JBL VRX932 Rigging

Chris Miller from CTM Sound in Sacramento, CA contacted us for assistance rigging these JBL Professional VRX932 clusters at a local ice rink. Polar Focus provided custom made wood beam brackets along with our Blackbird aftermarket frame for the JBL VRX932 family. Using this kit, Chris had full control of pan and tilt under load.

Polar Focus rigging at Penn State

This gymnasium at Penn State Altoona recently had a new sound system installed
by Steve Obenreder of RPC Video in Verona, PA.

Polar Focus also provided PE stamped drawings for the state of PA.
This was a neat and clean job by the team at RPC Video. Go Nittany Lions!

Reformation Lutheran Church

Paul Colella of McClelland Sound in Wichita asked Polar Focus to design rigging for this installation at Reformation Lutheran Church.

This cluster utilized 10 JBL Professional VT4886 line array modules as a main cluster, 1 JBL AC2895 as a fill box, and a Danley Sound Labs, Inc. TH118i subwoofer. All of the speakers were supported from a steel I beam in a recessed cavity behind sheetrock at the peak of the roof. The line array was interesting in that we used hidden counterweights on the front of the line array frame to avoid using a pull back. Of course, the main cluster has infinitely adjustable tilt under load.

Clean installation with custom color on speakers and rigging by Paul and his team.

Orpheum Theater

Steve Olson of the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis called us for help upgrading the house sound system, including new rigging. Steve elected to use a center cluster of ten Electro-Voice XLD291 along with left and right clusters each using one EVF 2151D with an EVH 1152S.


Each side cluster connected into a group using the Electro-Voice grouping hardware. Polar Focus provided the powdercoated lighting truss, and all of the hardware down to the tops of the speakers. Polar Focus also provided PE stamped drawings for the state of Minnesota for this design. Here are some photos Steve sent us of the completed installation. Beautiful work, Steve!

Ravena School System Installation

This beautiful system in Ravena, NY was installed by Ronco Communications & Specialized, led by Scott Hall. The job used JBL Professional PD6322/66 loudspeakers in a transverse format. It was desirable to use these speakers with yokes, but the speakers did not have yoke holes at the center of gravity.

Polar Focus designed laser plate adapters for the ends of the speakers, to present yoke holes and then fabricated custom matching yokes. The yokes were supported by the Polar Focus Stem product, which allowed for a clean penetration through the ceiling panel, and acted as a cable raceway so no signal cable was visible. This system looks and sounds terrific. Good work by Scott and the gang at Ronco!

The Stone Church – Brattleboro, VT

Robin Johnson of The Stone Church contacted us to find a clean and economical line array installation method in this beautiful church building in Brattleboro, VT.


The speakers utilized were 3 JBL Professional VRX 932 per side. Each cluster was
aimed using a Polar Focus Blackbird frame with infinite tilt adjustability, with
structural extension posts that are also cable raceways. Each cluster had full pan
and tilt adjustability with no visible shackles, wire rope, chain or signal cable.

Design assistance was provided by Klondike Sound of Greenfield, MA. We enjoyed
being a part of this project, great work Robin and the Klondike Sound team!
