Lab.gruppen intros FA Series two-channel commercial amplifiers

Swedish pro audio supplier Lab.gruppen has introduced its new FA Series amplifier line, designed for commercial and industrial applications. Typical uses for these slimline 2-channel PA amplifiers include bars and restaurants, hospitality and corporate environments. 

The loudspeakers use Direct Drive Technology, said to reduce energy usage.The cabinets are also convection cooled, so no fan noise, making them ideal for silent installations. They sport an automatic power on/off feature which monitors the input signal, automatically shutting the amplifiers down when there’s nothing incoming.

Available in 2x60W, 2x120W and 2x240W configurations, connectivity includes analogue inputs with gain controls for each channel. The manufacturer suggests that they partner Tannoy install loudspeakers, like the CVS and SAT/SUB speaker ranges.

Features include a GPI remote volume control input, using an RJ-45 connector and Ethernet. The FA series is also compatible with Lab.gruppen’s CRC-V series of wall control accessories. The CRC-V is equipped with a single volume control knob, with integrated illumination, and an RJ-45 connector for use with Cat 5/6 cables.

Various mounting options are supported, with brackets bundled for surface mounting and various rack-mounting configurations. A single amp and can be housed in a half 19-inch rack or full-rack enclosure.
