The fP 3400 is a lightweight and space-saving power amplifier, ideal for use in high quality touring sound systems as well as in demanding permanent installa- tions
Heat and cooling are fundamental problems in extremely high powered amplifiers such as the fP 3400. In 1990, Lab.gruppen patented a high efficiency amplifier, in fact an evolution of the Class D amplifier. Lab.gruppen therefore call it Class TD. It attains the same high efficiency as Class D, but avoids its drawbacks. Class D has a power-amplifier topology using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to achieve high efficiency, but it needs a recovery filter between the output stage and the loudspeaker. Lab.gruppen’s Class TD amplifiers do not need this filter and this is one reason why the Lab.gruppen Class TD obtains the same sonic quality as a traditional Class AB amplifier.
