The mission of Polar Focus is to design, manufacture, sell, and support safe, high quality rigging systems used in professional audio and related activities. We strive to be the very best at providing a complete transition between professional loudspeakers and an architectural structure.
Polar Focus® provides the best value, the best products, and the best service in Audio Rigging. Our turnkey systems form a complete transition from the top of your speakers up to and including the roof attachment. Our standard 10:1 design factor provides the high level of safety and peace of mind required by our customers.
Polar Focus® reduces labor cost and variability by providing rigging systems which are pre-assembled to the maximum extent possible.
Polar Focus products are designed to allow for the focus of a loudspeaker or cluster in a polar coordinate frame. Polar coordinate frames have parameters of pan and tilt in typical loudspeaker terminology, latitude and longitude in navigation, pitch and yaw in aeronautics, and θ1 and θ2 (pronounced theta one and theta two) in calculus. The Polar Focus logo is a mathematical definition of pan and tilt.
Prior to the development of the Polar Focus product line, common loudspeaker rigging techniques and equipment resulted in very poor ability to aim loudspeakers. Aiming control frequently resulted in undesirable interactions between the pan and tilt angles of different speakers within a speaker cluster.
Most Polar Focus products separate pan and tilt control to allow ease of aiming while under load, with no undesirable mechanical interactions. Modern loudspeakers and line arrays have precision dispersion pattern control that requires this fast and accurate aiming.
