Lab.gruppen Adds to FP+ Range

Lab.gruppen announces three new additions to renowned FP+ range

Kungsbacka, Sweden, January 2009 – The FP+ Series is arguably the most successful range of amplifiers ever made by Lab.gruppen. The company is therefore pleased to announce the addition of three new models to the 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 an impressive 14000 W (2 x 7000 W @ 2 ohms) in just 2U. Optimised for sustained performance into extreme low frequency loads, FP 14000 nevertheless maintains Lab.gruppen’s reputation for exceptionally smooth and transparent mid- and high-frequency response. 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 amazing power density, delivering 9000 W (2 x 4500 W @ 2 ohms) and 4000 W (2 x 2000 W @ 2ohms) respectively, in just 2U. At the core of their performance, and indeed that of the FP 14000, is Lab.gruppen’s patented Class TD output stage, a breakthrough amplifier topology that approaches the exceptional efficiency of Class D while retaining the sonic purity of proven Class B technology designs. The classic Lab.gruppen tight and transparent sound has long earned the praise of renowned sound engineers and leading sound rental companies worldwide.

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, whatever the circumstances, and help keep your show running safely and smoothly. 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, with a grin. “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. FP+ is a bit like the Mary Poppins of the amplifier world – Practically Perfect In Every Way!?
