Lab Gruppen's C 20:8X delivers 8 × 250 W (max. continuous output power, all 8 channels driven, VPL set at 100 V and Gain set at 32 dB) at 4 ohms, 8 ohms, 16 ohms or 70 Vrms; 500 W at 100 Vrms is available in bridge mode.

The C 20:8X employs a cost-efficient, proprietary Class D output design.  Other features include a universal power supply, selectable 35 Hz high-pass filter, and built-in GPIO control facilities.

Each channel has an individually configurable Voltage Peak Limiter (VPL), which allows the output to be optimized for any loudspeaker load – whether a single large subwoofer or a series of small 70 V loudspeakers (100 V in bridge mode).  VPL works in combination with adjustable input gain (adjustable in 2-channel blocks) to achieve maximum headroom regardless of input levels or output impedances.  Additionally a 35 Hz high pass filter may be inserted in each 2-channel section.

Every C Series amplifier 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 under network control.

GPIO facilities allow access to key amplifier functions such as power on/off and fault reporting.

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.
