Lab Gruppen C68-4
C Series 4-Channel 70v Amplifier (4x1700W)

OUR PART #  C68-4


Lab Gruppen's C 68:4 delivers 4 × 1700 W and is capable of adapting to a wide variety of demanding load conditions.  Each channel has an individually configurable Voltage Peak Limiter (VPL), which allows the output to be optimized for any loudspeaker load – whether one massive subwoofer or a series of small 100/70 V loudspeakers.  VPL works in combination with adjustable input gain to achieve maximum headroom regardless of input levels or output impedances.

Every C Series is ready for the NomadLink® network right out of the box.  With NomadLink, key amplifier parameters are displayed via DeviceControl software, and remote control of channel mutes and power on/off is managed efficiently under network control.

Note 1: Automatic -6 dB gain compensation when bridging channels. Ch.’s A+B and/or C+D, can be bridged individually.
Note 2: PAL can reduce the maximum output power to keep the power supply operating safely, and/or to prevent excessive current draw tripping the mains breaker.
Note 3: For sine waves, peak voltage output values translate to Vrms with the formula V/1.41 = Vrms. E.g. 100 V peak equals app. 70 Vrms.  Hence, outputs can be set for high-impedance loads without requiring a transformer.
