FP 13000




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 13000, one of the highest power models of the FP+ Series, continues

this tradition. At the core of the FP 13000’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. Further contributing to the remarkable

efficiency of the FP 13000 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 13000.

To keep its cool under extreme demands, the FP 13000 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 13000 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 13000 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 13000 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 13000 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 13000 is shipped with a NomadLink network interface as standard. In conjunction with DeviceControl software, or the leading

third party control platforms, NomadLink network 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).


Unprecedented power density – The FP 13000 delivers a total

of 13000 W (2 x 6500 W @ 2 ohms) in only 2U.

 Lab.gruppen sound quality – FP 13000 amplifiers maintain

the impeccable sonic performance standards set by the original

fP Series, with the same durability and even greater efficiency.

 NomadLink® network ready – Monitoring and control of key

functions accessible via the intuitive DeviceControl software and

the robust, daisy-chained NomadLink network , as well as by the

leading third party control platforms.

 Patented Class TD® amplifier topology – Road-proven output

stage delivers Class B audio quality with Class D efficiency.

 Regulated Switch Mode Power Supply (R.SMPS) – Output

power remains constant even with significant drops in the mains


 Efficient cooling system – Unique, lightweight Intercooler® copper

cooling system dissipates more heat to allow extended peak


 Adjustable parameters – Selectable Gain, scalable Voltage Peak

Limiter (VPL™), and bridge-mode operation allow custom configuration

for any system or application.

 XLR input and link connectors

 Heavy-duty binding post output connectors

 Comprehensive protection and warning – Excessive output

current, DC, high temperature, very high frequency (VHF), short

circuit, open load, mains fuse protection, and soft start.

Note 3): Regarding n.r. (not recommended) notes: The amplifier will be fully operational in bridge-mode into 2 ohm and high impedance (Hi-Z) loads, but due to physical

constraints in the construction, the max. output power will not be significanty higher than running individual channels and therefore this mode of operation is not
