    Looks like a new amp is going to be released by Carvin.

    Not a bad marketing move. I like it. Need more tech info.

    I've got a feeling it will be listed on their web site after NAMM.

    So I take it that it has the same front end as the B2000, but with 1000 watts ?

    I need them blue LEDs for increased stage presence. Marketing bozos.

    Yes of course only guitar players should have fancy looking amps...
    :rollno:

    Looks like another winner for Carvin. If it falls between the B2000 and the BX500 in price, I imagine it will cost around 500 bucks.

    Looks good. I wonder what their preset frequencies are, same as the B2000? I just got a BX1500, so it looks like the B1000 isn't in my future.

    I think he's referring to ICEPower modules. They are pre-fabricated modules for class D power supply and amplification that can be integrated into various products.
    http://www.icepower.bang-olufsen.com/en/solutions/speaker/

    Several big-name manufacturers have used these modules in their amps. E.g., I'd suspect that TC Electronic probably uses them for some amps, given that they are a fellow Danish brand. But I have no evidence to support that claim. :)

    Edit: after doing some research, it seems that TC Group actually has acquired its own IP for SMPS and class D amplifier designs, so they probably don't use ICEPower modules at all. That's what I get for supposing. :)

    Thanks for posting that. I was literally getting ready to buy an amp head tomorrow. Now I'm gonna wait. A Carvin head that will fit in a gig bag is what I've really wanted.

    This looks really nice. If it's 1K @4ohms and about 6-700 @8ohms it would be an awesome little amp for my 12/6. Hopefully it's not 1K @2ohms.

    Right now I've been using a SVP-Pro/Carvin HD1500......:bassist:

    I've also used a PF-500, and GK 700RB-II. I may not use all the watts, but I like some headroom...And this little cab can take it.

    Looks like it's 375w @ 8 ohms, 600w @ 4 ohms and 900w @ 2 ohms.

    The B2000 is 700w @ 8 ohms for 700 bucks.
