The iP 2100 is a space-saving power amplifier, ideal for use in installations as well as
in cost-effective live sound systems.
The Iron Power (iP) family of power amplifiers is the new compact and versatile line of
professional power amplifiers with classic toroidal iron transformers. To achieve a compact
design, the latest semiconductor technology is utilized. This, together with Lab.gruppen?s
proprietary copper cooling system, Intercooler?, enhances the 2 ohms capacity. A new
Bi-phase wiring scheme also increases the capacity of the power supply. This extends
the power bandwidth in the low end.

(Measured just below clip level, with both channels driven)
Compact design: 2U high
Intercooler? cooling system with front-to-rear airflow
Multiple positions gain switch
Easily accessible dust filter
Improved low-end power bandwidth
Neutrik Combo jack and Phoenix terminal block input connectors
Bridged mono outputs in one SpeakOn connector
Besides the traditionally superb Lab.gruppen sonic performance, there is a full line of features
to make the iP family functional in all situations from installation to cost-effective live sound
Multiple positions Gain switch
To meet the demands for a flexible gain structure in the system, Lab.gruppen offers a multiple
position gain switch. The maximum amplifier gain can be set to all industry standards: 20, 23,
26, 29, 32, 35, 38 and 41 dB.
Versatile input connection
With the Neutrik Combo-jack we offer both the professional XLR-type standard and the semi-pro
1/4? TRS phono-jacks. For installations the 3-pin Phoenix terminal block may be handier.
Toroidal transformers require a huge amount of start current to build up a magnetic flux when the
amplifier is switched on. Therefore Lab.gruppen have included a soft start circuit to minimize the
risk of blowing the wall fuse and to reduce flickering in the lighting.
Sophisticated protection circuitry, combining:
ALStm short circuit protection; the Adaptive Limiting System permits very high peak currents, but
keeps the amplifier within the Safe Operation Area.
DC protection; protects against infrasonic signals
VHF protection; protects the loudspeakers against strong very high frequency non-musical signals
above the audible range.
Thermal protection; prevents the amplifier from being overheated. The protection indicators on the front
panel are switched on, as a warning, before the protection process is initiated.
AC protection; shuts down the power supply if the line voltage is outside the operating voltage.
Clip limiter; prevents severely clipped waveforms from reaching the loudspeakers, whilst maintaining
full peak power.
