsound

from Mi

Disapointed as unit had problems right outa the box. Amp makes low level whiny noise outa both channels no matter what I do. Sounds like air squeaking outa a leaky balloon! Too bad as it could be a great product - light, powerful, and inexpensive. I knew I shoulda waited another year for the design to settle in.
