Using Peavey IPR2 series for mains
I'm curious if anyone has used a Peavey IPR2 series amp to run their mains? I have an extra 7500 sitting doing nothing and I had the idea of having tons of power to run my mains. I first ran my iPod directly to the and and then a sony ES CD player directly to the amp. The CD player has a variable output so no need for a preamp. The CD player got way louder due to the fact that it puts out 2V. Neither got super loud though, as in over a 1000 watts of power loud. So I'm thinking I would need a preamp in there that can output several volts, like 5-8 volts.
Anyways I know there are those that think all amps sound the same, I am not one of those. With the very brief listening session I had the amp sounded thin and somewhat bright.
Anyone else try these amps and want to share their thoughts? Should they stick to powering subs?
