A Benchmark For Touring Amplification

Over the past decade, the tight and transparent sound of Lab.gruppen touring amplifiers has earned the praise of renowned FOH engineers and leading sound rental companies worldwide. FP 7000, one of four models in the FP+ Series, continues this tradition. At the core of the FP 7000’s performance is the 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 designs. Further contributing to the remarkable efficiency of the FP 7000 is a Regulated Switch Mode Power Supply (R.SMPS), which gives the added benefit of stabilizing rail voltages to the output even with wide fluctuations of mains voltage. A highly refined and updated circuit layout optimizes the interaction of R.SMPS and Class TD to produce the extraordinary power density of the FP 7000.

To keep its cool under extreme demands, the FP 7000 relies on Lab.gruppen’s proprietary Intercooler®. This innovation uses thousands of copper fins to multiply the exposed heatsink surface’s rapid heat dissipation. Also, all output devices are mounted transverse to the airflow for uniform cooling. As a result, the FP 7000 delivers Lab.gruppen’s’ trademark “all the power, all the time” with no degradation of sonic performance.

To maximize headroom in any application, the FP 7000 offers adjustable input gain along with Lab.gruppen’s exclusive Voltage Peak Limiter (VPL). Adjustable on a per-channel basis, VPL optimizes the output for any load, from a single massive subwoofer to a series of HF compression drivers.

The comprehensive warning and protection features on the FP 7000 safeguard output circuits and connected loads while also extending amplifier life and minimizing the chance of service interruptions. Whether it’s a matter of faulty wiring, improper use, or extreme ambient temperatures, the FP 7000 gives clear indication of any problems. Automatic protection measures engage only at critical thresholds. Operating conditions are re-checked every six seconds and, if a fault is detected, normal operation is resumed when measurements return to nominal.

The FP 7000 is shipped with a NomadLink® network interface as standard. In conjunction with DeviceControl software, NomadLink® allows monitoring of all key amplifier parameters and remote control of power on/off, channel mutes, and channel solo functions. (NomadLink® requires the separate NLB 60E NomadLink® Bridge & Network Controller).
