The iP 450 is a space-saving power amplifier, ideal for use in installations
as well as in cost-effective live sound systems.
The iP 450 has the same features and protection circuits as Lab.gruppen?s
more powerful amplifiers. Today there are many power amplifiers in this
power range in the markets, however they used to save on important features
This makes the iP 450 one of the few professional power amplifiers in
the low-medium power level range.
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.

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 systems:
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
Sophisticated protection circuitry, combining:
– 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.
