XTi Series Crown amps all have internal fans with three control settings. They incorporate a low temperature setting variable fan speed that adjusts power draw and cooling.

Lab Gruppen C Series 10:4X amps The Lab Gruppen Amp has 8 inputs for 4 amp channels so we can send 4 inputs of feed and 4 inputs of paging allowing for individual adjustment of volume of each send for each zone. Lab Gruppen can also be operated by both Apple and PC interface allowing for greater flexibility of control.
