Unlike anything in its class, the ultra light XP1000L stereo 8 channel powered mixer offers 1200 watts RMS (1600W peak) power from 3 power amplifiers for left, right, and floor monitors. The XP1000L powered mixer is light weight, ultra portable and design with high performance air circulation cooling. It includes features such as more efficient 400W power amps providing greater tonal quality and reliability, and a front mounted 5V USB port for powering an optional LED light, MP-3 players or other USB device. The 3 Class D power amps are 95% efficient, conserving power, so they are more environmentally friendly, and allow the mixer to be powered using a small portable generator or standard AC power. High current Speakon™ combo 1/4-inch speaker connectors are featured assuring every watt gets to your speakers. Each amp has it own LED output meter plus peak indicator. 

SUPERB SOUND is derived from the extremely low distortion, "high headroom" design. State-of-the art, low noise, balanced XLR preamps from our Concert Series mixers provide common mode rejection better than 78 dB, which means that any noise that may come over your cables is virtually eliminated. Distortion is nearly non-existent with THD below 0.1% from input to output, guaranteeing the purity of your sound. Hear the difference. 

LIGHTWEIGHT & EASY TO USE Controls are logically laid out making the XP Series simple to use reducing errors during setup and performance. Its compact size and weight of only 15 pounds makes it the lightest, most powerful mixer in its class. 

3 HIGH CURRENT "GREEN" CLASS-D AMPLIFIERS produce total of 1200w RMS, 1600w peak. Class D amps not only run cooler, but their power capabilities are outstanding. The main L and R delivers 800w RMS (400w/400w) and the Monitor output delivers another 400w RMS - this kind of power maintains sonic purity while eliminating outboard power amps. Speaker outputs accept either standard 1/4" or Speakon™ connectors for secure connections with maximum power transfer to your speakers. Output meters and clip LED's give you a visual indicator for each amp. 

HIGH CURRENT "GREEN" SWITCHMODE POWER SUPPLY conserves power by operating at higher efficiency. The DC voltage supply is recharged 100,000 times per second, delivering continuous high current to the power amps. 

2 INDEPENDENT 24-BIT STEREO DSP EFFECTS allow you to assign each channel to your choice of effects. You can dedicate chorus/reverb to the acoustic guitar channel and a lush reverb to the vocals, etc. Both effects are adjustable to your stage monitors so you can hear yourself with full effects. The effects processors with 256 effects each include reverbs, choruses, flanging and echoes with fully adjustable parameters for damping, decay, depth, speed, regeneration and time.

ACTIVE 3 BAND CHANNEL EQ provides easy adjustment for the tone you want. The 80Hz LO frequency control delivers a solid non-flabby bass. A simple adjustment with the MID band control brings out the best sound for vocals or guitar by affecting the very important 750Hz frequency range. The 11.5k Hz HI treble control adds sparkle to your top-end without adding harshness. Both the LO and HI controls are "shelving", which means they are effective from 20Hz to 20kHz. 

THREE 7-BAND EQUALIZERS provide precise adjustments to fine tune your overall sound and to help control feedback. A stereo (dual) graphic equalizer controls the main L and R outputs and a mono equalizer controls the monitor output. 

ENGINEERED TO LAST Every XP Series mixer incorporates a rugged steel chassis with protective side panels. Continuous full power is assured from high-grade 6063-T5-aluminum heat sinks cooled by a variable speed fan. Sealed controls and switches guard against the outside elements while heavy-duty connectors provide a positive connection to your cables. Hidden deep in the heart of these mixers is the "SMT" Surface Mount Technology that utilizes surface mounted components to prevent parts from shaking or vibrating loose. Precision 1% tolerances guarantee your settings will be accurate every time. Fire retardant FR-4 military spec circuit cards feature double-sided copper to guard against noise and radio frequencies (RF).

"I just used my new equipment for the first time and I am absolutely STUNNED at the quality. This is the most impressive and amazing PA system I have ever used. I cannot thank you enough. I am sold on Carvin and will continue using, and promoting, your product from this point forward. 

I speak to about 200,000 people a year on my speaking tours and your system will make it more enjoyable for everyone!"

"Our working bar band needed a fresh PA and in my "less is more" aproach I sought a small but powerful package. The XP1000L delivered. With the onboard fx, effective EQ's and the power to cut through with clarity it is clearly the best value on the market. I puchased the package with the LM12's, cables and mics which made it an unbeatable value. The three amps run cool and clean with all the features we need to sound our best. One nice feature is the music break button. Once you have all your settings dialed in there is no need to dial everything down between sets. The light weight and compact size makes load-ins a breeze. Get won't be disappointed."

"Ran this for 24 hours straight at an outdoor Relay for Life event. Several acts and then a DJ used it. No problems! It was powerful, clean, and flexible. I chose the XP1000L over the competition and it was a easy choice. Great product & Made in the USA baby. Gives me options for small to medium venues. Paired with Carvin LM15 speakers you get a fantastic sound at a fair price. Thanks Carvin!"

"Ok, if the guys at Carvin don't mind I'm going to sing the praises of the XP1000L and also tell you the real limitations and practical applications of this powerful little powered PA mixer. (at least from my 18 months of experience with the unit). I originally bought this board to mess around in the garage with my 3 piece band which eventually fell by the wayside. I then hooked up with 4 other guys to form and AC/DC tribute. Our first gig was in a club that seats about 350 people. 200 People actually paid at the door so that gives you an idea of the sound requirements of the room. A friend that we asked to run the sound kind of snickered when I showed the setup to him, but I had confidence in Carvin. This little thing? is what he said. We use Four 8 ohm main front speaker enclosures. The tops are 2 cabs I built with 400 watt Carvin 8 ohm 15 inch woofers and 100 watt horns. The bottoms are 3 way : 15, 10 and horns with scoops of another brand. We did have to run a sub mix for the Roland electronic drums our drummer was using at the time, he has since gone acoustic. The bottom line is the main volume never got above 5 and that was for headroom. The gain and channel volume was kept low. The sound man was floored when the owner asked us to turn DOWN. For larger rooms we will be buying some 18" subs and a Carivin power amp, or getting an RX1200L to combine with the XP1000L. Anything bigger than 500 seats in Atlanta has a house PA. If you are on a budget, starting out playing the clubs and need a no fuss BIG sound these units are for you. Catch our you tube videos by searching Hells Bells Douglasville GA. Everything uploaded has been powered by our XP1000L. (please note that all videos were recorded with a small wonder cam that has a condenser mic and the bottom end drops out, but it was there when we played it!) Thanks Carvin, you made my year!!!"

"After years of toting the big racks, I downsized my PA for the clubs. Nice mixer, the Carvin XP1000L. I like how the controls are staggered for easy access. Break button is a nice touch. One super feature is the combo 1/4" and speakon jacks in the amp section. Not many small mixers offer a sensitivity/input gain, but this one does. All in all, a great little mixer, and dare I say it, American Made!!! Best delay I've heard in a powered mixer, most are ineffective, and I really like that it weighs just 15 lbs."

"I play in an acoustic quartet. This mixer is just awsome for our playing style. Pumps out enough power to play clubs, partys, etc. with lots of headroom to spare. The thing that impressed me most was the weight. For it's power output, it feels very light. No background noise or hum. Very solid unit."

XP1000L-PM12 System: I've known about Carvin for many years and honestly don't remember how I first heard of them. Good quality products, and a great value. Both customer service experiences have been excellent. Thinking I had a problem with the powered mixer, customer service was prompt and courteous in setting up an exchange. When I discovered my error and called to cancel the shipment for exchange, Joe was equally professional and understanding.
