The Nashville 1000 is rated at 300 Watts via a digital power amplifier (AKA Switchmode) which provides for a cleaner & faster response than the standard analog amplifier. The Nashville 1000 comes equipped with the Peavey 1501-SB (shallow basket) Black Widow Speaker, which can handle a lot of power.This speaker has been specifically voiced for steel guitar applications, and we've discovered that it also performs well for violin and jazz guitar applications. Originally, Peavey had plans to use a neodymium magnet which would have resulted in being a bit lighter than alnico type magnets and would have provided an additional 3Db. Unfortunately, neodymium (a rare earth material) is very expensive to manufacture, and it wouldn't have been cost- efficient to use given the benefit to dollar comparison. In the best interest of the player, Peavey ultimately opted for the 1501-SB instead, which is a time-proven design and has been the industry standard for many years in steel guitar amplification.
