Event technology company Hoevenaars LGV in Nuenen, the Netherlands, relied on Lab.gruppen PLM amplifiers for Maximaal Hollands in Beursgebouw Eindhoven; a large arena musical event featuring some of the county’s best musical acts. For the main PA, the company opted for an EAW KF760 array for the main rig, with EAW KF730s for fills and delay, powered by Lab.gruppen PLM 10000Q amplifiers. “We have about 60 Lab.gruppen amplifiers; 15 of those are PLM Series units, so we have that added flexibility,” said Pieter Verkooijen of Hoevenaars LGV.
“The integrated Lake processing is definitely a big leap forward. The cohesion between the processing of the signal and amplification is far greater then when working with separate units. Using the PLM you can feel - and hear - that the unit was designed as an integrated processing and amplification system and doesn’t suffer from the ‘communication errors’ you have with separate units that are blind to each other when it comes to speaker load and signal vs amp voltage handling.” With those 15 PLM 10000Q units in their inventory, the PLM Series have proved to be a successful and roadworthy purchase for a company like Hoevenaars LGV, as Verkooijen testifies. “We have experienced considerable improvements in sound quality with the various systems we have, some of which we struggled with for some time prior to using PLM Series. As well as superior sound quality, they are also durable, roadworthy and have a high power to weight ratio.” www.labgruppen.com

Amplifying creativity

With Crown, Lab.gruppen and QSC among those launching their most significant ranges in some time, 2013 is shaping up to be a landmark year for standalone amplifiers. But what’s behind this sudden splurge of creativity?

Lab.gruppen adds to PLM range

UK: The PLM 14000 follows the successful PLM 10000Q Powered Loudspeaker Management system, writes David Davies. Built around a two-channel amplifier platform optimised for high power requirements, the PLM 14000 offers 7000W per channel at 2 ohms and 4350W per channel at 4 ohms.
