LAB GRUPPEN FA602_US1 2 x 60W Commercial Amplifier with Direct Drive Technology and Energy Star Certification (FA602_US1)

The 2 x 60-watt dual-channel Amplifier offers an excellent solution for commercial and industrial settings seeking superior distributed audio quality while prioritizing energy conservation and reduced operational costs. Its capacity to deliver high-quality sound across both Low-Z (4/8 Ohm) and High-Z (70/100 V) loudspeaker configurations ensures exceptional flexibility on every channel. The FA602's user-friendly installation and operation make it accessible even to non-technical personnel. Tailored ideally for various venues such as bars, restaurants, retail spaces, hotels, corporate environments, educational institutions, or any location requiring background music or a reliable public address system, the FA602 stands as a versatile and reliable audio solution.

Energy Star * Certified

The FA602's direct drive constant power technology not only ensures superior audio performance and reliability but also boasts exceptional energy efficiency, earning it the esteemed Energy Star certification. This remarkable technology enables the creation of robust amplifier systems that not only reduce electricity expenses but also lessen installation requirements and costs for the main supply. Leveraging existing mains infrastructure during installation is highly probable, resulting in substantial savings in both installation and ongoing operational costs, while also contributing to environmental preservation. This amalgamation of efficiency, cost savings, and environmental consciousness highlights the FA602's remarkable value proposition.

Easy To Install

The FA602 comes equipped with rubber feet, enabling the amps to be placed on a desk, shelf, or any clear surface without any additional installation requirements. However, optional rack mounting hardware is also supplied, allowing one or several models to be housed and protected inside an enclosure. This adds extensive flexibility as a single product can be housed in a half 19" rack or full rack enclosure as well and a pair of amplifiers can easily be mounted side-by-side in a single rack space. With the included brackets the unit can also be mounted to a wall or under a table/shelf.

Automatic Power On/Off

The FA602 features a flexible power scheme that intelligently activates or deactivates based on the input signal, effectively reducing consumption during signal absence. Requiring minimal configuration, this energy-efficient amplifier system sets up effortlessly for hands-free operation. In instances where the FA602 is powered but doesn't receive an input signal for 20 minutes, the system seamlessly transitions into sleep mode, minimizing power usage. Once the Auto Ramp circuit detects a signal, the system promptly powers on, resuming normal operation. Additionally, the amplifier offers quick access to standby mode or activation via the front panel power button, providing convenient control options for immediate operation or standby as needed.

Tamperproof Gain Controls

The input gain controls of the FA602 are positioned on the rear panel, designed for tamperproof operation. While they are accessible for adjustments, altering them requires the use of a tool, ensuring secure and controlled settings to prevent unauthorized modifications or accidental changes.

Easy to Hook Up

For connecting a balanced source such as a mixer or audio processor, a standard 3-pin Euroblock Input socket is provided. Loudspeaker Output is provided in the form of a standard 2-pin Euroblock socket.

Output Configuration

Adjacent to the rear panel Euroblock output connector, intuitive configuration options for the flexible output channels are available via dip switches. These switches enable seamless selection between 100 V, 70 V, 8 Ω, or 4 Ω operation, allowing adjustment of both the maximum output voltage and the gain across the device. Moreover, an individual control is dedicated to engaging the built-in high-pass filter. This feature is crucial for constant voltage systems as it prevents saturation on transformer-enabled loudspeakers and aids in preserving sound integrity. Utilizing the high-pass filter is recommended for optimal performance and maintaining sound quality across various setups.

Expandable Remote Control

The RJ45 receptacle situated on the rear panel provides a wide array of remote control possibilities, enabling compatibility with various control options such as the CRC-V Series of wall controllers and the sleek tabletop controller, the LAB.LEVEL. These controllers can seamlessly interconnect using affordable and easily accessible Ethernet cabling, facilitating convenient and cost-effective remote control and management of the FA602 amplifier.

System Scalability

Commercial installs vary widely in scope and often grow and change over time. The FA602 is part of a family of products that provides both single and dual-zone products that are perfect for building out a system of any size. With its individual zone volume and remote control capabilities, the FA602 is an ideal building block for a dynamic and scalable system solution.

Real-World Energy Savings

The FA602 2 X 60Watt Commercial Amplifier simplifies the delivery of top-quality music and announcements to business and industrial environments. Its seamless integration and user-friendly operation ensure a straightforward system setup and operation. Moreover, equipped with advanced features like Auto Ramp and revolutionary direct drive constant power technology, the Energy Star-certified FA602 doesn't just excel in performance but also boasts remarkable energy efficiency. The resulting energy savings are so substantial that the FA602 can practically cover its own costs in an incredibly short time frame, making it an exceptionally cost-effective and efficient choice for businesses seeking quality and savings in their audio systems.
