Lab.gruppen launches update to iconic PLM Series

PLM+ is the brand new touring platform from Lab.gruppen, a platform that offers all of the unique performance characteristics, flexibility, and raw power of the 20000Q, but with twice the processing power, twice the throughput and a whole host of additional features and improvements designed to deliver real world benefits and make the life cycle of any production easier, smoother and more efficient, from the system design stage, operating, through to the final load out. 

By combining enormous power with industry-leading Lake Processing, the PLM 20000Q has been a driving force for many speaker brands and rental companies, singularly capable of driving almost any loudspeaker system or array – of any size or configuration. With PLM+ there is no “almost”. Whether the load comprises subwoofers, high frequency drivers, full range loudspeakers, and constant voltage distributed systems, or any combination thereof – PLM+ can take care of it all. The new PLM+ platform offers Four Analog inputs, Four AES inputs, Four Power Outputs, 4 Lake Contour Modules, 8×8 Dante I/O, 2 port 1GB network switch, dual redundancy and more, all in all offering a never before seen flexibility without compromise.

PLM+ benefits do not stop there, a total of up to 16 Inputs can be routed to a PLM+ device, allowing audio format conversion from one input type to another, and then delivering these inputs to other devices in the system. Matrixing/summing of inputs can be easily achieved and controlled within the Lake environment, an environment expected by most engineers at front of house or monitors, where using a tablet computer, they can tune, monitor and drive their system.


PLM 12K44 – which is targeted as a successor to the PLM 10000Q – offers a giant leap forward in its power segment with Universal power supply, PFC, 8 x Dante Break in/out, and other hugely significant benefits never before available in tour sound.
