Lab.gruppen adds three new to FP+ range

23 January 2009

Sweden - Lab.gruppen has announced the addition of three new models to its FP+ range, including a new flagship amplifier, the FP 14000. Also new are the FP 9000 and the FP 4000, bringing the total number of amplifiers in the FP+ range up to seven.

FP 14000 delivers 14000W (2 x 7000W @ 2 ohms) in just 2U. The Regulated Switch Mode Power Supply (R.SMPS) has been updated throughout the range to provide more sustained high power during extended bursts of low frequency content, while at the same time ensuring stable rail voltages even with wide fluctuations of external mains voltage.

FP 9000 and FP 4000 also offer considerable power density, delivering 9000W (2 x 4500W @ 2 ohms) and 4000W (2 x 2000W @ 2ohms) respectively, in just 2U. At the core of their performance, and indeed that of the FP 14000, is Lab.gruppen's Class TD output stage, an amplifier topology that approaches the exceptional efficiency of Class D while retaining the sonic purity of proven Class B technology designs, says the company.

Like all FP + models, the new amplifiers benefit from Lab.gruppen's proprietary Intercooler system which keeps the amplifier cool under extreme demands. As a result, all of the amplifiers, even the most powerful, are able to deliver Lab.gruppen's trademark "all the power, all the time" with no degradation of sonic performance. Comprehensive warning and protection features minimise the risk of failure.

Furthermore, FP 4000, FP 9000 and FP 14000 are all shipped with a NomadLink network interface as standard. In conjunction with DeviceControl software, NomadLink allows comprehensive monitoring of amplifier status (including fault or warning indications) and also enables remote control of power on/off, channel mute, and channel solo functions.

"Whilst we strive to innovate and improve all the time at Lab.gruppen, there are some things that are already so good, all you can do is optimize them for different flavours of applications," said head of marketing, Tim Chapman. "FP+ definitely falls into that category and remains a cornerstone of our business. The ground-breaking PLM Series of Powered Loudspeaker Management systems is built on an FP+ platform, and FP+ as a stand-alone product continues to remain in inordinately high demand, so we're now very pleased to be able to offer our customers even more power output options for their favourite amplifier."
