    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...

    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.

    What is that and who currently uses them in their amps?

    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.

    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. :)

  13. 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.

    Ditto! I bet this would rock my LDS 215 nicely! :bassist:

    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.
