ICEpower products are powering a large part of the music industry.

From the bass guitarist’s amplifier to the sound reinforcement speakers used in clubs and small venues to the massive line array speakers used at large live concerts, to the studio monitors in the recording studio, ICEpower technologies are used.
We have many solutions which helps audio manufacturers create fantastic sounding products.

Studio monitors, PA speakers and line arrays

There are many advantages of self-powered speakers. The ability to tailor the amplifier, the crossover filter and advanced DSP to each individual driver enables more compact designs with better sound quality.

In professional audio reliability is key. The show must go on, no matter what. Our high power amplifiers are designed around what we call the “Music at all times” paradigm. What this means is that we have built-in extensive protection and monitoring features, which keeps the music playing even during high stress and overload situations.

Musical instrument amplifiers

Bass players have a lot to thank ICEpower for. Their amps used to be big, heavy, unreliable and not very energy efficient as they were built on tube amplifiers and heavy linear power supplies. From the mid ‘00s new, lightweight bass amps with more power and increased reliability was offered by several leading bass amp manufacturers. Many of these new products are based on ICEpower solutions. These new bass amps enabled bass players to carry much less equipment when touring and playing gigs. Great for bassists, bad for chiropractors.

Guitar amplifiers are now starting on the same journey towards modern, energy efficient class D technology. An increasing number of guitar amplifiers are incorporating DSP based modelling techniques and hybrid designs, using traditional tubes for the pre-amp. Thus essentially creating “the sound” in the pre-amp section and using a neutral sounding and efficient class D power section.

Rack amplifiers

Rack amplifiers require lots of power in a compact space with great sound quality which perform reliably. For customers developing rack amplifiers, we can offer both IC based solutions in the form of reference designs, complete audio power modules and for customers who do not have the time or ressources, we can also develop and manufacture complete rack amplifiers on a turnkey or joint development basis.
