Not such a good idea when all you have to do is build a 20 amp extension cord OR get an adaptor

Option 1 -

Option two

http://www.homedepot.com/p/Pass-Seymour-20-Amp-125-Volt-Connector-PS5369XCCV4/100162451

I couldn't find it online but they have cut to length 12 gauge/3 strand extension cord wire. Make your own custom length cord.

Thanks,

The goal is not to use extension cord but to find a power cord replacement that will work and be 6-7 foot long.

I'm very comfortable and experienced with building cables..........but I'm looking for a replacement cable that will go from amp to wall plug. I may have to build my own cord, but I don't want to and will try to avoid at all cost.

One would think something is out there.........

Do a google search for Nema 5-20P to C19 cords and you will find quite a few of them. They are for sure more rare than standard cords but not too tough to find if you search for that.

Damn.....the Middle Atlantic AXS-R is a great rack but have to pull rack out 42 inches on guides to get access!

Where in the world do I get matching power cord 7 ft long to fit the thing? Have a call into local Guitar Center but they haven't called back!
The reason for the short power cable is that these amps are designed for professional usage and mounted in amplifier racks that have a power distro in them.

Longer cables get to be a problem to deal with in those cases.

It depends on how you describe "very limited"

There are high and low pass filters with selectable rolloffs and I think a couple of filter types) There are limits on how much range (high and low) that they have.

I don't have one in front of me right now to look at.

There are 5 bands of eq per channel-however the resolution is not as fine as others-they only go as narrow as 1/3 octave-but that is good enough for most cases.

The delays have both ms and us adjustments.

The limiters are only in 1dB steps-but that is usually good enough for most people.

There are only 4 memory presets-do you need more?

So yes they are "limited", but good enough for most people applications.

Well that gave me some relief!

 

I have an AXS-R rack and moving rack in and out of cabinet requires a long cord.  Due to moving rack in and out to service, it makes sense to have locking receptacle so I don't pull plug.  Thinking this may be the ticket.

For my rack.............

Makes perfect sense............I have dedicated homerun circuits for these amps..........feeling better now that I can purchase the chord without having splices and such. One solid cord was my goal!

Hey guys, is this amp noisy? Does it have fans for colling down or heat sinks?

Yes, has cooling fans....

As for noise, I will NOT be using a fan mod since amps will be outside of room. Fans are nowhere near as loud as iNukes......noise is relative........

pdxrealator may have an extra or two - he is selling them in his sig for about the same price as the group buy.

pdxrealator - do you have any 7500 DSP models left to sell or would that require another group buy?

No DSP models. The DSP in the IPRs is not that great, and from I can remember is not the same as the Crest.

If you want DSP in an amp get the inukes.

I can get any peavey or crest product with a minimum order of six. Once six are spoken for the final number could be 7 or 700.

EDIT to add -- it's all about the shipping to my supplier. Once six are ordered to him the shipping is waived which allows for the lower cost.

BLAH was pushing the Crests pretty hard for a while. If he can get those he should be able to get the IPRs also. Something to keep in mind.

Another thing to keep in mind is, as I just posted in another thread, 99% of the setups here will be served great by the IPRs- no need to spend the extra coin on the Pro lites.
